PHILADELPHIA, April 21 (UPI) -- The U.S. Justice Department says it will monitor voting in Philadelphia during Pennsylvania's presidential primary election Tuesday.

The federal monitors will be deployed to try to ensure compliance with federal voting rights laws, the Justice Department said in a news release Monday. The monitoring arises from an April 2007 agreement with the city that settled allegations Philadelphia had violated the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act, the statement said.

A Civil Rights Division attorney will coordinate the monitoring and maintain contact with local election officials, the Justice Department said. Among other requirements, the city is obligated to provide all election information, ballots and voting assistance information in Spanish.

I lived in Philadelphia for 5 years and I'll be honest. Ed Rendell is a shady crook. If the Justice Dept. has done anything right is to monitor these votes. No way Billary can win by double digits, she will be desperate.
