"What the hell do you care?'' - Newest republican talking point!

Remember all of those republicans bent on challenging every Democratic voter, in an attempt to intimidate and prevent them from voting? Well here are the most recent results of their attempts to destroy representative democracy:

When Catherine Herold received mail from the Ohio Republican Party earlier this year, she refused it.

The longtime Barberton Democrat wanted no part of the mailing and figured that by refusing it, the GOP would have to pay the return postage.

What she didn't count on was the returned mail being used to challenge the validity of her voter registration.
In addition to [unanimously] dismissing the challenges, the elections board ordered that none of those voters whose registrations were called into question could be challenged again at the polls.
Democratic board member Russ Pry suggested that the four could be subject to criminal prosecution for essentially making false claims on the challenge forms. The form states that making a false claim is subject to prosecution as a fifth-degree felony.
"Why'd you do it?" one challenged voter shouted out at Calhoun. "Who the hell are you?" the man asked.

"What the hell do you care?" replied Calhoun, an attorney.

Prosecute them! And please also note that conspiracy charges, or some similar thing, should be included, as they've apparently had their intimidation plans in place for about a year...

To the masses: This is but one example, out of a sea of jillions, showing what republicans are really about.
