Black Voters Invade Maine!

UPDATE:  TPM has now talked to this fine fella.   He defends himself by saying he plays b-ball with a black guy.

Earlier: You'd think the results of the election would humble, or at least silence (for awhile) the many racists in the Republican party but, alas, they can't help himself.  Check this out, posted late last night at Portland, Maine, newspaper site.  I suspect the New Black Panthers.
Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster is once again alleging possible voting irregularities, this time claiming that groups of unknown black people showed up in some rural towns to vote on Election Day. Webster made the claim in a wide-ranging, post-election interview this week with Don Carrigan of WCSH-TV.
"In some parts of rural Maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted on Election Day," he said. "Everybody has a right to vote, but nobody in (these) towns knows anyone who's black. How did that happen? I don't know. We're going to find out."
When Carrigan pressed Webster on where it happened, Webster provided no specifics or proof of his claims, but said the party would investigate further...

"I'm not talking about 15 or 20. I'm talking hundreds," he said Wednesday. "I'm not politically correct and maybe I shouldn't have said these voters were black, but anyone who suggests I have a bias toward any race or group, frankly, that's sleazy." Webster said he has identified five "pockets" of the state where he has concerns about voting irregularities...
Megan Sanborn, spokeswoman for Secretary of State Charlie Summers, said Summers was shocked when he watched the video of the interview on WCSH.  "Our office has not heard any complaints about Election Day," Sanborn said. "Secretary Summers jealously guards the right of everyone to vote and feels that they should."
