    Felons registering new voters for Dems

    According to David A. Lieb of the AP:
    Felons Paid in Voter Registration Drive

    "A Democratic group crucial to John Kerry's presidential campaign has paid felons - some convicted of sex offenses, assault and burglary - to conduct door-to-door voter registration drives in at least three election swing states."

    "America Coming Together... employs felons as voter canvassers in major metropolitan areas... Some lived in halfway houses, and at least four returned to prison."

    "ACT canvassers ...gather telephone numbers and other personal information, such as driver's license numbers or partial Social Security numbers, depending on what a state requires for voter registration."

    Yikes, this just doesn't seem right. Have felons acquiring and filtering sensitive information? I'm all for rehab when appropriate but this is just too risky. What is ACT thinking?!

    Yikes again. The top link isn't working? I'm still getting it, but I guess gremlins are at work. Thanks for the follow-up.

    How can this be? The internet, and technology as a whole, is always so reliable? Maybe ACT can recommend some rehabbed technicians.

    Very astute, matt.

    "...convicted of sex offenses... election swing states."
