Over 48,000 Reports of Voter Intimidation & Fraud In Multiple States

More reports of Voter fraud and intimidation. Pretty wide spread, and this is just the tip of the iceberg I bet. More Change You Can Believe In!

GOP presidential candidate John McCain’s campaign said Tuesday that it is hearing of several instances of voter intimidation and fraud on Election Day, and sued twice to rectify what it sees as illegal conduct. 

On a conference call with reporters, McCain advisers said they have successfully sued in Philadelphia to have their poll watchers recertified, and they expect similar results from an effort to do the same in New Hampshire.

Sen. McCain’s (Ariz.) campaign alleged that Democratic supporters of McCain’s rival, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), have been calling Republican voters in Lancaster, Pa., and telling them that their polling places have been moved. 

McCain spokesman Ben Porritt said caller ID had helped identify the callers as Obama supporters, but he stopped short of saying the calls reflected any kind of concerted effort by the Obama campaign.

“It would be hard to make that connection,” Porritt said.

In some parts of Virginia, the advisers said, the ballot is two pages and only Obama appears on the first page.

McCain adviser Brian Jones said the campaign feels “elections should be decided by voters, not lawyers,” but it is committed to ensuring that fair voting practices are followed.

The Obama campaign has been quiet about any Republican efforts to influence the election through fraud or voter suppression. However, the group Election Protection said it had received more than 48,000 calls by 2:45 p.m. at a toll-free number that opened at 5:30 a.m.
