Obama unleashes army of lawyers

The Barack Obama campaign has mobilized more than 600 volunteer lawyers across Pennsylvania to prevent political shenanigans by the Hillary Clinton camp.

I met one of Obama's lawyers today at a polling site in Berks County. The woman traveled from Washington, D.C., to make sure "minority voters are not denied access to polling sites."

I was at this polling site for nearly 90-minutes and didn't see a single minority voter at the suburban poll. Maybe the Obama camp would have better utilized its resources in more urban areas like Philadelphia or Reading. But then again, 600 lawyers can cover a lot of ground.
