MCKINNEY UPDATE: I just heard Neal Boortz play a taped recording that has been telephoned to Republican voters in Cynthia McKinney’s district. The recording says that it’s an “official message,” and that voters could be arrested for “voting in a Democratic primary without proper identification.”
This is technically true, but the only ID you need to vote in Georgia is a Voter ID card. The ad gives the impression that it’s illegal for Republicans to vote in a Democratic primary.
I hope that the Justice Department will investigate this ham-handed attempt at voter intimidation.
UPDATE: Boortz is now announcing that the Georgia Secretary of State’s office is investigating. No word about the Department of Justice.
