If Only Nevada Republicans Were This "(Un)Genious"

Wow. Just wow. You just have to see this for yourself.

The person recording the video exits a Safeway grocery store and a young woman who is registering voters outside the store asks her, "Are you voting for Romney or Obama?"

The woman recording responds, "Well, wait, I thought you were registering voters a minute ago."

To which the young woman replies, "I am." The person recording then asks, "Well, who are you registering? All voters?"

"Well, I'm actually trying to register people for a particular party. Because we're out here in support of Romney, actually," the young woman registering voters says. [...]

Republicans in El Paso County claim that the video was recorded more than a month ago by a Democratic "campaign operative" and has been released now to damage the Romney campaign. But, Christy Lelait, Chairman for the El Paso County Democrats denies that charge to KOAA. "It's an interesting charge. I don't know of any campaign operatives here in El Paso County and I know for certain that the woman who shot this video is not a campaign operative, she's a volunteer with several different organizations including the El Paso Democratic Party and she's also a precinct chair."

Colorado Republicans are freaking out because denying registration to anyone because of party preference is actually a crime. Oh, and this probably means Mitt Romney's campaign is even more trouble. Whoops.

This actually makes Nevada Republicans look not so bad by comparison. And that's really saying something. As I mentioned last Friday, they do the same voter screening "poll" before deciding to ask someone to register to vote. But jeez, not even the Team Nevada people try to claim they work for the county!

What a hot mess.
