Ryan J. Reilly | October 19, 2010, 10:34PM
'Poll watchers in Harris County, Texas -- where a Tea Party group launched an aggressive anti-voter fraud effort -- were accused of "hovering over" voters, "getting into election workers' faces" and blocking or disrupting lines of voters who were waiting to cast their ballots as early voting got underway yesterday.

I guess they were white folks, cuz if you are black, you can wave around a billy club, while wearing paramilitary clothing and yelling racial slurs and verbal threats.
