Call The Cops

Is Dede training the Democrats now? Did the Democrats pick up this trick from Dede's defection to them? She must teaching them a thing or two about how to run a campaign that includes calling 9-1-1.

Daily News reports:

I just got off the phone with former state Democratic Chairwoman June O’Neill, who informed me the police had been called to at least two polling sites in St. Lawrence County due to overzealous electioneering (O’Neill called it “voter intimidation”) by Doug Hoffman supporters.

“We’ve gotten reports that people are standing there, covered with Hoffman stickers and yelling anti-choice stuff at voters,” said O’Neill, a St. Lawrence native who has been running the party’s GOTV effort for Bill Owens in NY-23. …

O’Neill also said she had received anecdotal reports of problems at polling sites in Gouverneur, which is Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava’s hometown. But she couldn’t immediately confirm this.

To Sean Hennessey's credit he down played it.

If any demonstrators are covered in sickers and well outside the "zone for such electioneering," and unless they are blocking people and their route to the polling place, then they are on solid ground.

Calling the cops unless it directly interferes with the process and people's right is flat out wrong... we need more details.

They have been called twice in Jefferson County too. Hoffman supportor harrassing voters walking into poll sites. Great Hoffman supportors. How can anyone vote for him. They are so insane.

I do not understand how one can vilify someone five days ago, and now act like he is the second coming of Christ. I have never seen such phoniness. What an eyeopener.
