Clear Channel Outdoor Removes Voter Fraud Billboards
Clear Channel Outdoor is taking down billboards that advocacy groups claim tried to suppress voter turnout in the Midwest, reports CNN Money. Located in minority neighborhoods in the swing states of Ohio and Wisconsin, the billboards warned that voter fraud is a felony punishable by jail time. Activists say they were placed to intimidate potential voters into staying home. A Clear Channel Outdoor spokesman said the "billboards violate our policy of not accepting anonymous political ads" and were removed.
