Question: "Is State Board of Elections Non-Partisan Any Longer?"

An alarming question has been raised by Southside Conservative over at the Contemporary Conservative.

In his post, "Is State Board of Elections Non-Partisan Any Longer," SC comments:
Documents recently obtained through a FOIA request made to the State Board of Elections (SBE) are disturbing in their revelation of the involvement by both the Governor's Chief of Staff and an attorney representing the Obama campaign in a policy shift regarding student voter registration.
Posting in Part 1 of what promises to be more information on the way, SC raises concerns of changes at registrars' offices statewide (and possibly nationwide?) in student registrations for the 2008 presidential campaign ... changes that are contrary to normal operating policy but have been described as "clarifications."

SC ends with this:
The next post in this series will walk you through what has been going on behind the scenes the last few months. It's not pretty and not at all what we have come to expect in the Commonwealth.
Stay tuned....
