Dear Friend,

It's the most outrageous attack on voting rights we've ever seen--if you live in Michigan and you're in danger of losing your home to foreclosure, Republicans will try and take away your right to vote. It's voter-suppression at its worst--taking advantage of hard times for political gain and kicking people while they're down.

McCain's response? Silence. Like Bush in 2000 and 2004, he's trying to keep a safe distance from these tactics, while benefiting from them. McCain could end this with a phone call. But he won't.

Similar tactics are being used across the country, but the McCain campaign simply sits in the background, quietly benefiting from voter suppression. The Obama campaign is fighting against this plan in the courts, but they need our help to expose these dishonorable tactics and make this a national story.
