republican suppression of the vote:

In 2008, Republican operatives have already:
Tried to prevent Ohio from registering voters at its early voting sites and gone to court to knock hundreds of thousands of voters off the rolls
Admitted plans to use foreclosure notices to challenge thousands of voters in Michigan
Gone to court to try to block early voting in Lake County, Indiana
They are sliming Acorn because Acorn registered 1.3 million black poor and latino voters that had never before voted.
mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow!
