BREAKING: NAACP Takes Over Houston Polling Station, Advocates for President Obama
5 years ago

HOUSTON, TX - Friday afternoon at an early polling place located at 6719 W. Montgomery Road in Houston, NAACP members were seen advocating for President Barack Obama according to volunteer poll watchers on location at the time.

According to Eve Rockford, a poll watcher trained by voter integrity group True the Vote, three NAACP members showed up to the 139 precinct location with 50 cases of bottled water and began handing bottles out to people standing in line. While wearing NAACP labeled clothing, members were "stirring the crowd" and talking to voters about flying to Ohio to promote President Barack Obama.

After watching what was occurring, Rockford approached Polling Supervisor Rose Cochran about what she was seeing.

"I went to the polling supervisor and let her know that it was not appropriate that they were in the building handing out water. She ignored me. I repeated my statement. She told me that she would handle it. She did nothing. I then went to the assistant supervisor and he stood up, walked over to another table and then sat down. I then walked into the waiting room and they were reloading another dolly with more cases of water," Rockford said in a True the Vote incident report.

After handing out water and advocating for President Obama, the NAACP members started handpicking and moving people to the front of a long voting line inside the polling place according to the incident report. After multiple complaints from voters about the line cutting, Rockford received a phone call from downtown telling her to “stand down.”

“All of the sudden one of the clerks, Dayan Cohen, said that someone wanted to speak to me on the phone. It was someone from downtown. I got on the phone and she said she was from downtown and that I needed to stand down and that it was okay for the NAACP to be within 100 ft. and they could hand out water. I told her that the NAACP was inside the building, wearing the NAACP clothing and caps and were handing out water and moving people from the back of the lines to the front of the lines,” Rockford said.

At this point, NAACP members were instructed to turn their clothing inside out, which they refused to do and said they weren’t going to stop their actions inside the polling place. Their behavior and actions to move people to the front of the line continued for the rest of the evening. Texas State Representative Sylvester Turner, a former Texas NAACP leader, was also seen outside the building talking with voters.

“The NAACP basically ran this poll location and the judges did nothing about it,” Rockford said.

Here we go they will be sending in the black panthers with their weapons!!!!

Four men caught in a Sheet Metal Workers International Association (SMWIA) truck full of Romney/Ryan signs were issued summons for receiving stolen property early Friday morning in Perrysburg, OH. 

Local police responded after residents reported seeing men stealing Romney signs in the middle of the night.

A Perrysburg Police Division incident report published by the Ohio Liberty Coalition listed four adult males in connection with the incident: Corey Beaubien, Christopher Monaghan, Sean Bresler, and John Russell. The police report indicated the vehicle in question was registered to SMWIA Local 33 of Parma.

John Russell and Chris Monaghan are listed as Business Agents for the union's Toledo district on the SMWIA Local 33 website.

Additionally, Facebook accounts appearing to belong to BeaubienMonaghan, andRussell identify the three as employees of SMWIA Local 33.

That is pathetic. I would have refused the water, first of all, having brought my own, and told that Sylvester the Stupid to move his people outside the building, and have them stop moving people from back to front. This is where people need to start  dragging these people off bodily when they refuse to get out of the building, and are moving people to cut in front of others. I wonder what downtown meant when she said she was told by someone from downtown to stand down? If it was the police, shame all to hell on them. If not, they should have been called, and been expected to do their job. If anyone told them to stay out of it, they should be fired. If it was anybody else, they should have been slapped into next week for either being for the NAACP and condoning this crap, or for being a sissy. I hope there is some sort of charges this woman can and will bring on all involved in this who did nothing!

I don't have quite that many I don't think but a bunch!! Jae is the typical liberal stalker! He don't agree with anything anyone adds on that is from a Conservative site so all he comes on to do is argue and blast the posters and the article..typical liberal BS!

I think the Conservatives need to get together the Tea Parties or somebody like that and have them there also vying for whose water the voters will take!!! That will give a good guesstimate of who is voting for who!!!

Hahahahahahahahahha! ROTFLOL!  He should really quit thinking about racism so much. I mean, his racism is fair eating up his insides. He just can't get over his racism problem.  It's constantly on his mind too. He needs to see a doctor before he collapses with all the heavy burden of being such a racist fanatic.

He's just jealous because he would love to have some of those tea baggers sitting on his face....obama is good at that one!!!!

Yeah. There was an article I read somewhere that the person said they felt Obama more liked getting it instead of giving it. Hope you Obama lovers are happy with a one sided love affair-that of Obama for himself as is self evident, but we mean if you are itching to crawl in the sack with Opuker, prepare to be dissapointed. He likes his lovers all give and no receive. Oh, and Maui. I do remember that that person said Obama preferred white males too, at least at his gay bathouse. That was probably the times Rahm Bomb Bam boy wasn't around!
