NAACP Runs Polling Station

--posted by Tony Garcia on 11/04/2012

I read this story and I knew two things.

There would be some people who would not find a problem with this story is the first.

The second is that those people would have a melt down if the roles were reversed.

Let's demonstrate (though I know the hypocrite-partisan-hacks will not fess up).
According to Eve Rockford, a poll watcher trained by voter integrity group True the Vote, three NAACP members showed up to the 139 precinct location with 50 cases of bottled water and began handing bottles out to people standing in line. While wearing NAACP labeled clothing, members were "stirring the crowd" and talking to voters about flying to Ohio to promote President Barack Obama.
...
At this point, NAACP members were instructed to turn their clothing inside out, which they refused to do and said they weren’t going to stop their actions inside the polling place. Their behavior and actions to move people to the front of the line continued for the rest of the evening. Texas State Representative Sylvester Turner, a former Texas NAACP leader, was also seen outside the building talking with voters.

“The NAACP basically ran this poll location and the judges did nothing about it,” Rockford said.
Did you find anything wrong with this?

How about this?
According to Eve Rockford, a poll watcher trained by voter integrity group True the Vote, three Tea Party members showed up to the 139 precinct location with 50 cases of bottled water and began handing bottles out to people standing in line. While wearing Tea Party labeled clothing, members were "stirring the crowd" and talking to voters about flying to Ohio to promote Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney.

One of those versions is the real one and the other edited to illustrate a point. If only one version got you upset then you are likely a partisan hack. Both of these should strike you as being wrong. Having the state representative there makes the story even more appalling. That election officials did nothing is shameful.

I personally would be deeply bothered regardless of which version of the story is true. One would shock me. I would be shocked to hear of such blatant disregard for the laws in an organized manner from the Tea Party.

The real story is the version with the NAACP. And this behavior is of no surprise.

I did not confirm this story myself but am assuming it to be true. We as a country cannot and must not stand for this. I don't want anyone ever even speaking to people in line to vote, the time for that is over and people should never feel pressured to vote for anything while in line. I am not a firm believer in heavy handed laws but this should be addressed legaly.
