    In a complaint filed late this afternoon and obtained by the Argus Leader, Daschle asked U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence Piersol to keep 200 Republican monitors out of polling places across South Dakota tomorrow.

    The hearing is before Daschle's friend, Judge Lawrence Piersol, whom Daschle placed on the bench, and was scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. (Central) this evening. Keep up with developments via Daschle v. Thune Blog

    Very Interesting. Here in Arkansas, some liberal panty-waste were intimidated by the very presence of the Governor's wife at the polls, even though the law says she can volunteer to work. There was nothing about what she said, did, etc..

    Apparently, just being there is considered intimidation by some liberals. They don't seem to have a problem with Michael Moore being there with a camera however.

    To the Dem's, verifying voter eligibility, somehow equates to intimidation.

    You mean they can't use that list of probable democrat voters to challenge them and slow down the process to discourage people from standing in line?

    How unfair.

    UPDATE: So apparently Daschle couldn't find anyone to say there were "intimidated" so they dragged in a Howard Dean supporter from Virginia who worked in Iowa who has been in South Dakota a day to complain about faces being made.

    . . .

    UPDATE: The Daschle campaign manager and deputy campaign manager are in the courtroom, along with other Daschle staffers and KELO-Land TV, Associated Press, Public Radio...about 10 press people total. About 40 people total in the courtroom.
    . . .

    UPDATE: Parties have rested. Final arguments coming.
