Dems, Media Smear Republican Poll Watchers as Right-Wing Extremists

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) The mainstream media and its favored political party, the Democrats, claim that citizen poll monitors are “right-wing extremists,” as the Biden Department of Justice sends out “monitors” of its own, sometimes illegally.

Politico, stoking the flames of leftist conspiracy theories, wrote an article entitled “Report: Far-right social media site users claim they’ll be poll workers.” This information was acquired by “comb[ing] election-related posts over roughly eight months.”

Specifically, users of Gab, Gettr and Truth Social, what Politico called “far-right social media sites,” who were skeptical of the 2020 election, have reported volunteering as poll watchers.

Politico’s hand-wringing comes as the Biden Department of Justice announced that its “Civil Rights Division” will do its own poll monitoring “for compliance with federal voting rights laws.”

The Biden DOJ intends to monitor 64 jurisdictions. These jurisdictions include five counties in Arizona (Maricopa, Navajo, Pima, Pinal, and Yavapai), three in Georgia (Cobb, Fulton and Gwinnett County) and five in Pennsylvania (Berks, Centre, Lehigh, Luzerne County and Philadelphia).

In addition to the DOJ workers, the Biden Administration is also sending out poll monitors from US Attorney’s offices and people from The Office of Personnel Management.

In its attempt to “monitor” the elections, the Biden Administration is in danger of breaking the law, as noted by Florida’s Department of Justice.

“Department of Justice monitors are not permitted under Florida law. Section 102.031(3)(a) of the Florida Statutes lists the people who ‘may enter any polling room or polling place.’ Department of Justice personnel are not included on the list,” a letter to DOJ officials informed.

Florida’s General Council continued, “Even if they could qualify as “law enforcement” under section 102.031(3)(a)6. of the Florida Statutes, absent some evidence concerning the need for federal intrusion, or some federal statute that preempts Florida law, the presence of federal law enforcement inside polling places would be counterproductive and could potentially undermine confidence.”

One wonders, who is more likely to engage in voter intimidation, some random Truth Social users or federal employees in battle-ground districts?
