article imageGOP polling monitors removed from polls, judge intervenes

Philadelphia - In Philadelphia, GOP polling monitors were denied entry by Democratic Election Judges; but, a Pennsylvania judge issued an order that they are allowed admission.
Election Day is when people go out to the polls to vote for their candidates, amendments, and so forth. You have your Democratic and Republican/GOP monitors working the poll. In the most heated of political elections, tensions can rise as monitors from both sides can try to push around and intimidate each other. Pennsylvania is one of those cases. In Philadelphia, a city which is highly Democratic, the GOP definitely feels pushed around. According to GOP election monitors, a large number of them were denied entry by Democratic officials.
In response, a Pennsylvania judge has issued the order that the polling places allow those Republican election monitors back into the polling places in Philadelphia. It's reported that the Philadelphia GOP said that a number of its polling monitors were booted by the Democrats. The head judges of the elections, who are Democrat, were responsible for kicking them out.
The Pennsylvania GOP Chairman Rob Gleason, according to one recent report, said that it was a shameless attempt made by the Obama campaign. With this, the Romney campaign (the GOP challengers) have come prepared to have legal teams mobilized to every state. At the same time, the Obama campaign (the Democratic incumbent) is highly likely going to have its legal teams mobilized to every state as well.
