An Indiana election office reportedly ejected a Democrat poll worker over allegations that he had pressured poll-goers against voting for certain candidates and even pre-selected Democratic candidates on a voting machine last week, local election officials told Fox News.

The incidents took place at a polling place in Carmel, Indiana, under the Hamilton County Election Office. Hamilton County election administrator Beth Sheller declined to confirm the poll worker’s identity in an interview with Fox News Digital, but detailed a report from the inspector at the polling location.

Sheller stated that the inspector had learned of two separate incidents that may constitute electioneering and election interference. The poll worker, first identified by Chalkboard Review executive director Tony Kinnett as James Zheng, is now reportedly being investigated by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, and Sheller says she hopes to see Zheng prosecuted.

The first incident took place early Thursday evening as a group of education activists stood outside the Carmel polling place and advocated for pro-parent school board candidates. Sheller says the worker spoke with a pair of black voters who entered the polling station and urged them not to vote for the pro-parent candidates, arguing that the activists outside were “racist.” 

That pair of voters then cast their ballots and approached the activists outside, informing them of what the poll worker had told them. The activists, which included a campaign worker for one of the candidates, then raised the issue with the workers inside.


The inspector then learned of a second incident, this one involving potential election interference. Sheller said the poll worker was assisting a voter with an electronic ballot and pressed the “straight Democrat ticket” option during the explanation. She said the voter was then confused about how to change the selection and raised the issue with another nearby poll worker. That worker resolved the issue, allowing the voter to cast a legitimate ballot, and then informed the polling inspector of what happened, Sheller said. 

Hamilton County GOP chairman Mario Massillamany argued the incident raised questions about how many voters had been confused after receiving help from Zheng but had not gone so far as to complain to other officials.

Sheller says she is confident the two incidents were isolated, however, arguing poll workers would have been notified of other instances of wrongdoing.

Sheller and the polling inspector had Zheng removed, and Sheller announced Friday that he would not be allowed back to the polling station. She also told Fox News Digital she hopes for his prosecution. She added that she contacted Hamilton County Democrats chair Dayna Colbert to provide a replacement poll worker, which she did.


Massillamany condemned the incident in a statement Saturday.

“This should serve as a cautionary reminder that those desperate to hold onto power or gain power will do anything – including breaking the law – to thwart the efforts of parents and taxpayers to replace our school boards with officials who more accurately reflect the values of our community,” he said.

“If you see something suspicious, please report such activity immediately to a poll worker or other election official immediately,” he added.

The incident comes days before midterm elections in which Republicans are expected to make big gains nationally. Officials across the country are seeking to crack down on voter intimidation at polling places on Election Day.

A federal judge ordered a group of armed members of Clean Elections USA to stand at least 250 feet away from certain polling places in Arizona last week after voters claimed the guns and masks were intimidating.

U.S. District Court Judge Michael Liburdi also said they could not film, speak to or yell at voters or come within 75 feet of any ballot box drop or entrance to a building that houses one.

Democrats Fight to KEEP Using Toxic Chemicals, Pressure EPA to Ease Off Regulations

Chemical Free Life

Most adult Americans understand that anything equated with money and power eventually becomes weaponized by U.S. politicians on both sides of the aisle, and toxic chemicals are no different.  This time there is an interesting twist, however:  The Democratic party in the U.S. is currently running under the banner of “improving public health and the environment”, yet prominent Democrats are urging the White House and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ease off on regulating some toxic chemicals known to harm both public health and the environment.* The Democratic politicians have written letters of support to both the White House and the EPA for the continued use of the toxic chemicals; the support is on behalf of the chemical industry, the agricultural industry and the building industry. The toxic chemicals in question range from notorious substances under intense scrutiny to lesser-known disinfectants including Formaldehyde,** the weed-killer Atrazine***…

The ARM & HAMMER™ Feline Generous Program Celebrates Purrfectly Impurrfect Cats Living “Happily Furever After” and Hosts a Photo Contest for Five Eligible Shelters to Win $10,000 Each!


