Obama Campaign Pushes Back Against Possible Voter Suppression

September 16, 2008 3:13 PM

ABC News' Karen Travers and Arnab Datta report: The Obama campaign and DNC have filed an injunction in federal court as an effort to challenge what they deem as illegal voter suppression of people whose houses are in foreclosure.

The injunction is in response to the comments last week from the Macomb County (MI) Republican Party chairman, James Carabelli, who allegedly said: "We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people aren’t voting from those addresses."

On a conference call with reporters, Bob Bauer, general counsel for the Obama campaign, said this practice is illegal and would be used to intimidate and prevent people from going to the polls.

Bauer said that one out of every 285 households in Macomb County have been foreclosed on and MI Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer said that in July 2008 alone, over 11,000 households in Michigan received foreclosures notices.

Bauer and Brewer could not cite specific examples of this already happening in Michigan this cycle. ABC News' Chris Bury reports that Carabelli denies ever saying the statements that were attributed to him in the Michigan Messenger.

Joe Biden addressed this yesterday at an event in Michigan, stating "ladies and gentlemen, I heard, I was told yesterday that there's a Republican County Chairman right here in your state, in Michigan, that said that they're keeping a list of foreclosed homes, suggesting that anyone who lost their home in foreclosure should also lose their right to vote." He added, "if you're worried about losing your home, you should vote, you should vote for the guys who are going to help you keep your home, not those who take it away."

UPDATE: In a paper statement today, Carabelli pushes back hard against the Messenger's reporting.

“This story is not true. The Michigan Messenger made it up,” Carabelli said. “Because of reckless and fabricated reporting by the Michigan Messenger, my good name has been besmirched on the Internet and across the mainstream media and my reputation irrevocably harmed. I never said what the Michigan Messenger quoted me as saying. It’s not true, and I want a full and complete retraction of the quote, and I am taking legal action to get it. Let me state, again and unequivocally, there is no such plan to use foreclosure lists to challenger voters, and I never said there was. This is a story line being pushed by one liberal blog, the Obama campaign, and their friends and operatives on the Left.”

There is OBVIOUSLY more to this story or more legal substance than you understand.

For example, if a home goes into foreclosure November 01, and the people are still LIVING in the home, they can vote.

Residents can vote until they are out on the street.

Period.

Read your own damn article they said we will have a list of foreclosed homes, not homes going through foreclosure.

You are dumb if you get foreclosed on and move yes you can vote as long as your not voting from a address you dont live at. So what is wrong with making sure ppl are not voting from addresses they dont live at?

I'm an Obama supporter, but I agree with you --- when you move, you change your drivers license, your mail, your voter registration. What I DON'T agree with is using lists of foreclosed properties lists. Use the official polling documents.

 Quoting: Pollyannuh


Probably PA, Ohio, michigan and PA are the ones in the midwest. I sent a copy of the paper you posted to the ACLU and told them I would drop my membership if they didnt get involved. They came back with theres a womans coilation that was on it and sure they would get it straitened out.
They also said theyre bogged down in court with all the constitution violations.
They have the power to create reality

I could explain it better but I would need charts, graphs and an easel.

By the way....which ones pink?

Re: Another one!! @$#%#@! Republicans! Obama Campaign Pushes Back Against Possible Voter Suppression in Michigan
IF YOU ARE NO LONGER AT YOUR 'PRESENT ABODE OF RESIDENCE'
DUE TO FORECLOSURE/EVICTION

YOU HAD BEST NOTIFY YOUR VOTERS REGISTAR LOCALLY, ASAP

OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE GIVEN A PROVISIONAL BALLOT

YOUR CURRENT ADDRESS ~MUST~ MATCH THE VOTERS ROLL

A provisional ballot is used to record a vote when there is some question in regards to a given voter's eligibility. A provisional ballot would be cast when:

The voter refuses to show a photo ID (in regions that require one)

The voter's name does not appear on the electoral roll for the given precinct.

The voter's registration contains inaccurate or out-dated information such as the ~wrong address~ or a misspelled name.

The voter's ballot has already been recorded

Whether a provisional ballot is counted is contingent upon the verification of that voter's eligibility.

Sheesh.

I could have very well left it off the original, because it was an update, but, you see, THIS registered Democrat (Polly, in case you're not following) is not deceitful.

Besides, it's one person's comment in defense of himself, and I expect no more and no less. However, why's the guy hanging out there all by himself??? Rather strange, don't you think?
