Troops may run out of time to vote

E-mail Print PDF

Seems that "our troops" now have trouble voting, when, back in 2000, the GOP kept coming up with still more soldiers' votes for Bush at the 11th hour and after. Many of those ballots were too late, and others were improperly filled in--but, hey, that kind of thing would kill votes only when they would have gone to Gore. (Later, it came out that Rep. Steve Buyer, R-IN, worked closely with the Pentagon to get those iffy ballots rushed to Florida: a bald violation of the ban on partisan activities by the US military.)

This time, the Bush regime (in league with the Pentagon?) has been doing all it can to block the military vote, since "our troops" mostly don't support McBush, whose record on the troops' and veterans' benefits, etc., has been dismal. So we've seen the VA try to keep their hospitalized troops and vets from registering to vote; and here we see that, this time, there's no effort to enable those at war to cast their ballots.
