Better Luck In 2012 : WEEI’s Voter Suppression Proves Unsuccessful

Posted in politics, Sports Radio at 6:49 pm by

Given the headlines alleging all sorts of nefarious attempts to suppress votes on Tuesday (including, it should be stressed, at least one prominent claim of intimidation against McCain supporters), what are we to make of a report in the Boston Herald that WEEI’s John Dennis and Gerry Callahan “told listeners Tuesday that the election had been postponed and Democrats should cast their votes tomorrow”?

While I doubt many of the duo’s listeners took the advice to heart, a staffer for Massachusetts’ Secretary Of State found it troubling enough to issue a warning to the radio station.   I’d like to think I’d have presumed it was a gag, but considering one of the guys responsible might never fully live down the Metco Gorilla flap, this was a curious prank to play, even if there was no malicious intent.

    Has any Democrat even fallen for the “you really vote on Wednesday” shit ever?

    That’s almost like saying to someone “Your shoe is untied” to someone who’s wearing Velcro Sneakers.
