Democrats plan to send 1,000 New York lawyers to precincts in key battleground states on Election Day, part of a nationwide legal SWAT team that will include 10,000 attorneys in all.
And they'll be ready to cry foul on behalf of John Kerry at the first sign of a hanging chad or botched butterfly ballot.
"We're going to be there to make sure that every eligible voter gets to vote and every vote cast gets counted," Henry Berger, New York state counsel for the Kerry campaign, told the New York Post on Sunday. Six hundred New York lawyers alone will be traveling to Florida to keep an eye out for "disenfranchisement." The remaining 400 Empire State legal eagles will fan out across Ohio and Pennsylvania, prominent election lawyer Jerry Goldfeder told the paper.
The plans for the Democrats' legal invasion were hammered out in New York this summer after party chief Terry McAuliffe rejected a bipartisan offer from top Republican Ed Gillespie to share Election Day monitoring.
Altogether, more than 10,000 Democrat lawyers will hit the beaches in at least 15 states on Oct. 30, when they'll begin a crash course on state election law.
Depends on what they call eligible voter
How could they afford 1000 lawyers? Are they all working pro-bono?
I think it was George Will who said recently that Democrats have found that they were unsuccessful in persuading voters that liberal, cradle to grave care was the way for the country to move forward so now they are trying to impose their will through attorneys.
It reminds me of those bots the empire manufactured in "Revenge of the Jedi"
more like pro-Soros
What's the GOP anti-fraud strategy?
I'm a PA Bush supporter, but if we don't have people (lawyers) on the front lines in Philly, it's not going to be good for W.
Probably a few politically active law students are in that mix.
anarchy....... here it comes this will end the litigation lawyers law suit thing if we win this election....
this is all the liberals, lawyers, profressors, DNC, Kerry, Terrorists, communists, socialists....
they are ready to attack......
it is time for
SHOCK AND AWE...... EVERYONE TO THE POLLS WHO CAN GET TO THEM AND TAKE SOMEONE WHO CANT.....
It reminds me of the "Mr. Smith's" in the matrix movie.
What do you call 1000 lawyers off the job, wasting time and democrat money in Florida?
A breath of fresh air.
Find out who these lawyers are, google them, then pass along some of the less savory clients. people who dress in suits don't like to walk around with dog sh!t on their shoes. guilt by association.
Q:What do you call 10,000 democrat lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?
A: Not enough.
"What's the GOP anti-fraud strategy?"
Truth and citizens ready to bring voter fraud by the Democrats out in the open.
I'd like to see 1000 lawyers dispatched.
A good start.
