Volunteer election poll watchers from True the Vote, the Houston-based nonpartisan election integrity group, are reporting that Houston’s NAACP chapter has taken over an election polling station.

The full sworn statement of the True the Vote volunteer who claims to have witnessed the event is below:

Incident Report

Eve Rockford

Precinct: 139 Polling location: Acres Home Multi Service

6719 W. Montgomery Road, Houston, TX 77091 County: Harris

Poll Supervisor: Rose Cochran

Asst. Supervisor: Bernard Guskie

Clerk: Lawrence Simko, Marsha, Franchetta Pines, Dayan Cohen

Offender: NAACP and Sylvester Turner

Date and Times: 11/2/2012 2:25 and 5:25

At 2:25 the NAACP 3 representatives arrived with probably 50 cases of bottled water and began loading them on dollies handing them out to people standing in line. They were talking to them about flying to Ohio to promote Barack Obama. They were stirring the crowd. The crowd was complaining about the lines. It was getting loud. I went to the PJ 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 AJ 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. The NAACP began hand picking people out of the lines and began moving these people to the front of the line. The people were getting mad and asking why were these people being moved to the front of the line. All of a sudden one of the clerks, Dayan said that someone wanted to speak to me on the phone.

This the real problem with poll watchers. They have no authority to do anything. They have no control. They can’t stop something they see that is illegal. The people that are in control have been planted there by the left. Sadly- all this report does is confirm to us that there is major cheating going on and those in charge of election are in on it. But nobody will do anything about. And in fact it is already too late. Those votes will be counted no mater what.

The fact that they are so brazen can only mean that the effort to crack down on fraud is working.

This is called electioneering, and it is illegal within 100 feet of a polling place. It is the responsibility of the election workers to stop this.

In Texas, the election workers are supposed to be split 50-50 between the two parties at every polling place. The problem is that too few Conservatives volunteer to be election clerks, judges and alternate judges. Instead — for some weird reason — they volunteer to be poll watchers, which have no power to intervene.

We got enough Republicans in Galveston County, but we had to work at it. Apparently Harris County did not work hard enough.

I keep telling people DON’T VOLUNTEER TO BE A POLL WATCHER IF ELECTION CLERK SLOTS ARE AVAILABLE. (Yes, I am shouting.)

Having both parties at each polling place is the best way to prevent vote fraud. In Texas, it is the law. So, next time don’t piss it away.

Maybe we should just give it back to Mexico.

I am a poll challenger in West Michigan. At our meeting 2 weeks ago I was told that I would be on my own (they usually try to double us up), since there wouldn’t be enough people.

When I picked up my credentials yesterday afternoon, I was told not to be surprised if I get company. In the last 5 days there has been “an explosion of volunteers”.

I think more and more people are becoming aware of the problem and realize they can make a difference just by being there. Usually (here anyways) this is all that is needed.

Eric Holder has already endorsed his people to commit crimes at polling places without consequences.

We should not be surprised to see this everywhere on Tuesday.
