Trump gets republican party sued

The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday asked a US judge to hold the Republican National Committee in contempt of court over allegations that Donald Trump encouraged his supporters to intimidate minority voters.

The DNC accused Republicans in a court filing of violating a longstanding consent decree, which restricts Republicans' ability to question voters at the polls and prevent those people from casting a ballot.

During the presidential campaign, Trump, the Republican nominee, has asked followers to "watch" for fraud in the November 8 presidential election in certain areas where minority voters reside, even though no evidence of fraud exists, the filing said. Some of Trump's followers have pledged to do just that, the filing said.

The RNC has supported Trump's "ballot security endeavors," Democrats said in the court filing.

The RNC said the filing was meritless.

"The RNC strictly abides by the consent decree and does not take part directly or indirectly in any efforts to prevent or remedy vote fraud," an RNC representative said in an emailed statement. "Nor do we coordinate with the Trump campaign or any other campaign or party organization in any efforts they may make in this area. The RNC remains focused on getting out the vote."

Representatives for the Trump campaign could not immediately be reached for comment.

The DNC asked a New Jersey federal judge to issue an injunction preventing the RNC from spending money on voter integrity efforts and to instruct its field offices that no employee shall participate in any ballot-security measures.

You shouldn't care, the RNC should care, they are in contempt of court. Ask Sheriff Joe what that means.

Because it is against the law for Republicans to monitor voting ......

Zo has a hard time understanding that the law in America also refers to his Communist leaders.

DNC v. RNC Consent Decree

April 1, 2009

 

 

 

 

 

 

In 1982, after caging in predominantly African-American and Latino neighborhoods, the Republican National Committee and New Jersey Republican State Committee entered into a consent decree with their Democratic party counterparts. Under that decree and its 1987 successor, the Republican party organizations agreed to allow a federal court to review proposed “ballot security” programs, including any proposed voter caging.

The consent decree has been invoked several times, by the parties to the decree and by others. Most recently, in late 2008, the Democratic National Committee and Obama for America sought to enforce the consent decree, claiming that the Republican National Committee had not submitted alleged ballot security operations for review. After the election, the Republican National Committee asked the federal court to vacate or substantially modify the decree. The court denied the RNC's motion to vacate the consent decree and ordered the decree remain in effect until December 2017. The RNC then appealed to the Third Circuit, which unanimously rejected the appeal and affirmed the District Court's decision. The RNC subsequently petitioned for rehearing en banc.

yeah

 

 

 

two scrawny guys at black voting location

Was there a law at that time preventing it ? No, they had permission from the election commission, as I recall.

 

The Justice Department investigated the case, but dropped it after no one stepped forward to claim he or she had been intimidated over voting.

Even the RNC is distancing themselves from Trump's poll watching requests........LOL

 

 

“The RNC does not work with any campaign at any level on so-called ballot security efforts and will not do so,” Lindsay Walters, a spokeswoman for the RNC, said in a statement to TPM. “We are completely focused on getting out the vote for the Republican ticket.”

 

 

“You are encouraged not to engage in ‘ballot security’ activities even in your personal, state party or campaign capacity. If you elect to do so, please be aware that the RNC in no way sanctions your activity

Apples oranges. The Black Panthers didn't intimidate anyone. Trump supporters are intimidating people, threatening to kill Hillary, etc.
