We work for the GOP
In a last ditch effort to suppress democratic votes, Republicans are illegally using robocalls to drive away Dems.
There is a very good diary on Kos dealing with this
Josh Marshall also has more on this
The most important thing to do is to get people to call their local media with tapes of these calls. You start with the local radio, TV and cable news stations. You call the news editor or assignment desk, and tell them that Republicans are harassing Democratic voters with illegal phone calls.
More and more reports coming in of irate voters calling various House Democratic campaigns complaining about the repeat-call-back robocalls.
In other words, these are the harassing calls paid for by the NRCC made to appear that they're from the Democratic campaign. And a lot of angry voters are getting fooled by the scam, it seems.
Take this and the tightening polls together and you get one net result: this election is going to be decided on the ground. It's in the hands of the folks running the get-out-the-vote operations, manning the phone banks, helping people get to the polls. The Republicans are going to do their best to scam their way through this one. So it's up to the people on the ground to make sure they don't get away with it. If you're in the GOTV operation, it's all up to you.
If you're on a campaign, hold a press conference on this. Just five minutes should put the GOP on the defensive.
This is it, this is their last ditch effort to save their seats. We know what they're doing, and if it takes driving around the neighborhood with a bullhorn or standing in a parking lot handing out flyers, we can stop them on the ground. Even if you just e-mail friends with the information, we can stop them. This is all they have. Surrounded by failure, incompetence and perversion, they have to trick their way into office
Will you let them?
