Block the Vote in Philadelphia!

Via Three Guys, another reason to downsize our Block the Vote staff.

Once again, our employees have been less than discreet, as this article in the Philadelphia Daily News shows.

"It's predominantly, 100 percent black. I'm just not going in there to get a knife in my back."

-- Matt Robb, Republican ward leader in South Philadelphia, on his last-minute request to move five Philly polling places in African-American neighborhoods.

Chris Brennan (with a big assist from Dave Davies) has the scoop in today's Philadelphia Daily News. They learned that high-ranking state GOP and Bush operatives asked local Republicans to try to move 63 polling places at the last minute. Some 53 of the 63 polling places are in districts less than 10 percent white.

Please, Billionaires - Block the Vote, but keep it quiet!
