says many are puzzled that Democrats persist in ramming unpopular
and destructive legislation down our collective throats with no apparent
concern for their plummeting poll numbers. A widespread belief is
that the Democrats are committing political suicide and will be swept
from one or both houses of Congress with unprecedented electoral losses
next November. But since Democrat politicians rarely do things
that will not ultimately benefit themselves, this column
asked two weeks ago, "What do they know that we don't?"
may have found out.
It's called universal voter registration. The Wall Street
Journal's John Fund described the Democrat plan recently at a David
Horowitz Freedom Center forum. Watch the video here.
In January, Chuck Schumer and Barney Frank
will propose universal voter registration. What is universal

Fund anticipates that Congress will attempt to ram
this legislation through, as with the health care bill. What a surprise!
Fund covers the vote issue at greater length in his

Administration Threatens to Undermine Our Elections."

wants to know if the woman in the video is
Isabel Melendez, the community activist who came close to becoming
the state's first elected Latino mayor when she ran for the Lawrence
post in 2001?
Melendez is the head of Voters in Action, a
nonprofit group -- she appears to be the only member of the group -- and
has been "working to register Latino voters."
The video show her carrying around blank absentee ballots in Spanish
today. She explains how she’s telling people to mark Martha
Giovanna Negretti, executive director of
¿Oíste?, a nonprofit that seeks to
elect Latino candidates in Massachusetts, said Melendez remains an
important community activist and trailblazer in Lawrence.
Isabel Melendez is going to go to jail
