Elections Board refusing to look at Michelle Obama for polling place campaigning
Examiner ^ | October 15, 2010 | Marc Schenker

Posted on 10/15/2010 4:13:22 AM PDT by Suvroc10

The Democrat Chairman of the Chicago Board of Elections refuses to investigate Michelle Obama for her reported poling place campaigning. Democrat Chairman Langdon D. Neal and his Chicago Board of Elections are not investigating the First Lady for her, if true, complete violation of Illinois state law that strictly forbids electioneering at any polling place. The First Lady was in Chicago’s South Side yesterday, where she cast her ballot early at a voting center. However, reports soon emerged that she had actively campaigned on behalf of her husband—who is about to possibly lose both chambers of Congress and currently has a pitiful approval rating—instead of merely sticking to voting and leaving it at that. Late yesterday, though, the Chicago Board of Elections went into super-high spin mode by speculating that Mrs. Obama may not have violated any laws—despite the presence of a witness who told otherwise.

Wasn’t it expected to be this way? Perhaps can use this as a campaign issue,...

So you would expect otherwise? Moochelle and other “blacks” can campaign everywhere and anywhere they want to (i.e., “black” churches”, polling places, the White House and so forth). I’m just suprised she didn’t have a baseball bat with her.

...if the DOJ DIDN’T TAKE ACTION OF THUGS INTIMIDATING VOTERS, then this will probably turn out to be, just another rat “mistake” that they’ll brush over. Being the brilliant law student she was, and the 350,000 year hospital worker with extensive knowledge of all things medical, she’ll simply retort...”I didn’t know” and all will be calm because the MSM will see to it.

The state of Illinois is run by thugs and liars and thiving politicians, mostly democrats and some rinos.

Well the South side of Chicago
Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there
You better just beware

I’m shocked! Shocked I say!

No not really.

It shows the confidence the left has. Expect this election to be rigged big time!

Electioneering outside the polling place, Obama reacts to a voter who dared to express disapproval of the Democrats. "Get outta my face, sucka! Watch your back!"

If they do prosecute on such level on voting-place chat they ought to post a warning outside of each election area. Yes, I know she was an attorney and she certainly knew better, but the last thing we need is to create Martyr Michelle.

A warning and an apology are, however, both in order.

Each violation moves the boundary away from FREEDOM
and toward Communism/Marxism and Election Voting Poll
Control by the DOJ-Black Panthers-ACORN as they now
throttle and counterfeit each "election".

This is more nefarious than an average person doing so.

There was no way, for example, for a voter who disagreed with her to get into an argument with her — she had secret service who would have prevented anybody interrupting her. There was no way for the local police to take action, again because of the secret service protection.

On the other hand, given where she was voting, it was hardly likely that anybody would have disagreed with her.

I hope electrician Dennis Campbell watches his back... I think he’s about to become this year’s “Joe the Plumber.” :-(
