Fox’s Kilmeade: ‘The best thing’ poll watchers can do is ‘intimidate people’
Fox News giving away the game, again.
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade on Monday suggested that the ‘best thing’ that the presidential campaigns could do would be to send poll watchers to ‘intimidate people into playing it straight.’
Appearing on Fox & Friends on the Monday before election day, Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano explained that campaign lawyers had found ‘ingenuous ways to challenge things.’
‘So no matter how well it’s going, no matter how smoothly it looks, whoever’s losing has an opportunity to make a challenge,’ Napolitano said. ‘The Democrats will say, ‘Republican poll workers wouldn’t let people who are authorized to vote, vote.’ And Republicans will say, ‘Democrats are voting twice. They also have people voting who aren’t authorized to vote.’ And the courts are not going to be able to resolve this on Tuesday night.’
Kilmeade replied: ‘So, if you have presence there, if you’re a Republican, if you’re a Romney or Obama people, Republican on Democrat, the best thing you can do is to have a presence there to show — maybe intimidate people into playing it straight. Correct?’
‘Well, intimidation is actually [a crime],’ Napolitano point out.
