State GOP involved in caging activities?

Originally uploaded by johnvierdsen

If this is true, it doesn’t make sense to Vierdsen. According to sources close to Vierdsonian Democracy the S.C. GOP may be involved in caging activities, which have been a very controversial activity in places like Ohio.

Apparently, the state party has been sending out massive amounts of mailpieces, seen in recent payments here:












…and here:


That’s a lot of printing/mail/whatever. And, word is that they’re taking mailings that are returned as “non-deliverable” to conduct challenges to the voter registration rolls.

Don’t know if it’s true, but John’s sources say it is. And, it’s a little messed up. The Republican Party in this state couldn’t be more powerful. Why is the state GOP pulling this?

And, why would Katon Dawson allow it? Sure, politics in South Carolina is a rough-and-tumble business, but Dawson is running for RNC chairman. Certainly, getting involved with unethical voter suppression activity will make him look bad to the rest of the RNC.

    That really isn’t a lot of expenditures for mailing to statewide voters. That could all be one piece of advocacy or GOTV mail.
