    Not according to Eric Holder!



    The Fairmount Ave. polling station is about a mile and half from my house.

    God I would love to bring a cameraman and confront them in November but I'll hopefully be at OCS then.

      See this is what the Democrats do come election day in Philly... they get a bunch of vans and go door to door, asking people to come out and vote (for you know who... they give a pamphlet with the people to select). They also get homeless people to do so, as well.

      I get it for the elderly and handicapped who may not be able to get to the polling station, but let's get real about what's really going on.
      So you're mad because the Democrats are exercising their first amendment rights as well as helping people get to the polling station?

        Wait so he's going around complaining that Virginia and Texas are creating laws trying to stop black people from voting, when in Philadelphia there are actually marauding posses harassing people who vote for the wrong party?

        Wow.

          ARMED posses. Dude was carrying a baton.

          You don't know how much I want to look for them come November and confront them on camera but hopefully I'll be at OCS by then.

            How exactly would they do that? I could be wrong but I'm assuming Philadelphia isn't so backwards that it doesn't even have the secret ballot yet.

              They can profile people to guess who they'd vote for, then beat them up later. Like if a Cuban guy comes up, you know he's probably voting Republican.

                Right.

                  They probably beat up everybody who isn't black, in case some white guy cast an absentee ballot. I'm going to join an opposing organization that dons white sheets and hoods so that I can make my race war fantasies come true

                    Reports were that people were turning away from the station.

                    Voter intimidation doesn't require actual physical violence all the time. Look at the Jim Crow-era South.

                        Obvious troll is obvious. We don't have organized crime syndicates running our elections.

                              Are you claiming that organized crime are controlling Italys elections ?

                                That's ****ing priceless. A poll tax? Get out.
