SALON: Stacy Powers, a news director at Tampa's WTMP, discussed her Election Day experiences rallying voters. She told the audience that she drove around a predominantly black Tampa neighborhood in the station's van on Election Day and encountered voters who had been turned away from the polls because they lacked a photo ID After Powers challenged the poll manager to justify the decision to keep them from voting, "She told me not to get snippy with her. Powers said she was eventually kicked out of the polling place. She also shared the story of an elderly black man whom she met at another polling precinct near Tampa. He had told Powers that it was his first time voting, and proudly pointed out the "I Voted" sticker on his collar. Just as Powers was about to leave, a police car approached the man. "They pulled up on the grass, two deputies stepped out and they started asking the man, 'What are you doing in this area? What exactly are you doing?'" Powers said. "He pointed to his collar and said, 'I just voted.' And they said, 'We want to see ID and we want to see it now!'" At this point in her testimony, Powers paused for a moment and started to cry. "Then [the police officer] turned to me and said, 'What are you sitting here for?'" She then sped off in fear, she said.

Stacy Powers is a middle-age white woman, a former cop who is the news director of WTMP, an AM radio station in Tampa. On Election Day, she traveled around city neighborhoods providing regular news reports to her station.
...
Later in the day, Powers saw several police cars running a traffic check at the entrance to a polling place in another black neighborhood. She said she watched in disbelief as two officers searched an elderly African-American man. Powers told her story at a public hearing held by the NAACP this weekend in Miami, and she repeated it to me this week.
She was only one of more than a score of witnesses who told how they had been prevented from voting.
