Democrats across na­tion sue GOP al­leg­ing voter in­tim­i­da­tion

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION+WORLD -

Lawyers for Democrats around the coun­try are fil­ing law­suits claim­ing Repub­li­cans and the cam­paign of GOP pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump are push­ing sup­port­ers to in­tim­i­date and con­front vot­ers on Elec­tion Day.

Trump has called on his sup­port­ers to act as “elec­tion ob­servers” in cer­tain ar­eas of the coun­try to help pre­vent fraud.

In Ohio, a fed­eral judge on Fri­day is­sued a tem­po­rary re­strain­ing or­der against Trump’s cam­paign and his friend and in­for­mal ad­viser, Roger Stone, bar­ring them from ha­rass­ing or in­tim­i­dat­ing Ohio vot­ers dur­ing Tues­day’s elec­tion.

At­tor­neys rep­re­sent­ing the Demo­cratic Party ar­gued Fri­day in New Jersey court that the GOP was co­or­di­nat­ing with Trump to in­tim­i­date vot­ers, ac­cu­sa­tions that the Repub­li­can Party says are not true in that state or in five other states where Democrats are wag­ing sim­i­lar bat­tles.
