Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign blasted out an e-mail to reporters yesterday touting his recent endorsement by freshman Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AR). Griffin, of course, rose to national prominence after President Bush appointed him to replace one of the seven United States Attorneys dismissed as part of the Bush Administration’s broader effort to politicize the Justice Department. Prior to accepting this questionable appointment, Griffin spearheaded a “voter caging” scheme that attempted to kick numerous African-American military servicemembers off the voter rolls in order to prevent them from voting for Democrats.
