GOP: Supress the Detroit Vote

Read this article, via Truthout:
DETROIT (AP) -- Democrats on Wednesday denounced a Republican lawmaker quoted in a newspaper as saying the GOP would fare poorly in this year's elections if it failed to "suppress the Detroit vote."

Rep. Alexander Lipsey, D-Kalamazoo comments:
"This is the endgame strategy the Republican Party has decided to utilize, rather than positive strategies," he said. "They are strategizing, "How can we get those folks we don't care about from going to the polls?"'

By the way, 83 percent of Detroit's population is African American.

This is also found on David Sirota's blog, where he also links to other GOP efforts to prevent eligible voters from bunching a ballot.
