Attack of the Vote Thieves in Portland?

My friend said that a guy in a red poncho knocked on her door yesterday and asked if she wanted him to turn in her ballot for her.
My friend said that a guy in a red poncho knocked on her door yesterday and asked if she wanted him to turn in her ballot for her. He also was soliciting money for "the truth". This was near St Vincent's hospital (Washington county?). She said Fuck, no and later wondered if her place had been targeted because of the progressive yard signs.

That group (funded, directly, by the GOP) that was trashing Dem voter registrations in Las Vegas is now here as well, since we are already done with the registration process, I wonder what they are up to . . .

Interesting note: you can perform a citizens arrest on anyone that tries to interfere with the voting system in Oregon, provided YOU witness it. Then you must either hand them off to a cop, or drag them in front of a judge. If they resist, you are allowed to use all reasonable force to secure the arrest (don't go overboard, but no need to be TOO gentle with vote-trashers).
