Dem Chair Gets Rowdy With Police At Voting Precinct

It seems the Democrat National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz just does not know when to close her mouth and when to follow the law. Schultz got in an altercation with police outside and Aventura, Florida polling location.

A group of sign-waving campaigners comprised of both Republicans and Democrats witnessed the altercation between the DNC Chair and an Aventura policeman in which she took issue with his request to not engage in campaign activities in the middle of the street, which would hold up traffic. Sounds reasonable, right?

Javier Manjarres reports,
She listened to the police officer’s respectful and reasonable request, but Wasserman Schultz continued to argue with the police officer, according to several people who witnessed the incident
Wasserman Schultz was greeting voters and waiving her campaign signs on a street that leading into the polling site and was obstructing traffic by stopping cars before they could even enter the parking area.
The police officer respectfully asked Wasserman Schultz to move onto the sidewalk as everyone else was required to do, but the Congresswoman was unhappy with not being able to campaign how she saw it fit. Unnerved by the simple request from a police officer, Wasserman Schultz made a “well placed” phone call to some unknown individual in a position of authority. Five minutes later, the Aventura City Mayor came to the scene and was confronted by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and proceeded to get an earful from her as well.
Wasserman Schultz stayed about 20 minutes before she left the scene with the six or so supporters she brought with her . After the congresswoman left, one of the Democrat supporters who witnessed the whole incident confronted the Mayor and told him that what she did was “extremely inappropriate” for her to berate him in the manner she did.
I think it’s safe to say this is a form of voter suppression.
