A Repeat of 2004 Philly Voter Chaos, Fraud

GOP Election Board members have been tossed out of polling stations in at least half a dozen polling stations in Philadelphia because of their party status.

A Pennsylvania judge previously ruled that court-appointed poll watchers could be NOT removed from their boards by an on-site election judge, but that is exactly what is happening, according to sources on the ground.

It is the duty of election board workers to monitor and guard the integrity of the voting process.

Denying access to the minority (in this case Republican) poll watchers and inspectors is a violation of Pennsylvania state law. Those who violate the law can be punished with a misdemeanor and subjected to a fine of $1,000 and sent to prison between one month and two years.

Those on site are describing the situation as "pandemonium" and there may be video coming of the chaos.

Some of the precincts where Republicans have been removed are: the 44th Ward, 12th and 13th divisions; 6th Ward, 12th division; 32nd Ward, Division 28.

“Election board officials guard the legitimacy of the election process and the idea that Republicans are being intimidated and banned for partisan purposes does not allow for an honest and open election process,” said McCain-Palin spokesman Ben Porritt in a statement to Townhall.

The City of Brotherly Love was roiled in controversy during the 2004 election because of rigged voting machines that showed nearly 2,000 votes for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry before the polls had opened. A man also used a gun to intimidate poll workers at Ward 30, division 11 in 2004.

Update: Fox News just did a report about the controversy. The Democrats are saying that the polling station is crowded and election board members need to cycle through the areas intermittently.

Absolutely!
And we have Batman voting this year, along with Superman, dead people, out-of-state residents (especially in Ohio), invisible twin brothers, and a host of other illegitimate ballot-casters, but for some reason those military votes don't get counted.

Oh the suspense...

Saw a pic on the Memphis news site yesterday where a person was pointing to a computer screen and the date of birth read something or another, 1863. :roll:

I just saw the news about two Black Panthers outside of a polling place in Philly intimidating voters, one had a night stick in hand, and said they better be careful because a black man is going to be president and they are tired of white supremacy. The police were called and removed the black man with the nightstick, but there have been other Black Panthers at the polling place as well watching the voters.

Well thank God the polling place I go to is a sweet little Baptist church and most of the voters in my precinct are friendly elderly people, especially at 10am =) I had no trouble at all and everyone was nice and friendly and helpful and they were all so glad to see my home schooled son with me on a "field trip" to learn about the election and voting process.

Maybe hired by the Republicans!


Yeah, I saw that and my first thought was that it might make more people want to vote for McCain if this is the support that Obama gets.

My uncle is a police officer in the 15th district in Philly and told my mom that they were preparing for the worst possible scenerio. Which is normal. But having grown up in Philly. I know what it is like there. It is a union/democrat city. Even though the dems have taxed most large companies out of there. Jack Frost sugar, Technitrol to name a few. The unions in Philadelphia are not as intimidating as they used to be but they still hold the reigns there.YBIC, Ron

Just saw the news that there are thousands of military absentee ballots in Virginia which are coming in late and the McCain camp claims its because they were not mailed out in time (by Sept 20th) to be returned promptly before the election. McCain's attorneys have just filed suit in court and the ruling has already been handed out, that the ballots must be preserved...

Here we go again...

I didn`t see the Black Panther story on any network last evening, except for Fox. I`m surprised this is still on youtube;

They call themselves "security." It`s a disgrace that this was allowed to happen in this country and it wasn`t even reported on.

They'll probably get hired as the new Secret Service.
