Barack Obama and John McCain Ready Their Lawyers

If being announced the winner on election night is Plan A, then John McCain and Barack Obama's respective Plan B could be litigation. Both candidates have assembled teams of lawyers as part of their campaign strategies.

The barrage of barristers will be on hand to handle any legal controversy involving newly registered voters, huge turnout, and voter fraud or intimidation.

A Democratic lawyer in Florida has recruited about 5,000 lawyers to monitor precincts, assist voters turned away at the polls, and take to court any disputes that cannot be resolved. Since voters are out of luck after the polls close, it seems important to make sure no proper voter is disqualified.

Watching HBO's Recount provided more than enough 2000 flashbacks. I hope we don't see more on Nov. 4.

Seriously, is Micky Mouse going to show up to vote? Of course not. The actions True is describing are much more serious.

Which is a drop in the bucket compared to Obama's donations to ACORN.

John McCain paid $175,000 of campaign money to a Republican operative accused of massive voter registration fraud in several states, it has emerged. The documents show that a joint committee of the McCain-Palin campaign, the Republican National Committee and the California Republican Party, made the payment to Lincoln Strategy, of which Mr Sproul is the managing partner, for the purposes of “voter registration”. Mr Sproul has been investigated on numerous occasions for preventing Democrats from voting, destroying registration forms and leading efforts to get Ralph Nader on ballots to leach the Democratic vote. In October last year, the House Judiciary Committee wrote to the Attorney General requesting answers regarding a number of allegations against Mr Sproul’s firm, then known as Sproul and Associates. It referred to evidence that ahead of the 2004 national elections, the firm trained staff only to register Republican voters and destroyed any other registration cards, citing affidavits from former staff members and investigations by television news programs. One former worker testified that “fooling people was key to the job” and that “canvassers were told to act as if they were non-partisan, to hide that they were working for the RNC, especially if approached by the media,” according to the committee’s letter. It also cited reports from public libraries across the country that the firm had asked to set up voter registration tables claiming it was working on behalf of the non-partisan group America Votes, though in fact no such link existed. The revelation of Mr Sproul’s involvement with the McCain campaign – he has also donated $30,000 to the ticket and received at least another $37,000 directly from the RNC – could undermine his case (about ACORN).

I am very scared about this. I have heard that they are sending out postcards to african americans in Florida telling them that if they show up to vote, and their driver's license address doesn't match their registration, not only will they be turned away, but they will be arrested! I am really concerned about lies likes these affection large numbers of people.

I'll be on patrol at some precinct!!!! I'm a little excited, we are doing the same thing they are doing in FL, but a non-partisan organization, we are told to watch like hawks and the minute anyone gets hassled by the people working the stations we swoop in with their rights, I'm like a superhero but much, much geekier!

This makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. I just want a decision on the 4th. No whining from the loser, just a clear and decisive victory, please.

It's just crazy, really. They are already prepared to make it an outcry... leaving no chance for it to go smoothly. It's too important to everyone, but that's certainly not going to make it any easier.
