Kennedy and Palast are accusing the republicans of such things as:
- at least 2.7 million new voters have had their applications to register rejected
- a Republican secretary of state blocked 43 percent of all new voters in Los Angeles from registering in early 2006
- states reported scrubbing at least 10 million voters from their rolls on questionable grounds between 2004 and 2006
- Colorado holds the record: Donetta Davidson, the Republican secretary of state, and her GOP successor oversaw the elimination of nearly one of every six of their state's voters.
- In 2004, a third of all provisional ballots — as many as 1 million votes — were simply thrown away at the discretion of election officials [as a result of caging operations].
- Add up all the modern-day barriers to voting erected since the 2004 election — the new registrations thrown out, the existing registrations scrubbed, the spoiled ballots, the provisional ballots that were never counted — and what you have is millions of voters, more than enough to swing the presidential election, quietly being detached from the electorate by subterfuge.
