Usage Note: When Someone Interferes With an Election, That’s a Shenanigan

Someone sent an official-looking email to people affiliated with George Mason University saying that the election had been postponed a day.

But for the “are you fucking kidding me?” factor, dude here takes the cake:

From other things I’ve seen, it appears that the guy not holding the nightstick was an official poll-watcher, which makes it even worse.  He’s supposed to be making things work better, not intimidate people. Also, when police removed the man with the nightstick, the poll watcher was allowed to stay. (H/t: Clown College)

The comforting news is that these are pretty clearly two isolated headcases.

News: While he was indisputably standing there with a nightstick, it’s not clear if anyone officially complained.

  1. I’m outraged at the BLACK PANTHERS SUPPRESSing VOTERS IN PHILLY POLLING PLACE

    POLICE HAVE REMOVED A MAN IN BLACK PANTHER GARB WEILDING A BILLY CLUB AT A PHILLY POLLING PLACE. TWO MEN HAVE BEEN REPORTED BY A U.S. ARMY VETERAN TO POLICE AS THEY BLOCKED THE ENTRANCE TO THE POLLING PLACE. THEY CLOSED RANKS ON THE WHITE VETERAN AS HE ATTEMPTED TO ENTER THE POLLING PLACE. UPON LEAVING ONE OF THEM, WHILE TAPPING THE BILLY CLUB IN HIS HAND, TOLD THE VETERAN THAT HE DIDN’T WANT TO LEAVE THE POLLING STATION BECAUSE OBAMA HAD ALREADY WON THE ELECTION. HE ALSO STATED THAT “WE ARE SICK OF WHITE SUPREMECY.” POLICE REMOVED THE MAN FROM THE POLLING STATION, HOWEVER THE OTHER BLACK PANTHER WAS ALLOWED TO REMAIN THERE.
