Philadelphia Fliers

Enjoy this bogus "anonymous" letter (courtesy of Talking Points Memo) that was handed out in the black neighborhoods of Philadelphia, apparently to try to suppress the black voters into thinking they would be arrested at polling sites if they had outstanding warrants or traffic tickets. It's really wonderful...

I've never seen a memo, but I have heard this rumor more than once in my years working in the Bronx. The scary part is that many people believe it.

This rumor sounds like something you would hear on the radio in the Grand Theft Auto video game series. If you look up audio for "Weasel News" or "WKTT: We Know The Truth" radio, you'll see what I mean.

Geez Bill, what's with all the politics? Are you having flashbacks to when you voted for Mondale?

I never voted for Mondale, I wasn't even old enough. I was only 17 on election day of 1984.
