And then it turned out G. Gordon Liddy was hiding in the wall, eating rats

This is pretty evil: A private voter registration company largely funded by the Republican National Committee has been registering voters in Nevada and throwing away forms submitted by Democrats.

Two former workers say they personally witnessed company supervisors rip up and trash registration forms signed by Democrats.

"We caught her taking Democrats out of my pile, handed them to her assistant and he ripped them up right in front of us. I grabbed some of them out of the garbage and she tells her assistant to get those from me," said Eric Russell, former Voters Outreach employee.

Eric Russell managed to retrieve a pile of shredded paperwork including signed voter registration forms, all from Democrats. We took them to the Clark County Election Department and confirmed that they had not, in fact, been filed with the county as required by law.

The company has skipped town and moved to Oregon. I tell you, I try and try to keep my inner conspiracy theorist in check, and then things like this keep happening.

According to a TV news story from last night, I remember the reporters trying to corner this guy in downtown Portland, who seemed completely unfazed when they told him that this type of thing was illegal. Word was that the group he was only to be in Portland for a few days, and move on to another city.
