Here's Michael Moore's response to the underwear-and-ramen-noodle-gate allegations, from the Detroit Free Press:
Filmmaker Michael Moore responded Wednesday to the Michigan Republican Party's request that he be prosecuted for offering underwear and food to college students in exchange for their promise to vote.
"It's ironic that Republicans have no problem with allowing assault weapons out on our streets, yet they don't want to put clean underwear in the hands of our slacker youth," Moore said in a statement. "The Republicans seem more interested in locking me up for trying to encourage people to participate in our democracy than locking up Bin Laden for his attacks on our democracy."
Moore said Republicans missed the "satire" of his giving underwear and food to get young people to vote.
