A smoking gun found on GOP voter suppression

A former GOP State Chair has admitted that the Republican Party has engaged in voter suppression tactics:
On voter suppression, Greer said he had just completed a December 2009 meeting with party general counsel Jason Gonzalez, political consultant Jim Rimes and Eric Eikenberg, Crist's chief of staff, when questions arose about fundraising.

"I was upset because the political consultants and staff were talking about voter suppression and keeping blacks from voting. It had been one of those days,'' he said.

Rimes said he recalls no discussion of suppressing votes at any meeting. Eikenberg did not return phone calls.
