  • Voter intimidation arguments head to federal court

    Democrats will argue before a federal judge in New Jersey on Friday that Republicans are coordinating with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump to intimidate voters, charges that the Republican Party says are not true in either the federal case or in the four other states where Democrats are waging similar battles.

    The legal challenge is one of several around the country filed by Democrats claiming Republicans and the Trump campaign are pushing supporters to intimidate and confront voters on Election Day. Trump has called on his supporters to act as "election observers" in certain areas of the country to help prevent fraud.

    A federal judge in Las Vegas on Thursday said he hasn't seen evidence that Trump's campaign is training people to intimidate voters. Republicans also fought back against charges of wrongdoing in Arizona on Thursday, while arguments will be heard on Friday in Ohio and in Pennsylvania on Monday.

    Both sides are getting their "they are undercutting democracy!" arguments nice and polished before the election.

    The DNP is trying to distract attention from their efforts.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

      Here in Arizona the Democrats lost their case trying to keep the bundling of mail in ballots allowed. The state passed a law making it a felony to gather and deliver other people's mail in ballots. An exception was made for cases like family members delivering their family's ballots, helping someone who's handicapped, etc.
      What it made illegal is ballot "harvesting" by political operatives who would collect hundreds of ballots from voters and deliver them to the registrar's office. There was no guarantee that the ballots were individually filled out, or that the political operative didn't help fill them out.

      But, only the Democrats protested making this situation illegal.
