Correction: A spokesperson for the Philadelphia City Commissioners spoke out to explain who was taking an official ballot box away after the Philly GOP called into question the identity of the man.
Matt Feely said, “This is a city employee who is taking a ballot box and is taking it down to the convention center to be a part of the counting process. It happens multiple times a day. They took it down to have the ballots counted.”
Feely continued by saying the city employees do not wear uniforms.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Philadelphia GOP tweeted a breaking photo of what appears to be an unidentified civilian removing an official ballot box from a polling location.
