Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee galvanized hundreds of supporters of Issue 2 Friday in Mason – by jokingly urging them to stop opponents from voting.
“Make a list… Call them and ask them, ‘Are you going to vote on Issue 2 and are you going to vote for it?’ If they say no, well, you just make sure that they don’t go vote. Let the air out of their tires on election day. Tell them the election has been moved to a different date. That’s up to you how you creatively get the job done.”
Yeah, that might have been funny if this sort of voter suppression wasn't actually being done by Republicans in real life. I don't know if anyone has actually sunk to slashing tires, but they have certainly sent fliers to likely Democratic voters saying that the election date had changed or that their polling place had moved.
