The governor's attorney also works with a number of major progressive groups on voter efforts. McAuliffe, who has vetoed a number of voter identification related bills in...

Either way she is dead and what do you know that same year Morning Joey left Congress after serving from 1994 to 2001. I really think someone needs to open this "cold case".

    Republican Mac Warner has been West Virginia's secretary of state for only 45 days, and already he has suppressed the votes of up to 36,635 dead people -- in an act of zombiephobia that defies the logic and reason. Where in the state constitution does it say that your right to vote Democratic ends when you die? Doesn't the ADA cover the "living challenged"? Well, it should. [Snip] What next? Voter photo ID to stop you from voting 11 times? If this keeps up, Democrats may never be able to steal another election in the Mountain State.
