Christy has this:

UPDATE: Laura Ingraham has asked her listeners to call the Dem Voter protection hotline — and they are now being flooded with calls from crank callers. Please call Laura and tell her what you think about this: 800.876.4123. You can e-mail her here. Apparently, voter intimidation and fraud are a joke to Laura Ingraham. Let's let her know that it is no joke.

UPDATE #2: More on Laura Ingraham: "caller indicated she is running a tape of Bill Clinton over and over saying "call 1-888 Dem Vote to report problems" — and then making fun of him, thus producing a spike in crank calls to the number" Protecting voter integrity is no joke. And I am not laughing. If anyone has audio of this, I'd love it.

If anyone can get a clip of this, please do and send it to me at intoxination [at]


Now that polling places are open throughout the country, use this thread to share your voting experiences today (good or bad). Don't forget to try and encourage family, friends and co-workers to get out and vote today (offer rides if they need it). The problems being reported can not be a discouragement to anyone. If you encounter problems, be sure to report them to 1-888-DEM-VOTE.

There is still time to help "Get Out The Vote" today.

A quick note about the site.

As with all elections, we are expecting a heavy server load today. I am putting safeguards in to limit any problems. This afternoon, I will be disabling the category and archive pages for the site (they will be restored tomorrow). This feature adds a lot to the server load and if a search engine decides to crawl us at that time, it will really hurt. We will be monitoring everything closely and recently did some upgrades, so we are hoping that problems are kept to a minimum. We do have other measures we will take if things look like they are starting to peak out.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
