In this episode, Democrats promise free pizza and campaign t-shirts to CSU students as the pass by the polling place. The catch? You have to go in and vote first before you can receive your goodies. After a complaint was issued about the illegal activity, the Colorado Democratic Party issued this ludicrous statement:
“This is a hypocritical charge … the party that has spent over half a million dollars on a firm accused of voter fraud across the country should join us in encouraging people to vote instead of making frivolous complaints,”
Frivolous!? They don't condemn or apologize for the activity. They justify it by pointing to an accusation of wrongdoing by the GOP. Not a fact. An unproven and baseless accusation. Remember, as the Dems keep reminding us - It's the 'seriousness of the charge, not the nature of the evidence' which allows them to justify their 'by any means necessary' tactic of subverting election laws and democracy.
Rest assured, if this were the campus Republican's doing this, there would be holy hell to pay, Obama would work this into his campaign speech, and the Democrat Party would be apoplectic.
Instead we get the line: We should be proud of these young people for showing an interest in the democratic process.
State GOP Files Complaint Against Obama Campaigners At CSU

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – Early voting only got under way on Monday and already a complaint has been filed.
Colorado Republicans say Democrats wrongly offered Colorado State University students free pizza and T-shirts in exchange for voting.
Colorado state law says campaigners have to be 100 feet from a polling place, but there is some grey area, particularly when a polling place is inside a large public building like CSU’s Lory Student Center.
