    As Jamila Gatlin waited in line at a northside Milwaukee elementary school gym to cast her ballot June 5 in the proposed recall of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, she noticed three people in the back of the room. They were watching, taking notes.

    Officially called "election observers," they were white. Gatlin, and almost everyone in line, was black.

    "That's pretty harassing right there, if you ask me," Gatlin said in the hall outside the gym. "Why do we have to be watched while we vote?"

    Two of the observers were from a group based more than 1,000 miles away called True the Vote, an initiative that grew out of the Houston Tea Party known as the King Street Patriots.

    Voters feel intimidated by election observers

    Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White -- the man charged with upholding election integrity in Indiana -- was convicted of six felonies on Saturday, including three counts of voter fraud, two counts of perjury and one count of theft.

    White, a Republican, could face up to three years in prison for each of the counts, the Indianapolis Star reports, and will be sentenced on February 23.

    Even when convicted of "Voter Fraud", Republicans watch Democrats.

    Oh I get it, only black people should vote. If the whites are in the room, it's intimidating.

    Gotcha!!

    ZOOMygod!!

    Election observers aka Poll watchers (who are officials btw) actually taking notes!

    They are not taking notes on the voters, they are taking notes about the process.

    Your link to someones personal opinion is...

    rdean so because the three men were white that automatically makes the Republicans?

    And how do you know that all of the black voters standing in line were Democrats??
