Leave a comment

A member of the Black Panther Party, who was charged with voter intimidation in the 2008 election for standing outside a Philly polling site, was back Tuesday morning.

Jerry Jackson, who was charged in the 2008 case, was seen early Tuesday outside a North Philadelphia voting site wearing the group’s trademark black beret, combat-style uniform and heavy boots. He is now a designated poll watcher.

When approached by a reporter he responded with “No comment.”
