This is what happens when your friends in the White House and DOJ refuse to prosecute you for voter intimidation.
PHILADELPHIA – Fox 29 News ran into a New Black Panther Party member outside as the same Philadelphia polling place where voter intimidation was reported two years ago. He was handing out a sample ballot for the Democrats.
Slideshow: Man With Panther Badge At The Polls
The man was seen outside the polling place in North Philadelphia was wearing a pin that indicated his party affiliation, along with a black hat, sunglasses and leather coat.
We spoke with the man briefly and asked him why he was standing in front of the poll doors. His response was, “no comment.”
We then asked him if he was at the polls representing the New Black Panther Party and if his panther label button was a symbol of the party. We received no answer.
A check with Philadelphia election officials revealed no voter intimidation reports at the polling location related to the man.
But we were able to obtain one of the sample ballots the man was handing out to voters. It was a sample Democratic ticket with Joe Sestak, Dan Onorato, Bob Brady and Curtis Thomas on the ballot.
In footage obtained by Fox News back in 2008, two members of the New Black Panther Party stood outside the same polling place shaking a Billy club and allegedly intimidating voters.
The case was ultimately dropped by the Department of Justice after President Obama’s administration came into power, although controversy surrounding the incident’s handling has persisted.
Just last month Attorney General Eric Holder was defending the Justice Department’s performance on the matter, saying the top career person in the civil rights division made the decision to seek an injunction against one person.
This story was buried by the MSM. The new version of the 60’s Black Panthers seems unfazed by the controversy surrounding its thuggery. Their tactic didn’t work so well this time, as Philadelphia voters overwhelmingly voted Republican. Afterward, they headed back to their clubhouse and bitched about how “whitey” ruined the election, while they raised clenched fists and shouted troof ta powa!
