NAACP Takes Over Polling Location


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, 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?

    The president of the NAACP in Houston was on the news saying he had no idea
    they were breaking any laws. If he is really this ignorant then he should not be the president
    of such an organization. I applaud Ms. Rockford for her courage to speak out, even
    if it was in vein. I will pray tonight and all day tomorrow that Romney/Ryan win the
    election and take back the UNITED STATES of AMERICA! Please join me!

      I am an American first and then a Black man,(and that’s just God given identity, His choice what can I say?). But I am sick and tired of the NAACP and the black panthers,black pastors and anything else that promotes seperatism. Jessie Jackson, Al Sharton are all nothing but fakes. All they do is run around talking about how bad the Black man has it and getting handouts from the gov. They get paid to be Democrats that’s why they pimp the game. We do not need handouts, get off your *** and get busy and you can make by yourself. James Brown said it best,” I don’t want nobody to give me nothin, open up the door, and I’ll get it myself.” Down with Obama, up with America. If you vote for O, you haven’t been listening for the last four years. Never forget Benghazi, Libya.

    Odumbo is RACIST. NAACP is RACIST. Racist AG Holder directed the DOJ not to prosecute black criminals who violate voting laws. We MUST take back our nation!

    Why didn’t she call FOX News to get this outrage on video? Why didn’t she make at least a dozen appropriate phone calls? WHY didn’t she do her job!?

    NAACP Is Racist

    NAACP direct tie to Black Panthers

    The people who are running the show at the polling place should be replaced with those who will call the Sheriff and their County’s Officials when Nazi groups like that have shown up and are interfering with the Citizen’s, the Voting process, Freedom, the Nation’s Laws and their State’s Constitution. They should be arrested and charged by the Federal Government, somehow, thrown into prison for breaking respective Laws and the key thrown away so that they will never get the chance to interfere with another election and the Citizen’s Rights. They lack respect for the Law but there is no excuse for not following it!

    We have uniformed law enforcement officers at every precinct in our town. There is NO way any such behavior would be tolerated. I commend the poll watcher and fault the supervision for allowing this illegal activity to continue. This matter should NOT be left as is…I hope that it will be thoroughly investigated and that the supervisors on duty will be removed from ever being a part of our election process.

    What I want to know is “who” told Ms. Reynolds to stand-down. I wish she would have called the Texas voting commissioner to report the activity. If not, it will happen again. These people should have been arrested, which is the rule for campaignming within 100 ft of a voting place. If we need police on property to inforce it, so be it.

    If that had happened in any one of our polling places in Potter or Randall Counties (Amarillo, TX), those lousy law-breaking cockroaches would be in the slammer right now!

    This a civil rights violation! The tactics of the NAACP
    need to be dealt with and rewarded by prison time as interference with an election is a federal crime!
    This is the time for the Feds to start showing up to
    maintain Law and order. This cannot be ignored by the
    FBI. There will be bloodshed. The members and president
    of the NAACP should be held accountable.
    It’s time to lock and load. Voting under these conditions
    is not acceptable. Obama should be held accountable, he
    must be removed from office NOW! Forget about the Jan.
    inauguration of Romney, we must do what the other countries do in this situation. The Muslim dictator must go!

    Amen to that! Those who break the law, should pay with jail time or a good beating, if they deserve it. These liberals, which I call communists, do not respect any rules nor do they have love for the country. Their plan is to divide all and impose their ways. We need to be alert and take back this country. I have lived through this type of totalitarian ways, but never would of imagine I would see it in the land of the free. We have thugs running this country and we need to take them out.
    rwjacksr is right, time to call the rangers!
