ODP hops on a very important issue this election cycle. The potential disenfranchisement of hundreds of thousands of voters – including the now famous “Joe the Plumber”:
Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern will hold a press conference this afternoon to discuss the potential impact of Republican lawsuits on voters in similar circumstances to “Joe the Plumber” whose last name – Wurzelbacher – appears with an “o” instead of a “u” on registration rolls. Since he is not a new registrant, Joe himself would probably not be among the 200,000 cases who Republicans claim are possible cases of fraud – but other Ohioans in similar situations who are newly registered could be disenfranchised.
Love me some irony!
