PHILADELPHIA — Joseph Defelice, Philadelphia GOP chairman, says Democrats on the polling boards across the city are banning Republican poll watchers and minority inspectors from entering the poll sites.
“They’re just not letting them inside. They’re either poll watchers or minority inspectors. Minority inspectors are court appointed whereas poll watchers are mandated through the city to be inside that polling place,” he told The Daily Caller.
“They’re saying, ‘We don’t want you here. We don’t have Republicans in here. We’re full already. I don’t know what that piece of paper is.’ This happened in 2012. We made a big issue out of this.”
“They’re disenfranchising them. People are leaving and they’re scared to come back and vote,” Defelice said. “We’ve also heard multiple reports of people going into the booth with people multiple times without filling out assistance forms multiple times.”
