Monica Goodling: Offered up the keys to the kingdom...
From Sam Smith and Undernews, I saw the first inkling in his post Goodling Admitted to Major Bush Voting Fraud... and Committee Didn't Even Catch It. What it was was a reference to an alleged vote "caging" scheme.
Vote caging? Yeh, I didn't know what it was either. Mr. Smith's post notes that it is an illegal maneuver used to try and block registered voters from voting.
Over at The Brad Blog, Greg Palast posts more on this vote caging scheme. Mr. Palast claims that Karl Rove along with other operatives, perhaps even in the Department of Justice, had a hand in this alleged illegal action and that the attorney firings were actually related to this: those who were fired weren't willing to contribute to the effort. Mr. Palast also alleges that the "lost" Rove emails include lists of those voters who were caged.
We can only hope that we get to the bottom of this.
