This is just incredible….In Hennepin and Ramsey counties in MN, voters have been banned by election officials from wearing “tea party apparel”, and Integrity Watch pins to the polls. Why? Because some voters might be intimidated? The “North Star State” has become the “Red Star Police State”, it seems.
Why do Democrats object to voter I.D.s? Why do they object to poll watchers? Why would anyone be intimidated if they are properly registered to vote?
Dems, as usual, doth protest too much.
Election Integrity Watch reported:
On Thursday, October 28, Election Integrity Watch filed a federal lawsuit against an illegal and unconstitutional policy instituted by Hennepin and Ramsey Counties, blocking people from voting if they are wearing “Tea Party” apparel or “Election Integrity Watch / Please ID Me” buttons.
Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN-5) claims Election Integrity Watch is out to suppress minority and student voters and uses deception to make his case.
When he crashed the press conference to impugn the neighborhood watch approach to encourage citizen involvement in protecting election integrity, he got caught with a difficult question. See how he used doctored Election Integrity Watch materials to make his unsubstantiated and outrageous points.
Wow, I’m pretty sure that didn’t go as well as Ellison had hoped….
I wonder why ensuring that we have honest and fair elections, is such a threat to people like Keith Ellison?

Gateway Pundit: Obama to Send Voter Observers to AZ to Crack Down on Poll Monitors
The Obama Justice Dept dismissed the Black Panther Voter intimidation case because minorities were the defendants. Now, they’re concerned that conservative poll-watchers in AZ are going to intimidate minority voters, who should not be in the least bit intimidated if they are legally registered to vote.
Do you see a pattern, here?
If you are white, and conservative...this administration considers you the enemy.
