In related news: Mitt Romney causes old ladies to slip and fall on the way to the polls:
Mr. Romney is relying on a sophisticated get out the vote operation that featured laundry baskets of cell phones in his Manchester headquarters, 100,000 calls made on Monday alone, along with door-to-door visits to 8,000 homes that day.
One of his supporters was Rosetta Frederick, 73, who took advantage of the nice weather to walk to the polls three blocks from her home even though she is disabled and her ride did not show up.
“It’s a nice day,” she said. “but I fell on an icy patch, and I couldn’t get up. It was 10 minutes before someone came along and helped me.” [nyt]
