Here's a visual aid that no-one else seems to have put together.
I took a map of the United States, then overlaid the word "Purge" over those states affected by the attorneygate scandal. The list includes the more recent additions in New Hampshire, Minnesota and Missouri. It does not include the names on the still-secret list reported by the Washington Post.
I then indicated which states (in 2004 terms) were considered blue states, red states, and "purple" states -- that is, battleground states.
Notice a pattern? Show this map to anyone who denies that the prosecutors were being forced to suppress Democratic votes in the battleground states.
(Anyone may use this graphic. A link back to Cannonfire would be nice, but I don't insist.)
