NEW LEGAL THEORY OF DISFRANCHISEMENT? Little Green Footballs has found a Fox News story about some Georgia voters who are advancing the novel legal theory that Representative Cynthia McKinney lost the Democratic primary thanks to "malicious crossover votes." It's harder and harder for me to have any confidence in the Democrats, now I have to worry that a candidate I might have preferred in the Democratic primary (In Illinois, crossover voting is permitted as voters may request the ballot of any party holding a primary election) being removed from the ballot owing to a lawsuit against the primary, that in addition to a Democratic candidate who is losing requesting a substitute off the bench.
