A Black woman was reportedly looking for assistance with voting when a Texas election judge began screaming telling the woman to get out and threatening to call to call the police, reports KVUE.

The incident, which was captured on video and shared with news station KVUE, shows Williamson County election judge and supervisor Lila Guzman yelling at a black woman who was reportedly asking for help during early voting on Friday, Nov 2.

“Get out. Get out. Get out. You are rude. You are not following the law,” Guzman is heard yelling at the voter. “Go. Go.”

The voter left before the cops arrived but no word on whether or not she ever got a chance to vote.

Guzman resigned because she claims that she quit because she wasn’t supported by Williamson County Elections officials.

“Our supervisor loses her composure in the middle of this, and that’s not something that we ever train our poll workers, supervisors, election judges and clerks to do,” Williamson County Elections Administrator Chris Davis told KVUE.

“We always train them and advise them to maintain control of the situation politely and answer voters’ questions and give voters options so situations like these don’t escalate.”

The woman who recorded the incident chose not to identify herself when she spoke with KVUE. She said that she knew she needed to start recording as soon as the woman starting getting loud.

“As soon as she started getting louder, I was like, ‘This is getting out of hand.’ So I began to record,” the voter said. “[Guzman] did tell her she couldn’t vote there, but she didn’t say where in Travis [County]. The lady did have an accent. She could’ve been new to the country. I don’t know, but she needed some help.”

The voter seen on the video has not been identified.

    IT IS TIME TO GET ALL THIS DISRESPECTFUL, RACIST HEARTED PEOPLE CLEANED UP OR SHIPPED OUT. THAT DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE AND I DON’T CARE WHAT RACE YOU ARE. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT WHEN YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO HELPING PEOPLE. AMERICA DON’T NEED THAT FOOLISHNESS. PEOPLE WAKE UP CAN WE ALL GET ALONG HERE. PRAYING EVERYDAY FOR CHANGE!!

  2. Good riddance, Guzman.
    Instead of acting like a professional, she WAS a judge, this POS totally DIS-RESPECTED
    an elderly WOMAN of COLOR.

    All Guzman had to do was to provide the assistance needed so that the woman could vote.

    God DAMN AMERYKAH!!!!!!!!!

    • Why did she leave? Are we becoming fearful of the police? If you’ve done nothing wrong, don’t run from their threats to call the cops. They count on you doing that. She may have been able to vote, if they’d come out. A lot of Black people’s blood was shed for that right. They didn’t run, so we shouldn’t.
