Because of what happened in 2008 people know he is there to intimidate voters...he has no need to be there he is doing nothing but loitering and causing a nuisance.

Penn People are smart people and if that's the state law, I can agree with it. Here in TX we even told the UN they had to stay back 100 feet.

No need to contaminate the process.

No one here tries to intimidate.
I don't see an "Obama 2012" sticker anywhere on him. So I can only assume that you believe he is intimidating voters simply by being African American.

2. The Conservatives have a much bigger movement (True the Vote) where they're placing people inside the polling places to watch voters...

Yep.
In NC I voted early and there were all kinds of conservatives with placards and posters trying to get me to vote Republican.

As a Pennsylvania resident, I know the law here....he's too close to the polling place.

No one is allowed inside the polling place in Pennsylvania unless they have the proper poll-watcher credentials. If True the Vote people got the proper credentials (which I doubt they did in PA because you can have only a Republican and a Democrat authorized poll watcher) then they could be inside, but that's no plausible.

A Republican poll watcher was pushed out of a Philly polling place already and a judge quickly ruled that was illegal. Sheriff's Deputies have been dispatched to ensure no one with proper credentials gets pushed outside.

So this African American guy (apparently pulling for Obama even though he doesn't have any political stickers, etc on him) IS standing there in PA (?) and you know that he is intimidating voters?

Really?
