Democrat, Black Panther shenanigans in Philly

The controversy started early in Philadelphia today. The City of Brotherly Love was anything but as Republican poll watchers were removed from dozens of polling places this morning. The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority Inspectors (Republicans) were being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards. These Inspectors are being told by the Head Judges of Elections that they are not allowed at these sites, and some were removed, one forcibly. The Philly GOP went to a judge who issued a court order allowing these officials into the polling sites, and some have been escorted back into the sites by police. It's being blamed on confusion and a mistake with the list of Inspectors. Odd the list only kept Republicans off...

Also, members of the New Black Panther Party were once again seen outside voting sites in some Philadelphia Wards...although without the billy clubs this time. They have said they are only there to prevent voter suppression, not to cause it.

As a Pennsylvania voter, these tactics are disappointing and disgusting and I pray they don't affect the outcome. I'm sure glad Obama has got America on the right path....

Full story here.
