Trump Hires Controversial Figure to Oversee “Election Protection” Efforts
It didn’t seem like even his staff was taking Donald Trump’s cries of election rigging seriously, but today the campaign took steps to show he means business. They have hired Mike Roman — a controversial Republican most known for spreading the video of the New Black Panthers apparently intimidating voters outside a polling place in 2008 — to oversee poll-watching efforts.
The candidate has gone on a Twitter rampage in the last several days, repeatedly insisting that there is mass voter fraud despite no evidence to support that claim. Since the release of the 2008 video, GOP groups have continually used it as evidence that the Left is responsible for intimidating voters.
