Poll Dancing




There is an article over at Politico on the right wing poll watching plans and present reality.

Some of the details and comments from those involved are equally troubling and hilarious.

I am just not certain if some people have any connection to reality...


These comments on both poll watching and voter suppression plans, from a conservative group, for Philadelphia...
For example.

Many polling locations are in schools, and black schools are so disorderly that pretty much any official-looking white person with a clipboard can gain access to them ahead of time and set up a hidden camera. You don't really ever even have to speak with an adult. Simply walk in like you belong there and no one even asks you why you are there. So we usually go in teams of two, one person driving and one person dressed as a blue collar worker with a clipboard, and we set up a hidden camera in the school cafeteria. Go during lunchtime and the teachers are all so busy trying to contain the kids that no one says anything. We already have a few set up...

We also have some teams going in to the ghettos in Philly with 40s and weed to give out to the local residents, which we think will lead to more of them staying home. We have had success with this in the past...


So, a couple things here...

The plan is to set up hidden cameras that look over kids eating lunch?
I guess they will only get used of voting day, because hidden cameras to watch a kids space...
Well, that is just fucking creepy.
Where do those wild kids eat on voting day, by the way?
Maybe the polls get set up in the gymnasium, or someplace else, for the election?

And to keep voting turn out low, people are going to drive around passing out booze and weed?
I am guessing the architect of this scheme has never actually been to Philadelphia...
It is the city of brotherly love, sure, but two white guys driving around handing out weed and malt liquor is going to raise the suspicions of any Philly resident.
Seriously.
It's quite a risk and investment as well.
All that mary jane, all those 40's, rolling through the "ghettos" of the a big city...
They say you can hardly walk through those areas without getting shot.


I mean, I just don't know what to say...
