Check this out from Today's NYTimes:
With little notice or discussion, Senator Christopher Bond of Missouri allowed a provision into a Senate appropriations bill that could ban even nonpartisan voter registration efforts in public housing developments all over the country. This is an example of the unfortunate impulse now afflicting some parts of the Republican Party: a desire to suppress voting in poor and minority neighborhoods.
I had talked about this in an earlier posting (see the "Highlights in deceit by republicans - voter blocking" post earlier in Oct.). Low down and despicable are people who stoop to such tactics.
