Around the country, there have been disturbing reports of employers sending vaguely, and sometimes not-so-vaguely, threatening messages to employees about how they should vote in the upcoming presidential election. Take, for example, the email that Mike White, chairman and owner of Milwaukee-based Rite-Hite, sent to his employees a few days ago:

Stumping across the industrial Midwest as early voting begins, Mitt Romney is still misleading voters about the auto industry. At a rally near a GM plant in Defiance, Ohio, on Thursday evening, the Republican nominee stooped to repeating a rumor that had appeared on several right-wing blogs.
“I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep— now owned by the Italians—is thinking of moving all production to China,” he told the crowd.
Yet there was simply no basis for Romney’s claim, beyond a wildly misinterpreted Bloomberg News article about Chrysler’s plans to open factories in China to make Jeeps for sale in the Chinese market. A Chrysler spokesman mocked the rumor and offered a firm assurance: “Let’s set the record straight. Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China.” Indeed, Romney had the facts exactly reversed, because Chrysler is planning to add 1,100 new jobs in a third shift at its Jeep Cherokee plant in Detroit next week, according to Motor Trend magazine.
The Romney campaign declined comment on the candidate’s ridiculous assertion, but nobody should be surprised to hear him talking down the automobile industry’s recovery. He hopes to win over working-class voters in crucial Ohio by sowing confusion about the Obama administration’s auto rescue — and his own opposition to the Obama plan. That is precisely what he did during the final debate with President Obama, who derided his attempt to “airbrush” his **noallow** against the bailout.

K manera de kerer ganar a fuerzas! Rogando y pidiendo hasta a L@s k menos tienen!!
You’ve seen the polls. This whole campaign could come down to a few thousand votes in Florida or Ohio.
The Republicans and their Super PACs think they can "deliver a knockout blow" to our chances by burying us with an avalanche of deceptive ads in the final 10 days. We can fight their attacks and get the facts out to voters – but we have to close this spending gap immediately.
Tonight, we hit the final week ad buy deadline. If we don’t have the funds to compete over the next week, a Democratic majority for President Obama could be out of reach.

We’re almost out of time -- we have to raise $450,000 by tonight's deadline to get ads on the air and contact voters on the ground.
If we want to win, we can’t afford to leave one vote on the table.
