If This Isn’t Voter Intimidation, I Don’t Know What Is (North Carolina)

h/t Washington Times reporter who shot this video of McCain supporters heckling early voters in North Carolina. Calling them cheaters and generally acting nasty.

An organizer at the rally rattled off the addresses of early vote sites nearby that would be open after the event.

Photographer Joe Eddins and I headed over to the closest one and found a steady line of voters hoping to cast ballots early. Most seemed to be Obama supporters and several had come from the rally. Nearly all the voters were black.

Also at the polling site was a group of loud and angry protesters who shouted and mocked the voters as they walked in. Nearly all were white.

As you can see from these videos, no one held anything back. People were shouting about Obama’s acknowledged cocaine use as a young man, abortion and one man used the word “terrorist.” They also were complaining that Sundays are for church, not voting.

There’s one Obama supporter in the crowd, who unfortunately got his facts wrong about Obama (claiming Obama is a veteran). Check it
