Voter Protection Lines May Be Jammed. Guess Who's to Blame?

Earlier this morning we reminded you of the outlet you have for voter outrage should you notice anything fishy as you engage in your civic duty. The phone number is 1-866-OUR-VOTE. The Dems also have a voter protection phone number 1-888-DEM-VOTE, where voters can call to report fraudulent activity as well as get advice on new machines, but you probably won't be able to get through. Today, conservative radio host Laura Ingraham told her listeners to bombard the lines.

Tell me if you think I'm crazy. This is what I'm thinking. I think we all need to call 1-888-DEM-VOTE all at the same time.

Fair play, huh?

And Ingraham didn't just let her callers handle the phones. You can listen to Ingraham here.
