"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
The Republican National Committee has been caught red-handed trying to sabotage the Democratic vote around the nation ahead of this year's election. As Brad Friedman at BradBlog.com reported, the Florida Republican Party cut ties with a political firm known as Strategic Allied Consulting after it was discovered that firm changed addresses on numerous voter registration forms to block newly-registered Democrats from voting in November. The scandal is now spreading, as at least ten counties in Florida have discovered these fraudulent registration forms. And law enforcement authorities are getting involved in the matter. And the National Republican Committee has also cut ties with the firm, which it gave $3.1 million to register voters in wing states like Nevada, Colorado, North Carolina, and Virginia. It's unclear how much damage this election fraud may have on the elections in those states. Joining Thom Hartmann to break some new information in this scandal is Greg Palast - investigative journalist with the BBC and the Guardian - and author of the book: "Billionaires & Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps."
