I guess the New Black Panthers feel emboldened by the Justice Department’s decision to drop the voter intimidation case from 2008. Philadelphia’s local Fox affiliate spotted a New Black Panther outside the same polling place handing out Democrat sample ballots.
Slideshow: Man With Panther Badge At The Polls
The man was seen outside the polling place in North Philadelphia was wearing a pin that indicated his party affiliation, along with a black hat, sunglasses and leather coat.
We spoke with the man briefly and asked him why he was standing in front of the poll doors. His response was, “no comment.”
We then asked him if he was at the polls representing the New Black Panther Party and if his panther label button was a symbol of the party. We received no answer.
Isn’t there a law against that? I know when I voted today there was a sign several yards from the entrance to the polling place advising that there is no electioneering beyond that point. Why is this guy allowed to stand at the door?
