Here at Rooflines, we’ve been tracking recent reports from key swing states uncovering a coordinated GOP election strategy for suppressing votes of foreclosure victims.
ACORN yesterday released a report that examines the facts and potential impact these challenges can have on the presidential election.
Members of the press were invited to the home of foreclosure victim Mary Wilson to discuss the real impact of “foreclosure caging.”
The ACORN report calls on the McCain-Palin campaign and the Republican National Committee to take affirmative steps to ensure that the voting rights of foreclosure victims are not challenged by any operatives or agents of their campaigns or parties by using foreclosure lists to challenge votes.
