Shorter Krugman

Between the felony roll and voter intimidation by the state police, the State of Florida is doing everything it can to insure that black voters – a huge block of Democrats, by the way – stay away from the ballot box.

Tie this together with Bob Herbert’s column Supress the Vote? from the August 16, 2004 and the post I did about the F.B.I. shaking down protestors and what emerges is a pattern of intimidation, fraud, and scare tactics that makes level-headed people wonder if the tin-foil hat brigade isn’t too far off the mark.
