Important tactical tip for would-be accusers of election fraud: when you send out your press release, proof-read it first. It helps one avoid elementary errors, such as making it obvious that you had prepared your accusation before the polls even opened, let alone closed*.
“Reports that the Coakley campaign is making reckless accusations regarding the integrity of today’s election is a reminder that they are a desperate campaign. In fact, news reports point out that today’s accusation was a pre-dated, in the bag political attack. Furthermore, Senator John Kerry accused Brown supporters of intimidation and bullying — a tactic taken directly from his own 2004 playbook. The reality is that Massachusetts voters will determine the outcome of this election despite political attacks leveled by Martha Coakley and national Democrats.” — Daniel B. Winslow, Counsel for the Scott Brown for U.S. Senate Campaign
The remarkably cool thing here, of course, is that the Scott Brown campaign has the savvy to link to Hot Air for the screenshot.
