Some NEW evidence has surfaced to support the BBC's 2004 article on voter caging in Florida practice where black voters are targeted with mailings intended to keep them away from the polls. Refuting the claim that caging wasn't discussed at pre-election meetings by county election officials.
Internal city memos show the issue of Republican "vote caging" efforts in Jacksonville's African-American neighborhoods was discussed in the weeks before the 2004 election, contradicting recent claims by former Duval County Republican leader Mike Hightower - the Bush-Cheney campaign's local chairman at the time."Caging" is a longtime voter suppression practice by which political parties collect undeliverable or unreturned mail and use it to develop "challenge lists" on Election Day.
