Philly Black Panthers in the voter intimidation case went after Black Republican Poll watcher
U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner Ashley Taylor told Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly that it was not just white voters who were intimidated by the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia during the 2008 election year. He talks about a black Republican poll watcher who was also harassed by the Black Panthers who were standing in front of a Philadelphia polling station:
"There is a black victim that is often ignored. He was an African-American male, an older gentlemen who lived in the neighborhood in that part of Philadelphia, who was a poll watcher and happened to be a Republican poll watcher, and he was intimidated. He was told by these folks wielding batons not to show his face, and he was terrorized, and we have evidence to that effect. It's the type of evidence that that would have been offered up to the judge in support of the motion had it been allowed to go forward, so this can't be easily marginalized by claiming only white victims are involved. These are African-Americans who decide to participate in our political process and who have identified themselves as Republicans. These are also the type of people who are being ignored."
