Fake Press Release Attributed To Maine GOP?
Those of you who are on Facebook, please take a look at this link from MPBN. The link is to a purported press release from the Maine GOP. If it is so, it is the single most poorly written, nonsensical press release I've ever seen.
EDITED: Since this is supposed to be a press release, I believe I can post the entire text.
MAINE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND UMF COLLEGE DEMOCRATS INTENTIONALLY DISENFRANCHISING MAINE VOTERS
AUGUSTA- After several weeks of vicious attacks, offered by Maine Democratic Leaders, including Democrat Chairman Ben Grant, further information now indicates that Maine Democrats have intentionally disenfranchised Maine voters in an attempt to suppress voter turnout in the 2010 election cycle.
"The 2010 election was about the welfare state that Maine Democrats had created after 38 years of one party control."
"The last election was a vote to move Maine in a different direction and a chance to give Maine working people a voice in Augusta."
"Maine Democrats obviously knew as we did that Maine people across the State were ready for the change that Maine Republicans brought to the table."
We now know that the University of Maine Farmington College Democrats intentionally suppressed voter turnout on Election Day 2010.
"I have absolutely no doubt that the Maine Democratic Party, and the UMF Democrats felt the wave against them and did whatever that they could to stem the tide." Parking the UMF voter van was one way to do that."
UMF records show that UMF college Democrat activists, reserved a university van for the purpose of driving potential voters to the polls, and then simply parked the van.
"Maine Democrats have criticized and attacked Republicans because they didn't use taxpayer funded vans to drive voters to the polls, we now find out that the Democrat Party parked the van that they had reserved. Who is suppressing the vote?
"UMF Republicans instead worked with the Franklin County Republican Committee and used volunteer automobiles as would be expected by Maine taxpayers."
"The hypocrisy of the Maine Democrat Party only goes to show that they will say anything to attack their opposition, even if it means overlooking the facts"
"Maine Democrats can't have it both ways', Charlie Webster, Chairman of the Maine Republican Party stated, "If anyone made it difficult for Mainer's to participate in the election process it was the Maine Democrat Party, and their activists."
"For the record, the voters of Farmington vote at the Community Center, located 500 yards from the University campus."
