    Interesting. The so-called GRAMA advocacy group demands that we make our names, addresses, phone numbers and full birth dates (month, day, year) public if we want to vote. If we refuse, then we are denied our right to vote. Can anyone say “voter suppression?”

    And this same group cheers when the Lt. Governor sells the personal information of 1.5 million voters for $1,050 to anyone willing to pay for it. (Ever wonder how you got on those carefully targeted junk mail lists?)

    Further, the Utah Media Coalition actually facilitates senior scams because once someone has the voter list, he can sort it by age. This gives him a huge senior mail and telephone scam list.

    So the fact is that the Utah Media Coalition proudly denies the right to vote to all those who refuse to make their birth dates public and facilitates the scamming of senior citizens who just want to exercise their right to vote.

    When you think about it, this advocacy group would be more appropriately called either the “Voter suppression advocacy group” or the “Throw GRANDMA under the bus advocacy group”
