Re: “Right-Wing Crank Wants to Charge Wake Elections Official With Felony for "Voter Suppression"

Matt McKrell, it wasn't until about 1:32 into the video that Ms. Torrey finally offered Mr. DeLancy a Republican ballot after twice offering him everything but at 0:35 and 1:00. Were this an isolated incident, I might have given Ms. Torrey the benefit of the doubt, but given this happening to two other voters earlier in the day, I believe one can reasonably assert Ms. Torrey was consciously not informing them of all the options available to them, thus persuading them to make different choices. What would you call that if not disenfranchisement?

Re: “Right-Wing Crank Wants to Charge Wake Elections Official With Felony for "Voter Suppression"

Ms. Porter, what proof do you have that this video was a “selectively edited, cell-phone recorded video taken out of context,” or is that merely your opinion? If the latter, why is this article under the “news" heading? Additionally, were you aware what happened to Mr. DeLancy at the polling place also happened to two other voters earlier in the day? Finally, did you try and contact Mr. DeLancy and/or Ms. Torrey in order to get the full story, like maybe, I don’t know, a “real” journalist would?

Mr. McKrell, you may be right, but that doesn’t mean what Mr. DeLancy asserts didn’t happen.
