The LDS Church headquarters in Salt Lake City has already been caught organizing a major Mormon get-the-vote drive in the state of Nevada. According to emails obtained by reporter Jon Ralston, a senior Mormon church official in Salt Lake City with the title “Latter Day Saints public affairs specialist” was organizing and instructing Nevada’s Mormon “stake presidents” — local leaders in charge of a dozen congregations and thousands of Mormons each — on top-down strategies to get local Nevada Mormons registered and voting. The email instructions from the “LDS public affairs specialist” included a PowerPoint presentation to be used during Sunday Mormon church services in Nevada. According the instructions:
“You will note that this PowerPoint touches on both encouraging members to vote, as well as helping prepare them for difficult questions posed by their friends, work associates, neighbors, etc.,” Severts wrote, according to Ralston, who first reported the message.
The email instructs Nevada’s Mormon church leaders to direct further questions about the voter registration drive to Judy and Ron Tobler, whose avowed sympathies for Romney and Republican Party advocacy raise a shit-ton of disturbing questions about what’s going on in Nevada. Judy Tobler’s Facebook lists her interests as “Mitt Romney,” “Paul Ryan,” and FreedomWorks, the notorious Koch-linked GOP front group that launched the Tea Party campaign in 2009.
That sound you can hear in the background is LMNO screaming "revoke their tax-exempt status, the bastards" over and over again.
Oh, and going by the latest polls, Romney is projected to win the popular vote by 0.9%, and Obama to win the electoral college votes by a landslide. I really hope this happens, because I'm going to spend November 4th datamining every liberal blogger in the US who declared that when it happened in 2000 with Bush, it meant his Presidency was illegitimate, and then slap them in the face repeatedly while shouting "stop hitting yourself!"
And people wonder why I'm banned from the majority of political forums and blogs out there.
