Jesse Jackson: Long Voter Lines a Form of Suppression By Patrick Burke November 12, 2012
(CNSNews.com) -- Reverend Jesse Jackson, founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, said that long lines at Pennsylvania polling places on Election Day were a form of voter suppression.
He added that he has not seen lines like the ones at early polling places in Ohio since the election of Nelson Mandela in South Africa.
Speaking on Election Day at a press conference in Ohio, Jackson said, But they dont have the early voting. They only vote today in Pennsylvania, so those will be very long lines. And very long lines, while they show one sign of commitment and the legality, also [are] a form of suppression.
He continued, We were able to see in Cincinnati this past Sunday literally thousands of people. I have not seen such lines since Mandelas first election in South Africa. And while it was good to see people that determined, it was also unfair for seniors to have to stand in the cold that long, or for those in wheelchairs who are rolled up front, by people who care to let them go up front. For those who are on crutches, for those who are blind, who have the dogs.
So we have reason to be vigilant because with such efforts to determine the outcome of the election through voter purging, and voter suppression is a great concern, he said.
President Obama won Pennsylvanias 20 electoral votes, which were added to his 332 total electoral votes that enabled him to win re-election.

My polling place was at a senior citizen convalescent center. Wanna talk about long lines?
Voter fraud is also a form of suppression.
having to make an effort to find out about the issues being voted on; the background and positions of the candidates; and actually getting out of bed, dressed, and going to the polls on election day is also VOTER SUPPRESSION. (Sarcasism)
I’ve been disenfranchised!
‘Black Friday’ lines must be super duper suppresive when people camp overnight for a Kindle.
Reverend Jesse Jackson, founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, extortionist, community agitator, scammer of government funds for programs that benefit his pocket and life style much like Al Sharpton and oh yea the chicago messiah community organizer and chief himself. We might not have went over the fiscal cliff yet but we sure went over the sanity cliff.
1. not one rhyme in the quote.
2. Jesse’s voters’ were supressed into voting Democrat.
“Voter fraud is also a form of suppression.”
Beat me to it.
Dead folk don’t mind, Jesse. Just drag them up inch by inch and quit whinning.
Oppressive long voter lines.. well that supersedes the question of how 1000 registered voters can produce 1500 voters in neighborhoods suffering oppressive, long lines to vote. So the issue is not voter fraud — it’s long, oppressive voter lines.
This is really funny—are we sure this isn’t Satire?
So now because Whites show up to vote it suppresses the black vote.
“He added that he has not seen lines like the ones at early polling places in Ohio since the election of Nelson Mandela in South Africa”
LMAO—yeah and look what that did for South Africa.
This from a scumbag whose son is going to prison for political shenanigans with his Campaign funds yet got elected anyhow because the Negro’s voted for him.
Racist CS.A real man would be ashamed to show his face, but that doesn’t bother Jesse, the preacher who knocked up one of his followers.What a moral compass for blacks to follow.
Yet the media seeks out this joke of a man and tries to make what he says palpable.What a country we are leaving our kids.
Jesse, SHUT UP and go take care of your thieving mentally ill son.
Jeez, “won” the election and still whining about being treated unfairly.
Oh shoot! It’s too much effort for his welfare constituents to get their @$$es off the couch and give up Oprah for an hour to go vote. Boo Hoo!
Hey Jessee - Obama is sending your kid to jail. Maybe you’re next!
What? I thought everybody stayed home...
The mind boggles....
So the ones who were “suppressed”, would those votes have been for Romney?
What am I missing here?
Hey Jesse, got a question. If one race were to vote almost entirely for a candidate of their own race, would that seem kind of bigoted to you?
Or let me put it to you this way Jesse. If the country voted almost 50/50 between GOP and dumcrat, and the population of one race voted >90% for one candidate... kind sounds like a statiscal error, or maybe something else was in play?
Whatcha think Jesse? Should we march? Should we demand reform? Should we demand an end to such racism? Jesse? Jesse?
Deliberately refusing to accept and count the votes of the military is voter suppression. It happened. Could we have some outrage over it?
