Get Out The Vote, with criminal street gangs?
How would you like to be a New Jersey police officer and look out your window and see several known criminals, including a man you arrested several weeks ago and another who had just been released from prison for shooting a cop? And then find out that the men were sent into the neighborhood by the Democratic Party for GOTV operations – complete with lists of voters names, addresses and phones numbers!
That is what happened Sunday on a quiet street in Morris Township. The officer, who’s name we are with holding, specifically heard the men discussing that he was a police officer and that they now know where he lives. The officer confronted the men and they took off. He contacted the local police who responded and caught up with them and about a dozen other men a few blocks away. According to the police report, the men were known criminals and when asked why they were in the neighborhood they stated they were
“campaigning for the Democratic Party.”
In other NJ election day news, N.J. Republicans, Democrats dispute source of automated calls for independent candidate Daggett
Republicans today accused the state Democratic Party of trying to trick GOP voters into casting their ballots for the independent candidate in an effort to aid Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine, who is seeking re-election Tuesday.
Sen. Joseph Kyrillos (R-Monmouth), the chairman of Republican Chris Christie’s campaign, told a Monmouth County crowd that “Jon Corzine’s Democratic State Committee” has been making automated calls to people urging them to vote against Christie and go for the independent, “that guy Daggett or whatever his name is.”
If you go to the above link you can listen to one of the phone calls,
The woman’s voice on the recording criticized Christie for being “extremely wrong when it matters most” and admitting to the New York Times that he’s already backing off his promises — key talking points for the Democrats. The unidentified woman then said voters should “remember Chris Daggett’s words: ‘It’s never wrong to vote for the right person,'” quoting a familiar Daggett line.
The call closed with a disclaimer that it was paid for by the “NJDSC, 196 West State Street, Trenton,” which is the address of state Democratic headquarters. Corzine’s name was never mentioned.
And let’s not forget that Democrats Ask New Jersey Secretary of State to Ignore Mismatched Signatures on Absentee-Ballot Requests (h/t A Blog for All).
And here I thought the Dems were going use the tried-and-true standby, of having the unions show up en masse so they can intimidate and outnumber the usually low voter turnout.
They must be scared that they’re getting so creative.

Hmm… I wonder about voting machines, too.
