Trump Supporters Disrupt Early Voting in Virginia

A group of Trump supporters waving campaign flags disrupted the second day of early voting in Fairfax, Va., on Saturday, chanting “four more years” as voters entered a polling location and, at one point, forming a line that voters had to walk around outside the site.

County election officials eventually were forced to open up a larger portion of the Fairfax County Government Center to allow voters to wait inside away from the Trump enthusiasts.

Election officials said that the group stayed about 100 feet from the entrance to the building and, contrary to posts on social media, were not directly blocking access to the building. But they acknowledged that some voters and polling staff members felt intimidated by what some saw as protesters.

 

“Citizens coming into and leaving the building did have to go by them,” Gary Scott, the general registrar of Fairfax County, said in a statement. “Those voters who were in line outside of the building were moved inside and we continued operations. Some voters, and elections staff, did feel intimidated by the crowd and we did provide escorts past the group. One of the escorts was the county executive.”

 

Bryan Graham, the chairman of the Fairfax County Democrats who was also at the polling center, saw it differently, writing on Twitter that “the Republicans are straight-up attempting to intimidate voters at the government center.”

In an interview, Mr. Graham said he’d “never seen or heard of anything like this happening before.”

“I was there when the county executive was there and I saw him walk multiple people through the crowd because they didn’t feel safe,” Mr. Graham said. “I don’t think it’s appropriate. We shouldn’t be doing things to make people feel unsafe.”

Steve Descano, the county attorney, did not directly address the demonstration in a statement posted to Facebook on Saturday, but said that he was “instructing my office to pursue cases of voter intimidation that may occur.”

Virginia election law states that it is illegal to “hinder or delay a qualified voter in entering or leaving a polling place,” and that it is also prohibited to perform any kind of political advocacy within 40 feet of any entrance to a polling place.

Videos of the demonstrators quickly went viral on social media, and show them gathering outside the entrance, holding up Trump campaign signs and chanting as voters walked past them.

Thugs and gangs, this is what the tRump cult is now.   Laws do not matter nor does fair play.   Only their power and right to power.  They are a rude minority acting as if they were the only ones that matter in the country.   Hugs

    The SOBs ought to be arrested. I do think they see the handwriting on the wall. They’re desperate just as their fucked up leader is desperate. Every night after meditation time I try to imagine a Nov 3 voting map of nothing but blue states. It’s a good image!

      Hello Paul. I agree. Boy I do like that map you speak of. It is only going to get worse with the gang of thugs that support tRump. After he loses I think for a couple weeks he will whip them up into a rage to try to stop voting counting. I fully expect to hear of attempts to burn down buildings holding ballots or storming counting centers. Hugs

      Hello Nan. At his last few rallies he has been calling for his gang thugs to be poll watchers and to protect the vote. Yes he has happy with this. Like the rest who call themselves Republican, he doesn’t care for or like democracy, he demands the power winning gives him. Even if to win he has to cheat and break all the rules. Hugs

    Oh, I wish they’d do this to me! I’d have a blast fucking with them. I scream out loud, “I’m dying of covid!” Then I’d run into the middle of them, pull of my mask, and cough and sneeze on them for ten minutes. Trump supporter is another word for spineless pussy.

      Hello House of Heart. Yes I worry about that also. I think we are going to be in for a horrible week or two until they declare the winner, then the republicans in congress are going to do every dirty trick to make things harder for the incoming Biden administration. Hugs

        It is going to be the likes we have never seen either way it falls. These Trampers have no moral compass and will stop at nothing and I speak esp of the GOP lead Senate.

    I totally knew this was gonna happen, and I’m sure it’ll happen in every state. I don’t even have the words to describe this. It’s atrocious. What the hell is this that we’re seeing this year? This is crap you see in movies about dystopian dictatorships who have presumably paid cheerleaders who intimidate people into staying in line.

      Hello Chatty Introvert. You are correct. This is what Putin, tRump’s master, does. The problem is his gang thug supporters love this. They really love breaking the rules and flaunting their privileges. We are in for a bad election and an even worse time. To them winning at all costs is the game, and no matter what they have to do to win is OK. They don’t care it may hurt others or deny their rights, it is all about them and their power. Typical gang mentality. Hugs
