Democrat Thuggery @ Ohio Polls?

ConservativeGuy blogs at Right Angle about an e-mail from the Ohio GOP reporting problems with Democrat poll observers:

We're receiving widespread reports today of Democrats engaging in questionable and possibly illegal voter suppression tactics at polling locations across the state.

If you experience any problems with Democrat poll observers inside a voting location or with activists outside, please report them to us by email at info@ohiogop.org.

Democrats have proven they'll do anything to win an election - even if it means breaking the law.

* Republican voters are reporting intimidation tactics being used by Democrat activists outside polling locations.

* We've heard reports of Democrat poll observers engaging in illegal activity by communicating with voters as they vote.

* Some Republican voters are even being told by Democrat poll workers that they can't cast a ballot.

Help us put a stop to these illegal efforts to suppress the Republican vote. Report problems now by sending detailed information to info@ohiogop.org.

If you have not already voted, the polls are open until 7:30 p.m. We're seeing high turnout in Republican precincts statewide, but every vote is critical!

If you will remember, it was not too long ago that Democrats let loose dogs on black folks trying to register.

The more that things change...

These reports seem to be lacking something....what is it....
Oh yeah - details.
"Republican voters are reporting intimidation tactics being used by Democrat activists outside polling locations. " --Ok, what tactics?

"We've heard reports of Democrat poll observers engaging in illegal activity by communicating with voters as they vote." -- Where?

"Some Republican voters are even being told by Democrat poll workers that they can't cast a ballot." Again, where? Maybe they didn't have enough forms of ID.

If there were any meat to the claims there would be specifics to back them up.
As it is, they look like nothing more than a smokescreen to counter the reports of Republican-initiated voter interference that have substance.

What reports of "Republican-initiated voter interference" are those todd?

Misleading Robo-calls.
push-polls.
Phony 'Voter Guides'

And these other fine examples:

"In Arizona, three men, one of them armed, stopped Hispanic voters and questioned them outside a Tucson polling place, according to voting monitors for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, which photographed the incidents and reported them to the FBI.

In Maryland, sample ballots suggesting Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich and Senate candidate Michael Steele were Democrats were handed out by people bused in from out of state. Democrats outnumber Republicans in Maryland by nearly 2-to-1."

I have seen no reports from Ohio of intentional election-day fraud, and hopefully this will hold true.
