Woman registering voters, works for the County Clerk’s office but only registering Romney voters (Updated)

Registration efforts are underway in most states, mainly becoming more significant since Voter ID laws took center stage, in order to disenfranchise minorities, who largely vote for Democrats. In this video, you’ll see a young woman outside of a Safeway grocery store in El Paso County, Colorado, registering voters — unfortunately, a savvy shopper videotaped the meeting. The young lady is only registering Romney voters and she claims she’s paid by the County Clerk’s Office.

“Would you vote for Romney or Obama?,” the young lady asked. After being questioned over who pays her she adds, “We’re working for the county clerk’s office.”

What not to do:  Register one party while discounting other voters.

Update.

According the Gazette:

Neither the volunteer on the recording nor the patron could be tracked down Sunday. But some who saw the video were outraged, demanding an investigation of County Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams, a Republican.Williams said the woman, though, doesn’t work for his office, which oversees local elections and voter registration. Instead, he said, she’s probably one of the scores of volunteers who are hitting the streets for both political parties to push voter registration ahead of the Nov. 6 election. The last day to register to vote for the presidential election is Oct. 9.

“She’s not our employee and we’re not hiring her,” Williams said. “We will gladly take the registrations from both of the parties, though, and ensure they are entered accurately.”

Vote wisely. Register to Vote.

    So the republican party has been reduced to cheating and they prey on children to do the cheating for them? How can they consider themselves the party of morals when they have no virtues?

      So ACORN, whuch registered everyone, was run out of business by the GOP, yet they encourage their folks to ONLY register Republicans. Nice bit of irony from the party who lays claim to the Constitution.

        I’m registered republican and I’ve become baffled by my fellow republican mindset. Forget what our party did, ACORN did it too! Since you don’t know the facts I’ll inform you. ACORN reported themselves and they are now defunct. The republican party hired a shady firm with a history of cheating and then acted surprised at their actions. You are the perfect example of a party patsy. They could prop up a turd and you’d vote for said turd. You’re a traitor to your country because your party wants you to be. They will continue to abuse you with nonsense and you will follow along in goosestep. You sicken me.

    Silly girl, probably has no clue what the repugs want to take away from her, i.e., health care choices/rights, etc..

    Thank you to the good citizen who questioned the ditzy young lady, took a video, and posted it on YouTube!

    Some people would call it was treason.

    Why does this woman still have a job?

    • Sandra Gillette

      I’m betting she was NOT employed by the county clerk’s office. Nobody is that stupid to risk their job to instruct people to cheat for their party. I hope.
