In its effort to stop exit polling in Ohio, the DNC defrauds the federal court.

DNC lawyers tell the federal judge that the group "Stop the Steal", that will be conduction exit polling on election day, was lawfully served for the lawsuit.

This claim was false, the group Stop the Steal was never served, and had no notice of the lawsuit.

The ruling to prevent exit polling in Ohio will be appealed due to the fraudulent claim made to the court by the DNC.

The DNC filed similar lawsuits in other swing states to prevent exit polling.

A federal judge in Arizona ruled against the DNC, and will allow exit polling to be conducted on election day.

Default The Machine of Joephef Gobbles!

The DNC is trying to control the message and the Willful Wickedness of the HRC Campaign is clear. As Trump continues to the White House the Liberals are freaking out. One has to understand that the DNC thought they would be @ 80% by know. Since then HRC has tumbled 12 Points at one time.

During the 1981 New Jersey gubernatorial election, the DNC, the New Jersey Democratic State Committee (“DSC”), Virginia L. Peggins, and Lynette Monroe brought an action against the RNC, the New Jersey Republican State Committee (“RSC”), John A. Kelly, Ronald Kaufman, and Alex Hurtado, alleging that the RNC and RSC targeted minority voters in an effort to intimidate them in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (“VRA”), 42 U.S.C. 1971, 1973, and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. The RNC allegedly created a voter challenge list by mailing sample ballots to individuals in precincts with a high percentage of racial or ethnic minority registered voters and, then, including individuals whose postcards were returned as undeliverable on a list of voters to challenge at the polls. The RNC also allegedly enlisted the help of off-duty sheriffs and police officers to intimidate voters by standing at polling places in minority precincts during voting with “National Ballot Security Task Force” armbands. Some of the officers allegedly wore firearms in a visible manner.

The Republicans have a long long history of engaging in voter suppression and other immoral means of marginalizing minority voters. Being the party of the old white rich men, attracting support from practically all what supremacists, the GOP continually seeks to cheat, lie, deceive, and engage in such grievious offenses against the constitution that they have been under a consent decree for thirty five years, and based on some of the things they've been caught doing this time around, the consent decree may be even further extended.

It begs the question how many prior elections, including those since the consent decree, have the GOP won based on their cheating, their efforts to make it harder for poor people to vote, etc. It also begs the question how much longer the American people will put up with a cadre of white supremacy apologists, the GOP, holding sway over other people's lives.

I'm talking about a not for profit doing exit polling, what are you talking about?


Exit polling has been conducted in every state, in every election, I'm not aware of it ever being considered voter intimidation.

The DNC went into federal court, and lied to stop exit polling. Are you ok with that?

I'm talking about the truth, while you are prevaricating about the mission and purpose of the entity denied the permission by the court.

Then you have worked hard to keep yourself ignorant of the facts of the court case about which you posted your earlier comment.

No they didn't. You just made that up because you're desperate to have something nasty to say about them, without regard to the truth.

They have an appeal hearing tomorrow.

As stated earlier, a federal judge in Arizona ruled against the DNC, and will allow exit polling to be conducted on election day.

The group in question is in fact a legitimate not for profit that will be conducting exit polling, not a group of thugs with clubs making racist comments to intimidate voters, like the Black Panthers did in 2008.

And there is a good chance that Republican voter suppression will prevail, but the fact that you're rooting for it is really troubling.

There is no way someone can get away with voter intimidation in this day, and age.

There are cameras everywhere, and if someone is attempting to intimidate voters, it would be all over the internet in hours, if not minutes.

If the exit polling is allowed, they will be watched, and there is no possible way they could ever get away with voter intimidation.

A claim you make without proof, without any reason to believe it, and with common sense dictating that what you're claiming is false. There are ways to do - in precisely the that Stop the Steal proposed to do it.

Yes and no. In terms of where it is true, what difference does it make if there are cameras everywhere? What's captured on the camera is the intimidation itself, showing that it happened. There's no way to know its impact, unfortunately, except to measure the lack of registered voter participation by groups at which the intimidation is directed, and that metric is confounded with other forms of voter suppression, such as the holding of Election Day on a work day (a remnant of the early unjust ethic that only landed gentry should vote).

In terms of where it is false, the intimidation itself may be such that people fear recording it and posting it. If you go two or three counties away from where I live here in Georgia, I would have to think twice, as a white person, about pointing my smartphone at anyone carrying a gun, even a sheriff (maybe in some places especially a sheriff).

Let's revisit the consent decree again, since its message either didn't get through or you're working far too hard to avoid admitting its consequence: This isn't directed at some backwoods hollow - this is a finding of generalized and pervasive transgression by a political party and those in support of that political party, over an extended period of time, in the interest of promulgating immoral and illegal voter suppression. If anything, the GOP has become more the party of white supremacy since the consent degree was adopted. The Republicans regularly deny the existence of racism now, or even more inanely, refer to antidiscrimination as racism instead of the discrimination itself, in a vain attempt to dupe even more weak-minded sycophants into believing their up-is-down idiocy - and all in the interest of opposing the justice inherent in the exercise of franchise by American citizens who rightists hate (or fear).

A federal appeals court overruled the decision to block exit polling in Ohio.

So far the DNC has lost their lawsuits in three of the four states they filed suits to prevent exit polling. The suit filed in PA has not been heard yet.


Well so far freedom is 3 for 4, and likely going to be 4 for 4 as soon as the a hearing is held is PA.
