NAACP Makes Voting Fraud Easier For N Orleans

But still not easy enough to please the race baiting NAACP.

From the DNC's house organ, the Washington Post:

NAACP President, Bruce S. Gordon

Election Plan for New Orleans Approved

The Justice Department approved plans yesterday for the first New Orleans election since Hurricane Katrina, despite objections from civil rights groups who said the voting arrangements do not adequately accommodate the city's displaced black voters.

The storm has tilted the racial balance of city residents in favor of whites, many believe, and controversy has surrounded the question of what kind of accommodations should be made to allow the tens of thousands of black evacuees to vote from outside the state.

The state plan for the election calls for sending mass mailings to evacuees, easing restrictions on absentee ballots, and setting up satellite polling stations around Louisiana. But it stops short of arranging for balloting in other states such as Texas, Mississippi and Georgia, where many evacuees are dispersed…

NAACP President Bruce S. Gordon said in a statement that the organization is "deeply disappointed" with the Justice Department's decision…

Some consultants say the circumstances will favor white candidates and deliver the first white mayor since 1978. Others say displaced black voters will take the extra steps to cast their ballots…

Noting that several white candidates are running, Ronald P. Nabonne, a political consultant, said: "Any candidate who thinks the voting patterns will be determined by who is living in the city will be in for a big surprise."

Right. The people actually living in New Orleans shouldn't be the only ones to vote. We can't have that.

I guess the pols are insisting on enforcing the old adage: Once you go black, you never go back.
