Anonymous "Election Lawyer" is Concerned that Justice Department Will Criminally Prosecute Republicans for Exercising First Amendment Rights in Election
See here. A snippet:
One cited example of a "criminal" violation supposedly intended to "suppress" voting was sending mailers informing voters that you must be a citizen to vote, a requirement of state and federal law. One of the deputy chiefs, Mark Blumberg, told FBI agents and federal prosecutors that the individuals responsible for such a brochure should be brought before a federal grand jury to ask them if they belong to any "anti-immigrant" groups. Not surprisingly, this deputy chief also did a detail with Senator Kennedy.
Was anyone else at the meeting to verify or refute what the anonymous election lawyer says? I've been skeptical of such anonymous claims before.
