Brown Calls For Volunteer Lawyers

While Obama Calls In His Own Volunteers To Help Coakley

When dealing with Democrats, surprise trunkfuls of ballots and other such curious voting irregularities are simply part of the process.

From Redstate:

Next week, Massachusetts’s citizens will head to the polls to vote in a historical election. Close elections draw intense scrutiny, and ensuring the accuracy and credibility of the process is crucial. For that reason, the Scott Brown campaign is assembling a volunteer legal team to ensure that no voters are disenfranchised and that all ballots are accurately counted. The citizens of Massachusetts deserve a fair and honest election.

On Election Day, we will need lawyers in a variety of tasks, including legal research of compliance issues that arise; witness interviews, preservation of evidence, and preparation of witness affidavits to document any voting irregularities; and monitoring of polling places, courts, and city halls.

You can sign up at the link below. We will contact you with further information, including a conference call training session.

Please do not wait, Election Day is January 19th!

HERE IS THE LINK TO THE BROWN LEGAL TEAM WEBSITE if you would like to help.

On the opposition's side, Obama is bolstering Coakley's GOTV efforts by lending her his own highly motivated team of volunteers from Organizing For America:

As Mr. Obama appeared alongside Ms. Coakley, thousands of phone calls were being placed to voters by out-of-state volunteers. Organizing for America, the outgrowth of the Obama campaign’s army of volunteers, essentially took over the get-out-the-vote operation for Ms. Coakley.

Jeremy Bird, the deputy director of the organization, said volunteers made 90,000 calls on Saturday to voters in the state and were on their way to repeating that performance on Sunday. In a conference call for volunteers across the country, Mr. Bird said: “Don’t cross your fingers. Dial them.”

Well, we didn't expect them to just take their thrashing lying down, did we?
This is a terribly exciting race. Can hardly wait until tomorrow.
