Must Read Greg Palest Post

Greg Palest has a must-read post on a voter the suppression tactic caging. Monica Goodling dropped the bombshell in her opening statements.

Despite my and others' best efforts, [Deputy Attorney General, Paul McNulty]'s public testimony was incomplete or inaccurate in a number of respects. As explained in more detail in my written remarks, I believe that the Deputy was not fully candid about his knowledge of White House involvement in the replacement decision, failed to disclose that he had some knowledge of the White House's interest in selecting Tim Griffin as Interim U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, inaccurately described the Department's internal assessment of the Parsky Commission, and failed to disclose that he had some knowledge of allegations that Tim Griffin had been involved in vote "caging" during his work on the President's 2004 campaign.

Caging is sending emails targeted to people not likely to respond. If no reply is returned they are then taken off the voter rolls. This is completely illegal. Not a single Democrat pressed to find out Griffin's involvement or his former boss Karl Rove. Dahlia Lithwick runs through a list of other questions the Democrats fumbled on.

Below is a caging email Griffith was involved in to purge homeless people off voting rolls.
