THIS JUST GOES TO FURTHER ILLUSTRATE THE FREEBEE MENTALITY OF THE LOCALS. YOU HAVE TO OFFER THEM SOMETHING FREE TO GET THEM TO REGISTER TO VOTE AND THEN HAVE THE NERVE TO CRY ABOUT VOTER I.D. REQUIREMENTS. I'D JUST AS SOON SEE ALBANY HIT ROCK BOTTOM SO THAT THE ONLY PLACE LEFT TO GO WOULD BE UP.

Get a video of Main Street, Port-au-Prince, Haiti. That's going to be Albany pretty soon.

Why can't they just hold a voter registration drive without the freebies?

Just another racist move to get more black votes. If both presidential candidates were white, this event would not be happening.

Straight from the video: "I'm gone git me some money!" What kind of money? "Obama money!!"

Talk about buying potential voters! Likely, some of these will wind up as absentee voters once the Election Office is told of the numbers needed by the candidate of choice. This doesn't sound legal if assistance is only provided if one registers. Regardless, the whole effort is totally unethical but then we are dealing with "ethics lackers" to start with.

Isn't this in Lorenzo's hood?

isn't this buying votes? and isn't it against the LAW? but since this is a democrat run city, NO one IS GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

There should be an injunction on this happening. You cannot give away valuable stuff to get folks to vote or get ready to vote. Report them to the FBI. They will investigate and I would hate to cross them.

Yes, giving away anything to induce another to register or to vote is a fellony. Certain people however consider themselves above the law, interpreting it to pertain only when and how it promotes their own agenda, concluding that it is only a dismissable tecnicallity, merely incidential to a self-determined civil right to do as they themselve see fit. They make mercenary the poor, the disinfranchised, the children, etc to cloak political self interest and to provide justification for not being held accountable under the law. The right to vote is available to all qualified to do so, and sould be promoted and protected, none eligible excluded. But in principle; to aspire to do the right and noble thing but to do it by wrong devices is never an acceptible foundation for government. No politician is worth a vote lest he first be found honest, ethical, moral in character, whose leadership is one of consistent integrety. One who campaigns dishonestly will rule the same way.
