Armed intimidation in my county.

I did not drop off my ballot here, but I could’ve!

“The Sheriff [Bob Gualtieri] told me the persons that were dressed in these security uniforms had indicated to sheriff’s deputies that they belonged to a licensed security company and they indicated—and this has not been confirmed yet—that they were hired by the Trump campaign,” said Marcus in a video interview with 8 On Your Side’s Chip Osowski Wednesday night.

That’s rich. The Republican head of elections and the Republican sheriff:

“Marcus told 8 On Your Side that Gualtieri plans to have a deputy presence specifically outside that polling place on Thursday.

Deputies with Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office came to the polling place on Wednesday and spoke to the guards, who said they were hired by the Trump campaign and said they would be out tomorrow at the early voting location.”

Nothing like having a bunch of guards and deputies outside a polling place to make certain voters who just got the right to vote back (after paying fines, etc.) feel unintimidated.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

For what it’s worth I voted against that sheriff.

Doesn't sound like the sheriff was colluding with the "guards".

He's still worth voting against.

Just you wait until the governor activates the National Guard...to direct traffic at polling places.
