MARYLAND GOP VOTER GUIDE BAMBOOZLE… The GOP is handing out blatantly misleading campaign literature in heavily African American Prince George’s County, Maryland. It comes in the form of a pamphlet urging voters to support the two “Democrats” at the top of the ticket, Bob Ehrlich and Michael Steele (both, of course, are Republicans). Our reporter in PG County, Jesse Singal, got his hands on one of the pamphlets. It was given to him by a homeless guy from Philly bussed in by the GOP. Check out Jesse’s report here.

Lot’s of other terrific on-the-ground reporting over at Showdown ’06, including: high voter turnout reports from Virginia and New Jersey, scrutiny of voting machines in Tennessee, and GOP shenanigans–but a glum-looking Charlie Bass–in New Hampshire.
