Voter Intimidation has Started

Did you see the story about voter intimidation in Arizona? The Republicans are having people supposedly “observe” the voters as they go to mail their ballots, but it’s gone beyond that.

Some of the observers, if one can call them that, are wearing camo clothing and trying to look intimidating. Some are even using Arizona’s open carry law to observe the voters while wearing guns. Some are taking photos of voters as they mail their ballots. What intent can there be in that except to intimidate people?
