Governor Palin: Help Stop Voter Fraud! #WatchTheVote; Updated: GOP poll watchers being forcibly replaced by Democrats in Philly





Governor Palin posted the following to her Facebook page:

If you see something at the polls today that doesn’t seem right, record and report it: http://youtu.be/CZzyPfz27Lc Share this video to help stop voter fraud!

Update by Doug: Here are a few examples of what I’d call something "that doesn’t seem right".

Paul Bedard:

Court-appointed Republican poll inspectors are being forcibly removed from voting stations in some Philadelphia wards and replaced in some cases by Democratic inspectors and even members of the Black Panthers, according to GOP officials.

Secrets just received this memo from GOP officials:

The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority (read GOP) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards.

These Inspectors are election officials – again, court appointed — and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats) and being replaced by Democrats.

Kerry Picket:

Tensions are high all over the country at the polls today. The Michigan  Republican Party is alleging that a poll watcher in Detroit on Tuesday morning  was threatened with a gun. According to the Michigan GOP the poll watcher’s 911 call was rejected. Below  is a press release from Michigan Republican Party spokesman Matt Frendeway:

This morning, a legally credentialed poll watcher was threatened and  intimidated while attempting to perform his legally allowed duties of observing  the election process at precinct polling location 289 in Detroit. The poll  watcher, a lawyer, was confronted by a voter in line, who demanded the poll  watcher produce his credentials, which he did.

However, the voter said that wasn’t good enough and that he had “a badge and  a gun” and told the poll watcher get out of the precinct. Rather than allow the  situation to escalate, the poll watcher left before the voter produced a badge  or brandished a gun. Fearing for his safety, the poll watcher exited and called  911, however the Detroit Police refused to respond to the call – neglecting the  fact that a voter alleged to have a ‘badge’ and a ‘gun’ in a precinct, putting  other voters at risk.

Daniel Halper:

Here’s a photo of an election judge checking in voters in Barack Obama’s Chicago ward–wearing an Obama baseball cap:

"This photo, taken by a voter this morning at the Ward 4, Precinct 37 polling place (1212  South Plymouth Court, Chicago), shows an election judge checking in  voters while wearing an Obama hat," a source writes. "Chicago’s 4th ward is home to  President Barack Obama."

The voter who took the photo says: "Woman in front of me also given an extra ballot."

And the voter adds that she has in the past been an election observer abroad. "I had greater confidence votes mattered [in a foreign election in a transitioning country] than I did about my own vote today," says the voter.
