"No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions." --Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1804.

Voter registration scam

Hadn’t seen anything about this before. But it should be noted, in part because if it’s cropped up in Idaho, it very well could in Oregon and Washington too. Meet the latest phishing scam (alert courtesy of the Idaho Secretary of State’s web site):

Fraud Alert: Our office has been alerted that some people have received telephone calls offering to register them to vote over the telephone. The caller requests personal information, including your social security number. Idaho does not allow voter registration by telephone. These are not legitimate phone calls. Do not provide any personal information to these callers.
