Poll Watcher

On the first day of early voting for the November 2010 election, Philip R. Klein made this claim concerning voter irregularities in Jefferson County. His posting has racial overtones:
The Southeast Texas Political Review has learned that a request to all in the Republican Party has been made for a group of poll watchers to be formed to watch the voting in the Southend [sic] of Beaumont and all over Port Arthur - after concerns of voter irregularity this morning.

According to sources, there were some early voting locations that were not asking for ID's and that voters had no ID's but were allowed to vote.

"We are concerned I have to say to you after this morning," said one high ranking GOP source.


"I am not saying anything illegal is going on - I am saying that there might be some people voting where they shouldn't be. We are going to have to watch this closely I think.

So we will be asking for poll watchers later today and this week. The election must be fair," said the source.
Fact check: Voters don't need an ID with a valid registration card. During the early voting period, citizens can vote at any location.  The Texas Legislature has debated the voter ID issue for at least four years.

Klein offered no substantiating evidence, but I wonder if this is one of the suspect voters in Philip's claim.

My take? Philip just made it up.

Something fishy here: "Millions" of readers and he gets a mere 75 votes? Klein Investigators should do some window peeping at Klein Investments, Klein & Associates Political Relations, and all the other cubicles at PRK Enterprises, Inc.
