Voters Sue Pennsylvania, Election Official Scoffs

PHILADELPHIA, PA - Earlier this week, ANP reported that, come November, Pennsylvania
voters could face substantial delays at the polls. We spoke with the
man running the election in Philadelphia, who scoffed at long lines and

With the help of Voter Action and the NAACP, they filed a complaint
this morning in Philadelphia federal court, specifically citing an
interview between the American News Project and Philadelphia Deputy
City Commissioner Fred Voigt. Here's an update and more of our
interview with Philly's deputy commissioner, Fred Voigt.

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.

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
