Here’s a story for you:
The Federal Voting Assistance Program website published an incorrect deadline for the return of returning military ballots in Wisconsin. Had this error not been corrected, thousands of Wisconsin servicemen and women could have been disenfranchised in this key swing state this November.
Now, I’m sure that there will be people who are quick to say this was just a simple oversight, even in spite of the almost daily “oversights” our government now claims to have. But then, this is a matter of politics and, as such, I can’t help but remember something FDR said about this very issue:
In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happened, you can bet it was planned that way.
I guess we should all be thankful for the many grass-roots watch dogs out there, huh? 😉
