Maine GOP Chair Says Blacks Came To Rural Towns To Vote

Maine Republican party chairman Charlie Webster told WSCH-TV that "hundreds" of black voters cast ballots in rural areas of the state.

Said Webster: "In some parts of rural Maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted on Election Day. Everybody has the right to vote, but nobody in town knows anybody that's black -- how did that happen? I don't know. We're going to find out."

Webster elaborated on his charges to the Portland Press-Herald: "I'm not talking about 15 or 20. I'm talking hundreds."
