Since the details are scant, this is going to be a short diary.
I never thought that solidly blue California would be at risk of this, but it looks like 2 guys didn't really think that through in Redwood City, California.
Redwood City Patch is reporting that two men dressed in black wearing sunglasses were asking potential voters for ID, claiming that in a black binder that they carried with the was a list of eligible voters.
Once it was verified that they were not acting in any official manner they were asked to leave and did so once the police were called.
If you witness something like this occurring I beg that you get a picture of the offenders - this can aid in identifying the source of the suppression (like we don't already know!) and can aid in prosecution should that be necessary.
4:33 PM PT: The section of the California Elections Code concerning this sort of activity reads:
California Elections Code: 18543.
(a) Every person who knowingly challenges a person's right
to vote without probable cause or on fraudulent or spurious grounds,
or who engages in mass, indiscriminate, and groundless challenging of
voters solely for the purpose of preventing voters from voting or to
delay the process of voting, or who fraudulently advises any person
that he or she is not eligible to vote or is not registered to vote
when in fact that person is eligible or is registered, or who
violates Section 14240, is punishable by imprisonment in the county
jail for not more than 12 months or in the state prison.
(b) Every person who conspires to violate subdivision (a) is
guilty of a felony
If these guys are caught, I sure hope they are prosecuted - this sort of thing needs to be stopped
