O.C. Teen Poll Worker Gets Booted For Racist Tweets
While folks were quietly voting at an Orange County polling station on Tuesday, one teenage poll worker got herself kicked out after tweeting a play-by-play of her experience there—complete with profanity-laced comments and racist remarks directed at Vietnamese people.
Orange County Voter Registrar Neal Kelley told the L.A. Times that her behavior was "completely inappropriate" and that they removed the teen from the Kensington Gardens polling station in Westminster.
Some of her tweets, which have since been deleted, included:
"PLEASE SHUT THE ... UP BEFORE I THROW THE TABLE." (This tweet was accompanied by what looked like a photo of the voters.) "The Vietnamese news station is here I’m gonna shoot myself"
"Every voter that came is Vietnamese with the last name Nguyen or lee &; they don’t speak English" (This was followed by four gun emoticons.)
