23. Ok. Thanks. I believe a group formed by Eric Holder & Obama talked about election day interferance .

..they planned on having advocates stationed at polling places throughout the country.
Maybe that is for NOV 3rd.

They were quite organized in their effort & expected disruptionss to occur.

28. Yes! Thanks. Your post should be a seperate OP & pinned at top of the DU page.

Along with any others to call for assistance.

It would be a useful go-to resource from today thru Nov 3rd.

This is important stuff to know about.

Thank You..
👍💙


Btw..Trump's cutting off comms with WhatApp as of this Sunday..🤬

3. Call it in - The county election board needs to stop this immediately

If Democrats were out doing it, you can bet the RWNJs would have already called the police.

Lotsa people need jobs.

6. They are probably paid.

There are a number of PoC's, which is fishy right off the bat.

In any event, are they blocking voting? If they are behind the minimum distance from the polling place, it's their right. It doesn't look they are blocking.

Regardless, it's a pretty small group of folks who wouldn't intimidate anyone.

Did anyone get a video that they are blocking voters?

It is election interferance & intimidation.

Not even 1 intimidator should be allowed.

37. They are also not masked.

Voters are standing in line masked and socially distancing. If an unmasked Trumper gets close, that's intimidation.

32. I was maybe 13-14 years old when my grandfather took me aside and told me that our

family motto was 'We don't take SHIT from NOBODY" - someone steps in front of me here in N Florida when I go to vote it's going to be bedlam. I am simply too old to give a fuck anymore.

Last edited Sat Sep 19, 2020, 08:57 PM - Edit history (1)

without their consent a felony. I don't know if 65+=too old to give a fuck, but that's the law.

34. Not only illegal - but stupid!

Do they actually think someone is going to change their mind witnessing/enduring that? If anything it might make some fence sitters (are there any) to note the illegal behavior and say 'hell no' and would certainly piss me (as a blue voter) off making me want to urge even more colleagues to vote ASAP.
