Me thinks that voters having to stand in long lines to vote is the real story of voter harassment in this election.  Many say it is the new poll tax.  
So up the state tax on them & buy more machines! In Colorado anyone who plans ahead a bit can get a mail in ballot; thus avoiding the lines.
Better still, do like Oregon did and make all voting by mail mandatory.  That saves everybody a lot of money and a lot of hassle too.

Is the Obama's pissing post, Chicago, the murder capital of the country, not safe to vote in?
I believe that incident happened in Philadelphia.

OOPS! My bad.

Presumably you are talking about the Black Panther thingy?

Probably ... it looks like the same incident reported by Fox news but without their spin.  Michell Millkin and Rush Limbaugh are also making quite a big deal of this incident.  This is an unfortunate incident. Apparently some people are so stupid that they dont realize that there actions actually work against their intentions.  Oh well !  Make hay while the sun shines.
Perhaps someone should explain why civilians should be acting as some kind of guards outside a polling place. We don't have them in my neighborhood. Is the Obama's pissing post, Chicago, the murder capital of the country, not safe to vote in? Why didn't he fix it before he left to electioneer around the country.

More here on the voter intimidation by Rush Limbaugh.  Note how rapidly Rush goes beyond the facts as given.  Look the dudes in front of the polling place were just stupid.  But it was their stupidity, not some conspiracy to "steal Pennsylvania, because they don't have Pennsylvania".  These guys are just as stupid as the girl who carved the backward B in her face.  These are all just isolated incidents of voter passions becoming voter crazy stupidity.  I suppose we will see many more before the night is out.

More open to fraud though.  I had to show my drivers license to vote & get checked off on a registration list.  I wouldn't make it mandatory at all.

More on the story here.  Apparently there was no intimidation.  Looks to me that this has been whipped up by foxnews.
only you would think that a man with a billy club isn't intimidating, yeh?
