Shell Game

The GOP is trying to relocate polling places in minority-populated sections of Philadelphia. From today's Philadelphia Daily News:
Listervelt Ritter, the Republican leader for the 16th ward in North Philadelphia, said he participated in the effort on four requests because he is tired of polling places controlled by Democrats and the fraud that he claims results. Ritter, an African-American, denied any attempt to suppress minority votes.
"The black neighborhoods are the ones that do the funny stuff," Ritter said. "What are you supposed to do?"

So glad the GOP is keeping their eyes on black neighborhoods, so they don't get all uppity and wantin' to vote. And stuff.
