The Huffington Post has reported on one of the most troubling Get Out the Vote efforts we've heard in a long time. In Pima County, Arizona, the Republican party is holding a raffle to fund its GOTV efforts. Tickets are just $10 each, and the winner will be drawn when all 125 tickets are sold.

The prize? A Glock pistol, a more powerful version of the gun that killed 6 people and injured 19 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), in January.

The raffle is prominently featured in the Republican party newsletter eTracks.  “Get yourself a new Glock 23 .40 cal handgun for just 10 bucks — if your name is drawn. That’s right, for just 10 dollars this gun could be yours.”

In case that’s not sufficiently enticing, they’re including three 12-round magazines, adjustable grips, and a case.
