Discussion: Department Of Justice 'Aware Of Concerns About Voter Intimidation'

Discussion for article #224243

If it’s an open primary, and thus an open runoff, there’s nothing McDaniel and Cooch can do about Democrats who choose to vote. They can scream about the destruction of Republican “integrity” (now there’s an oxymoron!) all they want and bring in 10,000 poll watchers, but it won’t make a bit of difference.

What do these people possibly know about " the ‘integrity’ of the voting process."? Too funny.

Wouldn’t it be great to see the black community show up en masse to vote for Cochran.
Not because of any great love for him- but just to piss off the Tea Party.

Pressure, intimidation, trouble-making… There had better be “poll-watcher watchers” so Dem voters don’t feel their cars will have their tires slashed, etc. Close-watching by DOJ is what’s needed so they can show SCOTUS things have NOT changed from the 1960s.

Exactly, except those people they want to bring in are designed to intimidate Democratic voters from voting in that open primary. Mississippi has a particular history of voter intimidation so I hope DOJ has poll watchers on the ground in huge numbers, cause a toll-free number with complaints is only gonna get you so far to protect the vote. The word “integrity” sounds like code for “keep the black voters out”. He might as well have said “purity”, because that’s what he really meant…

Let’s hope the Justice Department put people on the ground. And, makes noise about the fact they have people on the ground.

How will voters distinguish between those who are there to protect them and those who are there to intimidate them?

I suspect black voters will have that question answered pretty simply.

The names Chaney, Goodman, and Schwerner and come to mind.
