GOP Voter Suppression Watch -- New Mexico

Zachary Roth, whose report on GOP voter suppression in Indiana I linked to Wednesday, has a new article up describing another form of Republican ugliness in New Mexico.

One part is familiar: several Republicans accuse ACORN of "voter fraud," the story is investigated, the allegations are once again proven false. There's a new wrinkle, though: apparently, the GOP has employed a private investigator to visit minority voters at their homes, where among other things, he threatens them with visits from La Migra, demands to see their ID, and lies to them about their eligibility to vote.
