Cleveland: Keeping Christmas at Home
Ramona: The War on Happy Holidays
I am already tired of the binders of women story--more important than what Mitt said is the fact that he seems to have made himself the hero of the story in complete disregard of the facts at hand.
But speaking of disregarding facts (and law!) a more interesting story is developing over at (dare I mention the initials?) TPM and on local blogs in Harrisonburg VA. A young guy named Colin Small was seen throwing out completed voter registration forms and got arrested for it. Turns out he was employed by the oft-renamed firm sometimes and formerly known as Strategic Allied Consultants, sometimes and formerly run by disgraced consultant Nathan Sproul.
I'm pretty sure that when Mr. Small was interviewed, he told authorities that he was just getting rid of a few old forms that missed the deadline as it was the last day for voter registration in Virginia. But I suspect that somewhere in the neighborhood, a CCTV camera has recorded him doing the same thing on previous days. In which case this is a bigger story. And if others, in other places, have done the same while in the indirect employ of the Republican Party, well, it's a whole other sack of hammers.
I'm of the opinion that while local law enforcement might have some interest in the case, they're not going to deploy the resources to commandeer and watch local surveillance footage. But democracy-loving Daggers and TPM readers, especially locals, could do this.
Anyone live in or near Harrisonburg VA?
There are other Strategic Allied Consultants offices in other places as well--who knows if weekend video-viewing parties might yield up a story....
