“In Missouri, spokesman Justin Hamilton said Obama’s campaign had agreements with cab companies across the state to provide Election Day rides to the polls for any voter who wanted one.

He said the callers would not be asked how they intended to vote. “

Will they really not ask the preferences of the caller? Will anyone who seems to be voting for McCain be left waiting until it is to late to get to the polls before a cab shows up?

Investigators in the state need to find out. Call the number and see if they are asked about voting preference. See if a cab shows up in a timely fashion if they prefer McCain.
