Black panthers intimidating voters 2016
Though not part of the event, local attorney Michael Coard focused on the underpinnings of Trump's accusations of "widespread voter fraud" impacting the results."F--- Donald 'Make America Grope Again' Trump and his dog-whistle demagoguery to racist thugs regarding totally irresponsible and completely false accusations about Blacks purportedly engaging in widespread voter fraud in Philly," he said.
"Even [Schmidt] said, 'The real threat to the integrity of elections in Philadelphia isn't voter fraud. The real threat is irresponsible accusations.'

If anybody’s engaged in voter intimidation, the 68-year-old hasn’t seen it over the course of the past 40 years of election-day involvement. “Anybody with any wisdom can see that he’s losing so he’ll say anything or do anything to not let that happen because of his pride,” said Green, noting of the 2008 incident that, “Republicans whipped it up so it would become a black/white thing.
