It's happening again. Voters are now getting mail from the Voter Participation Center (VPC). "Who you vote for is private, but whether or not you vote is public record," it states in bold type. It also includes the voting history of a few neighbors. Though the names are omitted, the street addresses are listed.
According to Wikipedia, Voter Participation Center is actually Women's Voices Women Vote (WVWV), founded by Democratic political activist Page Gardner. In 2008, this group was fined $100,000 when it sent misleading information to African American voters in North Carolina. It was thought by some to be an effort to suppress the black vote in the race between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
These letters are being sent elsewhere in the country, and are stirring up controversy in Memphis and Minneapolis, Kansas, Iowa, Wisconsin and New York.
VPC purports to be a "nonprofit," but is listed by the Center for Responsive Politics as a "liberal" group that targets Republicans.
