Remember in 2000 when the Democrats’ cry was to “count every vote”? Of course, they didn’t mean it; at the very same time they were suing to disenfranchise thousands of absentee voters in two Florida counties. But disenfranchising an entire state is a bold move, even for them:
After a poll released this week showed President Barack Obama only beating his Democratic primary opponent John Wolfe Jr. by seven points, 45 percent to 38 percent, in Arkansas’s Fourth Congressional District, state Democrats moved to practically disenfranchise Arkansas voters. “[D]elegates Wolfe might claim won’t be recognized at the national convention,” national party officials are telling state Democrats.
The people of Arkansas can vote, so long as they vote for Barack Obama. But any vote cast for the wrong person will not count.
