Corruption, fraud, and intimidation by the Dem political machine.
The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting:
Romney war room reports minority (R) inspectors kicked out of some polling places in Phila. GOP lawyers ready. More details TK, #inkyvote
These Inspectors are election officials – again, court appointed — and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats) .
This has happened at the following locations:
Ward 32, Div 13Ward 43, Div 14Ward 56, Div 1Ward 56, Div 22Ward 32, Div 28Ward 32, Div 28Ward 12, Div 17Ward 39, Div 1Ward 24, Div 9Ward 18, Div 25Ward 43, Div 14Ward 29, Div 18Ward 65, Div 19Ward 20, Div 1Ward 6, Div 11
A judge has ordered reinstatement of GOP inspectors:
A Pennsylvania judge is issuing an order to reinstate Republican election officials across Philadelphia who allegedly were ejected or refused entry by on-site Democratic voting chief judges, GOP officials tell Fox News.
One Republican official claimed that “just under 70” Republican election officials were blocked from Philadelphia polling sites Tuesday morning by Democrats on site. One of them, the official claimed, “was shoved out of the polling place.”
“For this many inspectors to be ejected from polling places is rare, even for Philadelphia,” the official told FoxNews.com.
They’re back, no thanks to Attorney General Eric Holder. Members of the New Black Panther Party are again stalking the polls in Philadelphia.
In 2009, the Department of Justice sought a permanent nationwide injunction against the New Black Panther Party appearing at the polls. The Eric Holder Justice Department gutted the case in May 2009.
Had the political appointees at Holder’s Justice Department sought the relief requested by Michael Mukasey’s Justice Department, this wouldn’t be happening. Attorney General Michael Mukasey’s DOJ filed a complaint that sought a permanent injunction against King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson from appearing in front of a poll in New Black Panther attire nationwide.
Instead, Eric Holder gave them a slap on the wrist. Here is the operative language from the watered down injunction:
“Defendant Minster King Samir Shabazz is enjoined from displaying a weapon within 100 feet of any open polling location on any election day in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, or from otherwise engaging in coercing, threatening, or intimidating behavior in violation of Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1973i(b).”
So Shabazz can display a weapon 101 feet away from a poll. Jerry Jackson, the tall New Black Panther who helped block the polls with Shabazz was dismissed from the case. Worse, the paltry injunction expires next week.
