Dem: allege voter intimidation without evidence

The Anchoress reminds us of all the vote fraud activities of the Democrats. I was surprised I didn't remember this one from 2004:
A 66-page mobilization plan to be issued by the Kerry/Edwards campaign and the Democratic National Committee states: “If no signs of intimidation techniques have emerged yet, launch a ‘pre-emptive strike.’”

Yeah, right. Note that neither you nor the Anchoress bother to quote enough of the document to make any sense of it. And, duh, Drudge's link to the .pdf is dead. Yeah, a bunch of wingnuts were shouting about it but there's no pre-emptive there there.

The "pre-emptive strikes" mentioned in the plan are just straightfoward press releases about voter fraud in general, hardly underhanded or misleading or even hardball politics. Here's the context:

* Issue a press release

i. Reviewing Republican tactic [sic] issued in the past in your area or state

ii. Quoting party/minority/civil rights leadership as denouncing tactics that discourage people from voting

* Prime minority leadership to discuss the issue in the media; provide talking points

* Place stories in which minority leadership expresses concern about the threat of intimidation tactics

* Warn local newspapers not to accept advertising that is not properly disclaimed or that contains false warnings about voting requirements and/or about what will happen at the polls.
