    Indiana officials are trying to block almost 45,000 black citizens from voting

    Seems the voter's rights group wants the Justice department to look into this and the local police want to leave it with the local county prosecutors they work with. Either way, Police spokesman Bursten said the process will take weeks.

    It's pretty brazen unless there's evidence of widespread fraud. Why would they do this now? It's bad optics as Indiana is assumed to be safe for Trump-Pence. There is a Senate race where Evan Baye is a stong Democratic candidate and two House seats are held by Democrats.

    It's still an invalid source. Per PF rules, it should be deleted.

    More information, it will be interesting to see how this unfolds, hopefully the people that legally filled out their voter registration will be allowed to vote. If people have been involved in fraud, then they should be punished.

    All politics is dirty, but dirty politics is despicable.
