Ironically, the bias and extreme partisanship in Fairfax County that von Spakovsky is accused of inciting have demonstrably come from the Democrats. Last November, the Fairfax County Democrats sued von Spakovsky and other Virginia election officials in an unsuccessful attempt to allow partisan poll watchers to talk to voters in polling places.
The Court denied the Democrats’ request — a partisan ploy that dragged officials to the courts — just days before Election Day. If the Democrats had succeeded, electioneering and intimidation could have been easily committed by partisans at the polls.
Instead of removing bias and partisanship from elections, Democrats have done and continue to do just the opposite.
