Comments: US Congresscritter censured after calling 2000 election a "coup d'├ętat"

If "disenfranchised" voters weren't able to vote, then how did *she* get into Congress?

Earlier this year, Brown said that Bush's camp was "a bunch of white men" and they all look alike to her.

And she's also one of the representatives calling for UN observers in this year's presidential election:

I didn't know that a representative could get their hand spanked and be told to shut up for a day.

channel 4 news had coverage of that on monday night as part of a story about some 4000 Florida Blacks being denied their voting rights again.

Had an interview with a man whose name escapes me. He had been denied the right to vote in one or more elections years ago due to his criminal record, (receiving stolen goods) but had successfully appealed to the State legislature or the governor and had had his right to vote reinstated. He pointed out that he had voted in the last 4 presidential elections and some 90% of local ones yet this year he mysteriously got a letter saying he was a felon and could not vote in november. He pointed out that as 4 years ago he was just one of many.

Channel 4 published the list of blacks declared felons and barred from voting. They had to go to court to be allowed to do so. I counted 4 Ronnie baylors on that list. Same spelling and all.

Funny how this is happening for the second time in as many elections. Even more strange is that as 4 years ago the big chimp is running and surprise surprise this is happening again in the state that his brother just happens to be governor of. This would obviously have nothing to do with the fact that Bush's winning margin was 537 and that 60% of the blacks mentioned this time around are likely to vote democrat would it?

Good for that representative calling for UN monitoring. If this was happening in Zimbabwe you lot would be up in arms.
