Romney Uses Campaign Bus to Provide Supplies to Storm Ravaged Areas, Obama Asks People to Work Phone Banks
A tale of two campaigns…
Via The Hill:
Mitt Romney’s campaign has sent its bus to collect and distribute donated supplies for those in the path of Hurricane Sandy, aides said Monday.
Romney was originally slated to campaign over the weekend in Virginia, but canceled plans there and joined running mate Paul Ryan in Ohio. Curt Cashour, Romney’s Virginia communications director, tweeted Monday that the campaign bus will instead be used to transport basic supplies to local storm-relief centers.
The Obama campaign sent out emails Sunday encouraging its volunteers to “phonebank” from Annapolis, Maryland on Monday at 5:30 PM.
The worst part of Hurricane Sandy is supposed to be hitting the region around that time.
From the email a tipster sent in:

Subject: Hey Jennifer, pitch in for Virginia this Monday
This past week, President Obama visited eight states in two days on his America Forward! tour. He hardly slept, he talked himself hoarse, and he was constantly on the move.
He knows, just like you and I do, that what matters most in the last days of this election is what we do on the ground: The voters we talk to. The issues we discuss. Every step we take to help get people to the polls for President Obama and other Democrats.
Folks in Annapolis are getting together on Monday to make some phone calls into Virginia.
Can you make it?
What: Phone bank in Annapolis

Annapolis, MD 21401

Remember when Eric Holder dismissed video evidence of how easy it was to perpetrate voter fraud by calling it ‘manufactured’?
A Maryland Democratic candidate quit her congressional race Monday after her own party told state officials that she had committed fraud by voting in both Maryland and Florida in recent elections.
Wendy Rosen, a small-business owner running against freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R) in the Eastern Shore-based 1st Congressional District, released a statement saying that “with great regret, and much sorrow” she was resigning from the contest.
“The Maryland Democratic Party has discovered that Ms. Rosen has been registered to vote in both Florida and Maryland since at least 2006; that she in fact voted in the 2006 general election both in Florida and Maryland; and that she voted in the presidential preference primaries held in both Florida and Maryland in 2008,” wrote Yvette Lewis, the state party chair. “This information is based on an examination of the voter files from both states. We believe that this is a clear violation of Maryland law and urge the appropriate office to conduct a full investigation.”
Bryan Preston of PJ Media writes:
Democrats love to claim that voter fraud does not exist. That voter ID is not necessary. That voter ID is, in fact, voter suppression.
But suddenly Democrats have to admit that voter fraud exists. That’s really going to dent the narrative.
Their narrative has been more than dented, it’s non-existent. Voter fraud is real, it is prevalent, and it is a consistent Democrat tactic in elections.
