Special election draws complaints

Three things are certain in life: death, taxes, and Republicans trying to rig elections in Kentucky.

In today's special state senate election in northeastern Kentucky (which the Republicans are almost certain to lose), the state Board of Elections has received complaints about what appear to be aggressive exit polling tactics.

According to these complaints, the pollsters have been asking voters for their Social Security numbers and telling them to try to gather the names of people who have already voted (presumably by catching a glimpse of the voter ledger that you sign).

This is so plainly another Republican intimidation tactic that one wonders how the GOP expects to keep all of what little support it still has.

What, no jammed phone banks?
