Rick Levanthal from Fox News is reporting on an isolated incident in Philadelphia where some white college student with a cellphone camera felt intimidated by a black security guard at a east side polling place. The college student made a video, sent it into Fox News, and Levanthal -- after doing his best to create a controversy -- is now reporting from the scene that there have not been any reports of voter intimidation.
Levanthal reports in this Fox News video filed approximately 2pm ET.
Fox News and other conservatives on the Web are pushing hard on the story that two black panthers may be intimidating voters at a polling place in north Philadelphia. But an Obama campaign volunteer who's been on the scene since 6:30 AM this morning tells me in a phone interview that there's been absolutely no intimidation of voters at all today. And a Pennsylvania spokesperson for Obama said the two men aren't in any way affiliated with the campaign
"There was no fight, nothing," she says.
Fox News arrived on the scene at around that time and started interviewing people near the entrance. The building manager asked the Fox reporter to leave, she says, and he moved further from the entrance. That's where things now stand. "There has been no fighting, no voter intimidation at all," she said.
