Federal judge orders "no harassing or intimidating" voters at the polls; cites Trump and Roger Stone

A federal judge in Ohio has issued a temporary restraining order against the Trump Campaign and Roger Stone's political group, Stop the Steal.    Stone's group has been actively recruiting Trump supporters to go to the polls as "exit pollers" and "citizen journalists" to interview voters and conduct exit polling.

The order outlines forbidden activities, including unauthorized poll watching, loitering at polling places without intention to vote, passing out literature or talking to people in line about voting fraud, taking photos of voters.  It puts specific restrictions on people associated with Roger Stone's Stop the Steal organization.

This is a big win for the Ohio Democratic Party, which filed the lawsuit.   Similar suits have been filed -- to be heard Friday -- in Pennsylvania, Nevada, Arizona, North Carolina, and Michigan.
