(Florida 2000)2

If you thought Florida's elections in 2000 were bad, take a look at what happened in Tennessee [via NEWSROOM-L]:

Black voters were told to get behind the white voters....

Black voters were told to remove NAACP stickers from their cars or leave the polling place without voting.

Black voters were intimidated by police standing around polling places....

This issue has received virtually no coverage outside the black press, but it hasn�t been kept secret. The Tennessee Voter Empowerment Team met at the Tennessee NAACP Conference of Branches on Nov. 17 and released their findings both as a press release and to the state. There is massive evidence that thousands — perhaps even tens of thousands — of people were disenfranchised, the vast majority of whom were black, and there have been no investigations.
