8. In 2004

 

When I was a poll watcher I met a husband-wife team of repig poll watchers. They were very nice, chatted with me all day, shared their repig-provided lunch with me, etc. (as opposed to the rest of the repig poll watchers, who were openly doing illegal things like switching ID with other repigs so that they could get a rest)

At the end of the day I found out the two were registered Democrats, and realized they had never challenged a single voter.

They got the job thru a cousin. It turned out repigs are so awash in money they pay their "volunteers", and these two were only there to collect easy dough.

I suspect repigs have tightened the requirements nowadays, although with the general level of total incompetence that repigs have, maybe not.
