Republicans use underhanded tactics to discourage Liberal voters

This just in from Ben Brandzel, organizer for Move On "dot org":

We're getting reliable reports of recorded messages sent by Republican groups to progressive voters in cities like Memphis, telling them they'll face prosecution if they try to vote.

It's outrageous. And we need to fight back, fast and hard, to turn the tide. The best way to do that is to make sure every Democrat and progressive knows to where, when, how and why to vote today.

Please make some calls right now to get progressive voters to the polls:

In the last few days, the GOP has even been calling progressive voters at 2:00 in the morning—pretending to be calling from the Democratic campaign in a despicable gambit to suppress the vote.

Calls from machines meant to threaten and confuse can do great harm. But calls from real people meant to inform and empower can do great good.

We must not allow these desperate Republican tricks to rob voters of their voice. We have a few more hours to cut through the lies, remind these folks of their right to vote and give them the information they need to exercise it.

We have a few more hours to win. Right now we're making 30 calls per second, but we need to step it up even more. Please hit the phones!

Keep calling, folks, keep calling.
