The chairman of the Macomb County (Michigan) Republican Party wants to deny people the right to vote if they are homeless due to foreclosure. The move would disproportionately affect African-American voters, as "more than 60 percent of all sub-prime loans -- the most likely kind of loan to go into default -- were made to African-Americans in Michigan."

The McCain headquarters in Michigan is actually located inside the offices of Trott and Trott, a law firm specializing in mortgage foreclosure. This guy, Trott, has -- big surprise! -- raised tons of money for McCain.
