BREAKING: Florida Dems Told to Vote by Phone

For Full Story, See… BREAKING: Florida Dems Told to Vote by Phone

Adding to a lengthening string of vote suppression tactics, the GOP has now been accused of telling Democrats they can call in their vote for Barack Obama. In the Florida Panhandle county of Okaloosa, Democratic Party headquarters received a report last week from a voter who claimed that she received a phone call advising her she could vote for Obama by telephone. A volunteer who overheard the report relayed to OEN that the voter advised she was asked if she were Democrat and if she planned to vote for Obama. Answering yes to both, she was told, "You can skip the lines and the inconvenience of voting at a polling place by dialing this telephone number..." After the voter dialed it, a pleasant voice said, "Thank you for your vote for Barack Obama."

A second source from Okaloosa would only confirm that the matter had been forwarded to the legal department. A phone call to the attorney for the Okaloosa County Democratic Party went unreturned. OEN could not confirm the language of the alleged phone call. Okaloosa has nearly 125,000 registered voters, one-fourth of whom are Democrats.

Tactics employed this year in Florida include:

* Jewish voters were targeted by phone calls claiming that Barack Obama donated funds to the Palestinian Liberation Organization.
