Voter Suppression

Let the voting season begin.  Democrats, facing potentially catastrophic losses in the November elections, are already ramping up charges that Republicans have in the past, and will in the future, attempt to suppress voting among minorities. 

This is very tired rhetoric.  I challenge Democrats to put forth concrete examples of voter suppression and/or intimidation aimed at minorities.  Come on - you've made the accusation; back it up with facts.  If you can't, then please at least come up with some new lines.  I'm sick of the old ones.

The only example I can remember in recent history of a naked attempt to intimidate voters was the "security" posted at polling places in Philadelphia in 2008 by the New Black Panthers.  That was a not so subtle attempt to intimidate white voters, but I guess that's OK with Dems.  What a bunch of lying hypocrites!
