GOP Inspectors Thrown Out of Philadelphia Polling Places

This morning, the GOP is sending along this message:

The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority (read GOP) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards.

The Philadelphia Inquirer is on it: https://twitter.com/tomfitzgerald/status/265784062617206785

These Inspectors are election officials – again, court appointed — and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats).

This has happened at the following locations:

Ward 32, Div 13

Ward 43, Div 14

Ward 56, Div 1

Ward 56, Div 22

Ward 32, Div 28

Ward 12, Div 17

Ward 39, Div 1

Ward 24, Div 9

Ward 18, Div 25

Ward 43, Div 14

Ward 29, Div 18

Ward 65, Div 19

Ward 20, Div 1

Ward 6, Div 11

It would be great to see an election year where everyone working elections knew the law, knew the rules, and obeyed them, huh?
