Texas Election Judge Resigns After Threatening to Call Cops on Black Voter

An election judge in Texas has resigned after a video emerged Friday that showed her screaming and threatening to call the police on a black female voter who was confused about where she was supposed to vote. “Get out. Get out. Get out. You are rude. You are not following the law,” Lila Guzman, the Williamson County election judge and supervisor said at a polling center in Round Rock, Texas. The judge also told the voter that she was going to call the police. The voter reportedly left before authorities arrived. “Our supervisor loses her composure in the middle of this, and that’s not something that we ever train our poll workers, supervisors, election judges and clerks to do,” Williamson County Elections Administrator Chris Davis said. “We always train them and advise them to maintain control of the situation politely and answer voters’ questions and give voters options so situations like these don’t escalate.”
