Meltdown in Florida: Long Lines, Towed Cars and Other Dirty Tricks

Abby Zimet

The Democrats suing to extend Florida's early voting - curtailed last year by a Republican legislature - is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to  electoral chaos there. Voting sites randomly closed, reopened and closed again, people yelling "Let us vote" while standing online for seven hours and  watching their cars get towed, employers telling workers they'll lose their jobs with an Obama win, ads linking Democratics who believe in unions with Jerry Sandusky (say what?) - it's going to be a bumpy ride.


FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
