BOSTON, April 10 (AP) - Many voters in last year's election were denied access to the polls through trickery and intimidation, Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts told a voters' group on Sunday.
"Last year, too many people were denied their right to vote; too many who tried to vote were intimidated," Mr. Kerry said at an event sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts.
He cited examples of trickery. "Leaflets are handed out saying Democrats vote on Wednesday, Republicans vote on Tuesday," Mr. Kerry said. "People are told in telephone calls that if you've ever had a parking ticket, you're not allowed to vote."
Mr. Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee, has never disputed the outcome of the election, saying voting irregularities did not involve enough votes to change the result.
The Republican National Committee dismissed Mr. Kerry's comments. "While President Bush and members of Congress are working to move our country forward, it's disappointing that some Democrats are focused on rehashing baseless allegations more than five months after the election," said a committee spokeswoman, Tracey Schmitt.
"How pathetic can he get?"
Is that a trick question?!
I was thinking this was from the Onion...
Of course, at 4:00pm EST on election day, Lockhart and the other Democrat operatives were claiming "No Problems" with polling... when they thought they were winning...
Republicans vote Tuesday, idiots vote Wednesday.
Kerry is a crackhead.
Same old song and dance, they simply don't get it
Isn't he saying that Democrats are easily tricked and isn't that kinda, well, insulting?
From time to time, Ill ping on noteworthy articles about politics, foreign and military affairs. FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
Meanwhile, tires slashed election day on 20 GOP vans in Michigan - something that actually happened in verifiable physical reality - goes largely unreported.
But Kerry......what about the fraudulent Milwaukee voters who voted using assumed names multiple times?
Vote Kerry for Pope!
Seriously, is this real?
No John, you lost because Bush got more votes ...
Yes, but Bush won anyway, you moron. He really needs to get over himself. I wish he'd get a life. Preferably in France.
I am stunned. Obviosly he and them ain't hit bottom yet.
I guess his 10,000 lawyers ddidn't pick up on any of those shenanagins. How smart can THEY be?
