Voter suppression

While we're slightly troubled by the idea that someone would be gullible enough to fall for a trick this transparent, we feel obligated to pass along the alert, sent to us by Katie Diamond of the League of Young Voters: 

"For those who don't know, there are text messages and facebook messages and status updates telling people that 'due to heavy turnout, Obama voters (or in some texts/updates, Democrats and Independents) should vote on Wednesday.'

Please activate your networks to push back on these messages. Voting ends today. Stick it out, stay in line, etc." 

Did anyone get a txt like this? If so, I'd love to hear about it.
