    If you read the article, it didn't stop with sending it to a dead girl:

    There are other problems beside who received the mailer. It has factual mistakes as well. It gives voters the wrong deadline for registration and directs them to the wrong state agency to sign up.

    I did read the entire article. I didn't see where anyone else's vote was suppressed, or what the net gain was. Did they buy a list of Democratic voters? I doubt it, because the dead girl presumably wasn't a registered Democrat. I'm struggling to see how doing this intentionally took votes away from candidates who weren't the ones the Koch funded group was likely supporting.

    Receiving inaccurate voter registration information isn't voter suppression?

    or what the net gain was. Did they buy a list of Democratic voters?
    I don't know. I do know that hundreds of thousands of people got inaccurate voter registration information. They might have only sent it out to Democratic voters, or maybe the area they sent it out to was largely a blue area. It still happened, it isn't the first time, and the only explanation they can provide is "oopsie, must have been a copy and paste error."

    Tell that to the GOP.

    This wasn't the government though. I could actually understand the government doing something stupid like this. A grassroots campaigning organization that does this kind of thing everyday? Not so much...

    I'm confused by your last comment (bolded). What does that mean?

    If this was intentional to suppress votes, then the list would have to be people who the group didn't want to vote, but I haven't seen anything about that. So I'm not seeing a conspiracy here.

If this was some kind of attempt to pull an "ACORN", they did an incredably sloppy job.

    If there is something that's found that indicates they did in fact try and pull a fast one, I'll have no problem hammering them over it on this forum.
    Remarkable. A clear indication of voter fraud but you want to hear their excuse first so you can immediately believe it and give them a pass.

    Also from the article:

    "He also says the problems are superficial insomuch as they don't give bad information that would suppress votes and says that because of the mailers, 5,000 more people have already signed up to vote this year."

    So the "voter suppression" flier has resulted in 5,000 new registered voters. The horror!

    It's not a clear indicator of voter fraud! Good Lord you people. You see "Koch Bothers" and take leave of your senses.

    You have to show intent and motive. The intent of the mass mailing was to enroll more voters. 5,000 people have registered. Success.

    Granted, a typo does have the potential of being an tough obstacle to truly stupid people, so that could disproportionately impact Democrats.
