I got a call from George W. Bush this morning. Okay, it wasn’t actually him, it was a recording of him. I’m a registeted Democrat but I was at one time a registered Republican. I guess that’s why I got the call. I was in the shower when the phone rang so I didn’t answer it and it was transferred to voicemail. Because it was a recorded message the voicemail system didn’t catch the first part of it. Here’s the part that was recorded:
They are clearly actively encouraging people to vote absentee. In Pennsylvania, where I live, you can only vote absentee for a specific list of reasons. It seems to me that they are encouraging people to attempt to vote absentee for other than the acceptable reasons. Is it legal for them to do so? Is it ethical? (Yeah, I know, like that matters in American politics.) Are the Democrats doing anything similar? Has this been done in past elections? I seem to recall hearing that the Republicans did it in Florida in 2000.
