Thread Name: 5 Dems to Stand Trial for Slashing GOP Tires
Subject: RE: 5 Dems to Stand Trial for Slashing GOP Tires
akenaton, you're missing the message big time. The allegation is that aides/volunteers/whatever of the Democratic Party went out and slashed tires of vehicles that were meant to take registered Republicans to the polls the next day. In every election both sides want to get out the vote; dirty tricks to keep the other side home is definitely NOT part of the democratic process.

Dirty tricks in elections have been discovered from time to time- notably in Nixon's time - but we, the people, frown on it. Not to mention that if one side does it, the other side will do something worse and it escalates from there.
