The chairman of the Republican Party in Macomb County Michigan, a key swing county in a key swing state, is planning to use a list of foreclosed homes to block people from voting in the upcoming election as part of the state GOP’s effort to challenge some voters on Election Day. 

“We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people aren’t voting from those addresses,” party chairman James Carabelli told Michigan Messenger in a telephone interview earlier this week. He said the local party wanted to make sure that proper electoral procedures were followed.

Really?  They want to make sure procedures are followed?  I say they are liars.  They don’t give a shit about "procedures." They want to make sure the GOP wins in the only way they seem to appreciate winning; by any underhanded means necessary.  And there are people who go along with this; think it’s perfectly fine.  The ding ding ding ding to my racial paranoia?  Disproportionately, those foreclosed homes are residences of African American voters.

Also, does it not seem ludicrous that if one is a citizen who has a foreclosed home, by this method of voter challenge, the right to vote to make a change in representation which may be to one’s benefit is abridged?

Honestly.  I don’t know how they live with themselves.
