    From DailyKos:

    There is no low to which the GOP will not stoop. Now, they are shredding Dem voter registrations in Nevada.
    The firm will be prosecuted, no doubt about that. But will it help Bush take Nevada?

    Btw, this firm, Voters Outreach of America, is one of the firms hired to collect petition signatures for Ralph Nader in Arizona.

    There's a video of the newscast's story at the link to klas-tv. This is truly fucking disturbing.

    From another site, I just obtained the cell phone number of the man in charge of Voters Outreach of America. In case someone wants to call. Just to say hi.


    Granted, he's not answering his phone, but voicemail is available.

    Pretty soon we're going to see right-wing bible thumpers shooting up polling stations in liberal counties just like Dick Cheney thought happened in El Salvador (another Cheney lie, btw).

    Roger that.

    Along those lines, check out this post by Josh Marshall. He links to a careerbuilder.com listing for a position with the company. The listing is paid for by the Republican National Committee.

    I expect to see the RNC distance themselves from Voters Outreach almost immediately. This could get really bad for them [RNC].

    Ha. So I spoke with the Nevada supervisor from Voters Outreach. On the phone. Ohhhh yeahhhhh...

    In a thread on DailyKos, someone posted a cell phone number of a contact with Voter Outreach of America [623.205.9169]. His name is AJ, I believe. I called last night, and he didn't pick up, so I left a voicemail explaining that I was a columnist with a local university newspaper and wanted to write a column about these "spurrious and untrue allegations." I think that warmed 'em up.

    So not thirty minutes ago, I received a phone call from a woman named Jean Morgan [not sure if "Jean" is spelled correctly]. She told me she was the Nevada supervisor for Voters Outreach, although she is now in Phoenix. Since I was playing the sympathetic angle, she gave me her version of the events, and I didn't question them. Here's the rundown:
    • the employee, Eric Russell, had not been following rules. Apparently, their employees are required to turn in registration forms within 24 hours. She told me that he had been keeping his for over a week. After she reprimanded him three times, he brought some registration forms in and left others at home.
    • Russell told her that he refused to turn over the registration forms until he was paid. Morgan refused to pay him until he turned over all of the forms. She also alleged that he had been claiming more hours than he was actually working, and this was another factor in why she was upset at him.
    • Russell then threatened to go to the police if he was not paid. He said he was going to tell the police that Voters Outreach had been destroying Democrat registrations. Morgan claims that Russell had a Dem registration in his hand and crumpled it up in front of her.
    • Morgan also alleged that when she went out to her car that night, the tire had been punctured three times - clearly implying that Russell had done it. Morgan also brought up the fact that Russell's girlfriend had been with him, and the girlfriend had confided in Morgan that Russell was violent with her [the girlfriend].
    • Morgan apparently called them after Russell stormed out. She gave me the police event # [040925-1600].
    • Morgan also gave me the names of three individuals who witnessed Russell's outburst and threat: Greg Carmoushe, Raymond Walker, and J.R. Becemo. I have the phone number for Carmoushe but not the other two.
    Morgan's number is 602.505.2224.

    I know I'm missing some of the details she told me, but that's the overall picture. She was clearly doing her best to slam Russell and make it look as if anything coming out of his mouth is untrue.
