Houston Tea Party Group Accused Of Voter Intimidation

Posted by | October 20, 2010 00:18 | Filed under: Top Stories

A Houston tea party group called the King Street Patriots is being sued by Democratic groups because of its behavior during early voting.

…witnesses in minority precincts had reported representatives from the group “shouting misinformation” and “following voters and standing behind them” as they tried to vote.

There have been 14 complaints in 11 locations on the first day of voting Monday.

The complaints included poll watchers “hovering over” voters, “getting into election workers’ faces” and blocking or disrupting lines of voters waiting to cast their ballots.

As Tommy Christopher at Mediaite notes, don’t expect this to get the attention the New Black Panther Party got for one allegation in 2008. There you had video of a black guy with a nightstick.  The charges against the tea party group are less sexy, but potentially show a pattern rather than an isolated incident.
