GOP FRAUD. Say it's not so.
In an ugly Arizona race where party control of the U.S. Senate may be up for grabs, GOP candidate Jeff Flake’s (R-AZ) Senate campaign appears to be purposely misinforming registered Democratic voters in order to suppress their votes.
The reporters spoke with “half a dozen” registered Democrats who received the robocalls over the weekend; some were directed to polling locations as far as 9 or 11 miles away from their actual polling place. The Democratic candidate disadvantaged by the misleading robocalls, Richard Carmona, says the actions of Flake’s campaign are ” really detrimental to the democratic process.”
A spokesperson for Flake’s campaign gave the local news a written statement that didn’t seem to address the incorrect polling instructions; instead, it offered the excuse that the Democrats who received the misleading calls must live in Republican households. However, all the Democrats rebutted that claim, according to the local NBC reporters, saying there are no registered Republicans in their home.
