Hope and Change? Or "So now you know how it feels?"

A poll watcher who provided an affidavit to prosecutors in the case noted that Bartle Bull, who worked as a civil rights lawyer in the south in the 1960's and is a former campaign manager for **Robert Kennedy**, said it was the most blatant form of voter intimidation he had ever seen.

In his affidavit, Bull wrote "I watched the two uniformed men confront voters and attempt to intimidate voters. They were positioned in a location that forced every voter to pass in close proximity to them. The weapon was openly displayed and brandished in plain sight of voters."

  • Bias? It either happened or it didn't. The statement "Charges brought against three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense under the Bush administration have been dropped by the Obama Justice Department" is a fact, not an opinion.

    Google before being snarky.

  • Faux news the Kings of Spin and deceit. First it was a baton not a gun like the wording of the fox article implies. Second it was a civil lawsuit, so Anon 5:33 no charges were dropped because they never existed. Don't confuse civil with criminal actions. Do you sheeple see how much your precious faux news lies? They says the Obama admin dropped the charges, yet their were no charges. They say the DOJ won the case last month, yet the court document is dated July 2008.


    Hmm...
