As OTL, S! has previously reported, the US Attorney firings were about voter suppression. Those US Attorneys who had declined to prosecute voter “fraud” cases were fired. The Republicans under Rove have made repeated attempts to keep voters away from the polls by intimidation, by imposing roadblocks, financial disincentives, publishing incorrect voting schedules and locations, and obstructing voters at the polls. There is no reason to believe that effort is not continuing.