The ARM & HAMMER™ Feline Generous program just kicked off its “Happily Furever After” campaign to celebrate purrfectly impurrfect shelter cats who have been adopted and are thriving in their loving homes. Now through Thanksgiving cat lovers who have adopted a shelter cat that may have otherwise been overlooked due to age, appearance or misunderstood personalities are invited to share their own “happily furever after” by uploading a photo/video of their purrfectly impurrfect shelter cat on

The Happily Furever After campaign marks the largest single donation Feline Generous has made to date. In December, five winners will be selected to receive a year’s supply of ARM & HAMMER™ cat litter and each eligible shelter will be awarded $10,000 for a total of $50,000!

Purrfectly impurrfect shelter cats are often overlooked for adoption due to age, illness, appearance, or misunderstood personalities. They also typically require a little extra patience and care to get acclimated in their new home. For example, they may need some modifications to overcome a physical limitation or extra time in their own room to get familiar with their new surroundings.

“An extremely important part of adopting a purrfectly impurrfect cat is to make the transition home as stress-free as possible and to establish a safe environment that will meet your cat’s individual needs so they can thrive,” said Pam Johnson-Bennett, Certified Cat Behavior Consultant. “This may include doing a gradual introduction and adding another litter box if you already have a cat, to avoid conflict or using sound-generating toys if your cat is blind or visually impaired. It’s important to remember cats are amazingly adaptable and easily learn to adjust which means with TLC and a little patience, you can help your cat live happily furever after.”

“The Feline Generous mission is to raise awareness around why purrfectly impurrfect cats make such wonderful pets and to help them find great homes,” said Michael Daif, Associate Director, ARM & HAMMER™ Pet Care. “This includes making sure that they are set up for success when they arrive at their new home. We’re thrilled to celebrate the many cat lovers and shelters that have gone above and beyond to put in the extra time, love and support to give purrfectly impurrfect cats the happily furever after they deserve.”

He tried to help her eat and cuddled her ❤️

Leo and Muñeca have known each other for nearly their entire lives. The pair of lions and their children were rescued from a circus in Peru in 2014 by Animal Defenders International (ADI). They were briefly separated during their rescue, but other than that, they were rarely ever apart.Animal Defenders International (ADI)

“Leo and their sons, Chino, Coco and Rolex, were successfully removed during a raid on the first day of the mission in August 2014, but the circus blocked the seizure partway through and then went into hiding,” Jan Creamer, president of ADI, told The Dodo. “ADI caught up with them six months later and over 600 miles away, saving Muñeca and their daughters, Africa and Kiara … They were almost always together, exploring their 4-acre habitat and resting together under the trees.”Animal Defenders International (ADI)

In August, Muñeca suddenly fell ill — and Leo immediately became even more protective over her than he already was.

“Leo has always watched over Muñeca, but when she became unwell, he clearly realized something was wrong,” Creamer said. “He was seen trying to encourage her to her food, and appeared to comfort her.”Animal Defenders International (ADI)

While she was sick, Leo stood watch over Muñeca, and even cuddled her to try and help her feel better. In those moments, it was clear just how much the pair loved each other, a beautiful example of the way lions express their love.

“We have seen the closeness between lion companions and the bonds they share on many occasions,” Creamer said.Animal Defenders International (ADI)

Studies have shown that lions cuddle each other to strengthen their social bonds, and Leo and Muñeca were caught cuddling many, many times during their years together.

Sadly, Muñeca passed away in September at 19 years old. Leo stayed by her side until the very end, and she left this world knowing exactly how loved she was by him.Animal Defenders International (ADI)

Leo’s rescuers have been keeping a close eye on him as he mourns the loss of his beloved Muñeca. He’s been getting lots of extra treats and attention to help him cope. Even though losing Muñeca was heartbreaking, watching the way Leo cared for her was such a beautiful moment that everyone around him will remember for years to come.
