Axelrod Bullies Polling Organization

When the polls favor Romney:

Emails between senior officials of the Gallup Organization show senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod attempting to subtly intimidate the polling firm when its numbers were unfavorable to the president.

After Gallup declined to change its polling methodology, the U.S. Department of Justice hit it with an unrelated lawsuit — alleging it had defrauded the government, The Daily Caller reports.

And, weeks after announcing its filing of the lawsuit, the agency that is headed by Attorney General Eric Holder has yet to officially serve Gallup.

“We have not been served with the complaint,” a senior Gallup official told The Daily Caller. “I think they are drafting an amended complaint, but we cannot file an answer or motion to dismiss until we’ve been officially served.

“We obviously have a copy that has been distributed online, but until it is served, it is not official,” the Gallup official said.

Justice Department officials did not respond to queries from The Daily Caller regarding the lawsuit.
If you think this sounds Soviet-style intimidation, you'd be right. And who better to do it than Barry's pet Communist from Chicago. 

This ought to scare the crap out of everyone because you can bet that Gallup isn't the only organization this command and control leftist administration is harassing, bringing the full power of the federal government to bear on a private polling organization. It'll only get worse in a second term when these thugs have nothing to lose. Can you say Venezeula-style command and control? Barry probably has a contingent down in Hugo land studying how he does it right now.
