Kkk intimidating voters
"Since we are only talking to voters after they have voted, how can we be intimidating them? Revelations regarding Donald Trump and sexual assault, and his Charles Foster Kane-style threat to jail Hillary Clinton, have largely monopolized public horror over the past week. But no less deserving of attention is Trump’s verbal war on minority voters, which could have serious consequences on Election Day.With early voting under way, civil rights groups have said they have heard isolated reports of self-described poll monitors photographing voters and engaging in other intimidating behavior.
A traditional poll watcher, however, does not directly challenge voters—especially not based on skin color. Also unacceptable is posing as law-enforcement officers and demanding voters’ IDs, sending out intimidating mailings to minority voters, posting misleading or intimidating signs, or standing at the polls to challenge minority voters’ rights to a ballot.On Stop the Steal's website, Stone says Clinton's Democrats "intend to flood the polls with illegals.Liberal enclaves already let illegals vote in their local and state elections and now they want them to vote in the Presidential election." Stone said the 1,400 people across the United States who have volunteered for the project have been instructed to use neutral language and only approach people after they have voted.Democratic Party officials sued Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in four battleground states on Monday, seeking to shut down a poll-watching effort that they said was designed to harass minority voters in the Nov. In lawsuits filed in federal courts in Pennsylvania, Nevada, Arizona and Ohio, Democrats argued that Trump and Republican Party officials were mounting a "campaign of vigilante voter intimidation" that violates the 1965 Voting Rights Act and an 1871 law aimed at the Ku Klux Klan. Since August, Trump has urged his supporters to monitor polling locations on Election Day for signs of possible voting fraud, often urging them to keep a close eye on cities like Philadelphia and St. In a separate lawsuit, Democrats are seeking to stop the national Republican Party from working with the Trump campaign on poll monitoring, arguing that a long-standing court order prevents the party from engaging in so-called "ballot security" measures."Trump has sought to advance his campaign's goal of 'voter suppression' by using the loudest microphone in the nation to implore his supporters to engage in unlawful intimidation," the Ohio Democratic Party wrote in a legal filing. The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment. Many states allow campaigns and political parties to monitor balloting, though they often face restrictions.
