It has become increasingly obvious to all bloggers and possibly even the MSMers that Campaign-Election dirty tricks and tactics against Bush-Cheney supporters are wide-spread and not just from Kedwards. All across the country there have been threats and intimidation against supporters, reports of vandalism, attacks and break-ins of Republican HQs, peoples homes and cars. I received a memo from Bush-Cheney Campaign Manager Ken Mehlman giving a toll-free hotline to call if you suffer or witness any intimidation or harrassment.
I am appalled.

In Missouri, a flyer shows a photograph of a young black man under a fire hose in the 1950s. The flyer tells African-Americans this is an example of how Republicans have kept voters from the polls. In Colorado, Republican voters got calls telling them their family members in Iraq had died. The callers claimed that call would be real unless Kerry was elected.

In these final days, we can only expect more of this filth.

I urge you to turn on your answering machine. If you get a call from an unknown number, let the machine pick it up. It may be the latest campaign of smear, fear and lies from our opponents.

If you get one of these disgusting calls, or an outrageous flyer or mailing, save the message, call our hotline and let us know.

Just a few weeks ago we saw a Kerry campaign manual that told their staff to allege intimidation even if no evidence existed. Now their allies have begun an incredibly dishonest and disgusting campaign of shadowy calls and misleading flyers.

We need to know immediately if you get one of these calls. We need to know the lies, threats, and distortions those allied against us are spreading. With very few days left, we need you to be our eyes and ears on the ground.

Call the hotline at 1-888-610-8170 if you see to report any of this type of activity.

Sincerely, Ken Mehlman

P.S. The shadowy groups allied against us have begun a campaign of filth and lies. Turn on your answering machine. If you get a message filled with lies, call our hotline at 1-888-610-8170 and let us know.
