Another Thing To Ponder

Tell me what exactly this would accomplish?
"We are going to have several meetings; we are going to have thousands and thousands of people sign petitions. . . . We will register people to vote and send thousands of e-mails to legislators," said Gustavo Torres, executive director of Casa de Maryland in Silver Spring.
You know, I'd really hate to break this to Mr. Torres, but I'm afraid I have to.

You see, you have to be a citizen in this country, whether by birth or naturalization, to vote here. (Link with PDF warning.) And seeing as how a large plurality of his target audience probably hasn't reached that penultimate step yet, what use is a voter registration drive? Unless, however, he's suggesting that they stack the voter rolls with ineligible voters. In that case, this article would be Exhibit #1 in his trial for election fraud.
