Trump Supporters Disrupt Early Voting in Virginia

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-supporters-disrupt-early-voting-in-virginia/ar-BB19dlbb?li=BBnb7Kz&OCID=AVRES000


A group of Trump supporters waving campaign flags disrupted the second day of early voting in Fairfax, Va., on Saturday, chanting “four more years” as voters entered a polling location and, at one point, forming a line that voters had to walk around outside the site.

County election officials eventually were forced to open up a larger portion of the Fairfax County Government Center to allow voters to wait inside away from the Trump enthusiasts.

Election officials said that the group stayed about 100 feet from the entrance to the building and, contrary to posts on social media, were not directly blocking access to the building. But they acknowledged that some voters and polling staff members felt intimidated by what some saw as protesters.

******************************************************

I don't know how election officials can say they didn't block access to the building. If they are between the building and people walking a path from car or bus stop to the building and these people are standing in the middle of the path so people have to go around or find different entrances that is blocking the entrance

This is going to get worse. .

1. In a pandemic no less?

Why weren’t the police called on them? How is this legal?

4. "How is this legal?"

If Virginia is like Ohio they have to be > 100' from the door but they are not allowed to
block access to the polling location. In that case they are legal .... I might be wrong but
but I bet you they were paid.

2. I might be wrong but I think they were paid. Typical Trump m.o..

All African Americans, no masks, and pro-Trump.

People please remember that nobody is allowed to block and or disrupt anybody going to vote
so if they want to wave Trump signs and yell fine let 'em and then go and vote in massive #s.

5. Our African American brothers and sisters were beaten with clubs and baseball bats..

Humiliated, spit upon, And screamed at in their face when they tried to vote. We can walk around some Idiots with tacky flags. When you walk out, be sure you let them know you voted for Biden/Harris. We walk with RBG. We are not afraid, we are enraged!!!

6. These thugs better not block me or mine from our voting booths in MO ...

These 'protesters' or 'minders', or whatever rump wants to call them (I call them thugs, plain and simple) need to stay away from the voting locations 100 feet too.

This kind of behavior is ridiculous and uncalled for by anybody, and it figures that it would be trump supporters who are doing this almost illegal act in hampering other Americans' right to vote. All I can say is that if they threaten me or mine in hampering our right to vote, I will be angry and who knows what else? ... ... ...

These people (trump nuts) are truly running scared and are resorting to mafia strong arm tactics.
