The Soldier’s Vote Suppressed? – Has Anyone Heard of this?

I received the story below from very conservative father. If it’s true, it is an outrage. But when it comes to email from sources I don’t know showing up in my inbox, I’m skeptical, so my blood pressure isn’t up at the moment.

I haven’t heard of this before, and why would this story have received attention before the day before the election. My suspicion is that this may be a totally made up internet rumour circulated on email, or at best Fox overblowing a story. The intent in either case would be to turn out more angery Republicans.

If any one is familiar with this story and if there’s anything to it, I’d like to hear.

UPDATE:

Fox has reported this at least as long ago as the summer, but it still seems to me to be a story coming from right wingers with an ax to grind.

Today, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly reports that the OBAMA Dept of Justice under Eric holder, has allowed a deadline for the military men and women overseas to receive their absentee ballots and cast their votes …………….to expire.
They had more than 6 months to approve the sending of the ballots.
BUT THEY DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AND LET THE DEADLINE COME !!!!!

This will stop 2,800,000 Military votes from being cast in the November election.
Nearly all of our Freedom Fighters are known to be anti-OBAMA.

“David Broder Calls for War With Iran to Boost the Economy”

What a horrible idea.  There are better ways to spend money to stimulate the economy.  The only reason to do this is because the right might support it.  That’s not enough of a reason.
