Friday afternoon at an early polling place located at 6719 W. Montgomery Road in Houston, NAACP members were seen advocating for President Barack Obama according to volunteer poll watchers on location at the time.

According to Eve Rockford, a poll watcher trained by voter integrity group True the Vote, three NAACP members showed up to the 139 precinct location with 50 cases of bottled water and began handing bottles out to people standing in line. While wearing NAACP labeled clothing, members were "stirring the crowd" and talking to voters about flying to Ohio to promote President Barack Obama.

After watching what was occurring, Rockford approached Polling Supervisor Rose Cochran about what she was seeing.

"I went to the polling supervisor and let her know that it was not appropriate that they were in the building handing out water. She ignored me. I repeated my statement. She told me that she would handle it. She did nothing. I then went to the assistant supervisor and he stood up, walked over to another table and then sat down. I then walked into the waiting room and they were reloading another dolly with more cases of water," Rockford said in a True the Vote incident report.

After handing out water and advocating for President Obama, the NAACP members started handpicking and moving people to the front of a long voting line inside the polling place according to the incident report. After multiple complaints from voters about the line cutting, Rockford received a phone call from downtown telling her to “stand down.”

“All of the sudden one of the clerks, Dayan Cohen, said that someone wanted to speak to me on the phone. It was someone from downtown. I got on the phone and she said she was from downtown and that I needed to stand down and that it was okay for the NAACP to be within 100 ft. and they could hand out water. I told her that the NAACP was inside the building, wearing the NAACP clothing and caps and were handing out water and moving people from the back of the lines to the front of the lines,” Rockford said.

At this point, NAACP members were instructed to turn their clothing inside out, which they refused to do and said they weren’t going to stop their actions inside the polling place. Their behavior and actions to move people to the front of the line continued for the rest of the evening. Texas State Representative Sylvester Turner, a former Texas NAACP leader, was also seen outside the building talking with voters.

“The NAACP basically ran this poll location and the judges did nothing about it,” Rockford said.

But still Obama has done nothing to benefit the NAACP or black people. I can see if they were personally benefiting from this man being president but they are not.

this country is headed down... I really think it is unsavable... buissness isnt ran like it use to be, profits didnt use to have to grow a certian perent every year nomatter how the economy was doing... some years were good and some were not as good, and they made do... now profits have to grow every year or people lose their jobs

add that to the super growth of the governemnt to astronomical levels, bigger and bigger each year, with more and more debt to pay for it

entitlement, greed, the childish divison in washington over the last 15 years (no compromise, just stand hard my way or no way)

... its all coming down now, it was inevitable...

the increasing wealth gap has been hidden with woman entering the workforce, making most households 2 income households instead of one

a lot of problems... were no solutions were sought, just temporary fixes and kicking the can down the road

Odd behavior for people who are so sure that Barry will win the vote. I wonder who paid for all that water.

I agree. As if having to wait in line is bad enough, along they come.
