Obama's Prepping Lawyers for Election

Republicans have been trying to prevent certain kinds of people from voting by making it more difficult for legitimate voters to vote. It looks as though we should prepare ourselves for the possibility that this election could be the dirtiest of all time.
President Barack Obama's campaign has recruited a legion of lawyers to be on standby for this year's election as legal disputes surrounding the voting process escalate.

Thousands of attorneys and support staffers have agreed to aid in the effort, providing a mass of legal support that appears to be unrivaled by Republicans or precedent. Obama's campaign says it is particularly concerned about the implementation of new voter ID laws across the country, the possibility of anti-fraud activists challenging legitimate voters and the handling of voter registrations in the most competitive states.

As a democrat in Pennsylvania put it:
If you have to stop people voting to win elections, your ideas suck.”
