Republican, n. See Hypocrite.
The same Michigan Republican Party that sent me (and presumably everybody else in my neighborhood) an unsolicited absentee ballot application filed suit to stop the Macomb County Clerk from sending absentee ballot applications to senior citizens in the county.
Circuit Court Judge John C. Foster denied their request for an injunction, and the applications were mailed out the same day.
The attorney representing the plaintiffs "denied the charge that the Republican Party was trying to discourage voting."
Given the evidence of the unsolicited applicate I received, complete with an urgent plea for Michigan Republicans to vote, I'd agree that the Republicans don't want to discourage voting — all they want to discourage is Democrats voting.
