What a bunch of clumsy amateurs

WashBlog reports on the latest chapter in the GOP's voter registration challenges:
As I reported, at Thursday’s meeting the GOP used screenshots of Google searches as proof of new residences of the challenged voters (as pointed out here, the law clearly states that someone challenging a voter's right to vote must have the voter's new address – Sotelo and the GOP skipped this step when filing the challenges initially, and is now trying to make up for it after the fact). Apparently they read my post, and decided that a Google search isn’t enough to reach the burden of proof – but instead of actually doing their due diligence (which is the least someone can ask if their vote is being taken from them), they decided instead to change search engines. Brilliant!
An excellent read - follow the link to catch the whole thing.
