“......two African-American poll watchers testified to the Commission that they were personally threatened by the Panthers. (These were black Republicans, so maybe that doesn’t count at Politico and the Washington Post, but you would think it might register with Thernstrom.)

Echoing Thernstrom, Politico makes the lawyerly claim that “no voters attested to being turned away.” Even if it were necessary to prove that voters were prevented from voting (and it’s not), the poll-watchers testified that voters approaching the polls promptly turned around and left upon seeing the menacing Panthers stationed out front.”

http://www.usccr.gov/NBPH/NBPH.htm

Maybe not clear that these were “black Republicans “ that turned away judging from this piece, but being a predominately black neighborhood raises the odds that they were black, regardless of affiliation.

Why would someone who agrees with them (aka Democrat voter)turn away?

The case was tried (defendants never showed) and a ruling was made. This all happened in May, I believe. Then, this horrendous decision to drop the case.

If the defense didn’t show, then they couldn’t have made a motion to have the evidence thrown out, so how was the evidence thrown out?

Abigal is getting senile. She needs to retire with Pat Robinson. Otherwise, they should be truthful and admit she is a racist liberal.

“EXCLUSIVE: Career lawyers overruled on voting case
Black Panthers had wielded weapons, blocked polls”
By Jerry Seper

SNIPPET: “Justice Department political appointees overruled career lawyers and ended a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense of wielding a nightstick and intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place last Election Day, according to documents and interviews.

The incident - which gained national attention when it was captured on videotape and distributed on YouTube - had prompted the government to sue the men, saying they violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by scaring would-be voters with the weapon, racial slurs and military-style uniforms.

Career lawyers pursued the case for months, including obtaining an affidavit from a prominent 1960s civil rights activist who witnessed the confrontation and described it as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” that he had seen, even during the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago.”

“Only in Philly: Black Panther on the Ballot!”
May 18, 2010 by EJ

SNIPPET: “Jerry Jackson, notorious member of the New Black Panther Party, who was seen in the video below intimidating and threatening voters in 2008, is running for re-election as a member of the Democratic Executive Committee in Philadelphia.

Below is the “sample ballot” for the 14th Ward, 4th Division. A sample ballot is posted outside of each polling location. You can see Jackson is listed first in a field of three. The top two vote getters will be elected to a four year term as a member of the Democratic Executive Committee. In 2008, Jackson was issued a certificate by the Democratic Party to be inside of the polling place where he was seen intimidating voters.”

“Charges Against ‘New Black Panthers’ Dropped by Obama Justice Dept.
FOXNews.com”

SNIPPET: “A poll watcher who provided an affidavit to prosecutors in the case noted that Bartle Bull, who worked as a civil rights lawyer in the south in the 1960’s and is a former campaign manager for Robert Kennedy, said it was the most blatant form of voter intimidation he had ever seen.

In his affidavit, obtained by FOX News, Bull wrote “I watched the two uniformed men confront voters and attempt to intimidate voters. They were positioned in a location that forced every voter to pass in close proximity to them. The weapon was openly displayed and brandished in plain sight of voters.”

He also said they tried to “interfere with the work of other poll observers ... whom the uniformed men apparently believed did not share their preferences politically,” noting that one of the panthers turned toward the white poll observers and said “you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.””

“ADAMS: Inside the Black Panther case Anger, ignorance and lies”
By J. Christian Adams 6:58 p.m., Friday, June 25, 2010

SNIPPET: “On the day President Obama was elected, armed men wearing the black berets and jackboots of the New Black Panther Party were stationed at the entrance to a polling place in Philadelphia. They brandished a weapon and intimidated voters and poll watchers. After the election, the Justice Department brought a voter-intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party and those armed thugs. I and other Justice attorneys diligently pursued the case and obtained an entry of default after the defendants ignored the charges. Before a final judgment could be entered in May 2009, our superiors ordered us to dismiss the case.

The New Black Panther case was the simplest and most obvious violation of federal law I saw in my Justice Department career. Because of the corrupt nature of the dismissal, statements falsely characterizing the case and, most of all, indefensible orders for the career attorneys not to comply with lawful subpoenas investigating the dismissal, this month I resigned my position as a Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney.”

I guess standing in front of a poll with a club in your hands and wearing black fatigues isn't intimidating in any way. They were merely acting as doormen for the voters that's all. “Right this way sir”.

“And by the way sir, pull the correct lever or I will beat your white ass”.

No, there was no voter intimidation there.

Photo's and video just aren't good enough evidence I suppose. These people must play us for fools.

Whatever the writer says is immaterial. It was on National TV. Hell, it was obvious what they did.

I like that “black pampers” angle. We ought to wear them to the polls and if any NBPP thugs show up, give ‘em some.
