Voter Protection In VA

VA voters received a phony flier stating that, per an emergency session of the VA General Assembly, the GOP would vote on Nov. 4th and Dems, Nov. 5th, due to high expected voter turnout. Some friends have made the comment that this should carry a stiff sentence. On the one hand, there is no serious injury to these persons. On the other, these people are intentionally preventing people from exercising one of their explicit constitutional right and preventing a key aspect of their participation in a democracy. Now that does sound pretty serious.

The picture I saw looked like it was on official letterhead (or a reasonable facsimile thereof). Faking THAT is inherently the crime (IMO) - the rest of it is a very very tasteless joke, and I wouldn't mind someone going to jail over this.
