Voter purge happening right now.

Brad Blog quotes the CBS news: CBS News: New Study Details Massive Voter Roll Purges Underway in At Least 19 States

...the brief coverage from tonight's Evening News notes 10,000 voters purged in Mississippi, 21,000 in Louisiana and "to top it off, another new study discovered 19 states are ignoring federal law (the National Voter Registration Act), banning systematic purges within 90 days of a federal election."

Among those 19, are a number of battleground states. The report lists: Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Delware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Masachusetts, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas and Washington, as places where massive purges have recently taken place.

CBS ends by noting that their New Jersey voter has now been restored to the rolls, but they warn, "come Election Day, don't count on thousands of others being as fortunate"...

The only way Republicans can possibly win is by cheating. Hang on to your hats, it's going to get really ugly from now on out. And if Obama wins, the shit will hit the fan.

I have checked my voter registration at the county's online site, not once but three times, most recently this week. If I am denied my right to vote when I arrive at the polls... I intend to renounce my commitment to nonviolence. Enough is enough.
