As early voting continued in Houston on Friday, an incident occurred that should serve as a shocking reminder that there are those who care nothing about voting rules and integrity. Members of the NAACP took over a polling location and broke multiple election laws. Despite repeated requested by a poll watcher, to halt their activities, the NAACP members continued with their pro-Obama rhetoric and moving certain people from the back of the line to the front. This is what Americans need to watch for in the closing days.
As report on Townhall.com, poll watcher Eve Rockford was absolutely stunned by what she saw going on at her polling location:
According to Eve Rockford, a poll watcher trained by voter integrity group True the Vote, three NAACP members showed up to the 139 precinct location with 50 cases of bottled water and began handing bottles out to people standing in line. While wearing NAACP labeled clothing, members were "stirring the crowd" and talking to voters about flying to Ohio to promote President Barack Obama.
After watching what was occurring, Rockford approached Polling Supervisor Rose Cochran about what she was seeing.
"I went to the polling supervisor and let her know that it was not appropriate that they were in the building handing out water. She ignored me. I repeated my statement. She told me that she would handle it. She did nothing. I then went to the assistant supervisor and he stood up, walked over to another table and then sat down. I then walked into the waiting room and they were reloading another dolly with more cases of water," Rockford said in a True the Vote incident report.
After handing out water and advocating for President Obama, the NAACP members started handpicking and moving people to the front of a long voting line inside the polling place according to the incident report. After multiple complaints from voters about the line cutting, Rockford received a phone call from downtown telling her to "stand down."
Rockford says she later received a phone call stating that it was ok for the NAACP to be doing what they were doing and that she should back off.
This is law and order in America? If election laws can be so blatantly violated, what happens next?
