Is the GOP Afraid of Voters with Foreclosures? Lawsuit Filed in Michigan

Michigan GOP plans to challenge voters at the polls using foreclosure lists

The DNC has filed a lawsuit arguing that it is illegal and “un-American.”

The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee have filed a lawsuit in federal court in Michigan over the Michigan GOP’s plan to use foreclosure lists to challenge voters at the polls, as first reported by the Michigan Messenger.

Bauer called the GOP plan to use foreclosure lists “a new and especially repellent version of caging.” Caging is a technique of challenging voters where they take lists of addresses, mail to them with a “do not forward” marking and if for whatever reason those mailings are returned, they use this as a basis for claiming that the voter no longer lives at the address at which they are registered.

  1. “Un-American”? Since when is it un-American to deny the downtrodden equal rights, or an equal voice? We can’t keep all the money, power and privilege in the hands of the top one percent by treating everyone as though they were born with some kind of inalienable rights.
