A sure sign of desperation

Tom Daschle sues Thune and the GOP in federal court.

Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle sued his opponent, John Thune, and the GOP in federal court tonight, accusing Republicans of intimidating Native American

voters in Tuesday's election.

In a complaint filed late this afternoon and obtained by the Argus Leader, Daschle asked U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence Piersol to keep 200 Republican monitors out of polling places across South Dakota tomorrow.

"The Daschle-Thune election should be a fair one," the lawsuit reads. "The conduct of Republican Thune supporters will make it an unfair one, unless restrained by this court."

Daschle is depending on heavy turnout from Native American voters, who overwhelmingly support him over Thune, to win what is expected to be an extremely close election.

Sounds like the GOP in South Dakota found out where the Dems plan on doing their election stealing, a la 2002.
