DECISION 2014: Poll Worker Removed For Rude Tweets

WESTMINSTER, Calif. (AP) – A teenage poll worker in Orange County has been removed for tweeting rude and obscenity-laced remarks and taking photos of voters.

The Los Angeles Times says the worker, who’s under 18, was removed Tuesday from the Kensington Gardens polling station in Westminster.

County Voter Registrar Neal Kelly says the girl was part of a student poll worker program.

The Times says the teen tweeted what appeared to be a photo of voters at the polling station with a caption that read: “PLEASE SHUT THE (Expletive) UP BEFORE I THROW THE TABLE.”

Other tweets complained about the number of Vietnamese voters and non-English speakers.

The Times says the tweets were deleted and a man who answered the phone at the home of the girl’s parents declined to comment.
