ElectionJournal.Org Documents Obama Electioneering at Indiana Precinct

Electionjournal.org  bills itself as "an online community dedicated to raising public awareness of vote fraud and election irregularities."

Best as I can tell, that means it attempts to use citizens themselves to record and report possible voting problems. An organic mélange of media, citizenry, community, and watchdog.

Today a citizen reported that at the Crooked Creek Baptist Church in Washington Township at about 10:15 AM they "noticed an Obama volunteer had set-up directly across from the voter check-in table. We noticed that she was actively speaking to voters. The sign on the table stated ‘Trouble Voting? Talk to me.’ and ‘Obama for America.’ She wouldn’t identify herself and directed us to call the campaign for information. We contacted the County Clerk’s Office and they stated they would contact the Polling Inspector to investigate."

You can watch the video HERE.

The Obama campaign confirms this happened and has apologized.

"A volunteer and credentialed watcher made a mistake and took a sign into the polling booth that was meant for the appropriate place outside of the polling place," said spox Bill Burton. "The sign has been taken down, and we apologized to the election workers for the mistake."
