    Story.

    This is some right asshattery right here. It'd be naive to think that there aren't dems who try to pull off some bullshit, but the repubs really seem to have the market cornered on the particularly low techniques that make the news.

    "In 2007, the General Assembly passed a law making it a Class 1 misdemeanor to knowingly communicate false information to registered voters about the date, time and place of the election or voters' precincts, polling places or voter registration statuses in order to impede their voting. The measure is one of the few such deceptive voting practice laws in the country, according to the watchdog group Common Cause."

    I wonder what the punishment for a Class 1 misdemeanor is ?

    OMG, I hope nobody falls for that. All those flyers should be rounded up and dropped off at the local Republican headquarters.

    This should be vigorously investigated by the Virginia State Attorney General. But he's a Republican, so that won't happen. Or if he finally does, it'll be long after the election is over, with a slap on the wrist for anyone found guilty.
