ACORN Ad: Don't Let McCain Take Away Your Voting Rights

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) has released a 30-second ad accusing "John McCain and the Republicans" of trying to keep people from voting. The ad highlights voter suppression from 1960 to 2000 and asks viewers to call McCain and tell him, "Not this time."

At a press conference, ACORN Executive Director Steve Kest specifically called on McCain to "join us in trying to make it easier for voters to exercise their rights, by calling for measures such as extending early voting hours, to facilitate the greatest possible participation in this historic election."
