A photo provided by Project Veritas —  a non-profit investigative group started by conservative activist James O’Keefe — shows a pro-Obama poster hanging just feet from voting booths in a Newark, NJ polling place.

The poster shows images of President Obama, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks along with the following text:

“Rosa Parks sat in 1955, Martin Luther King walked in 1963, Barack Obama ran in 2008, that your children might fly.”

Standing in front of the poster is a man that appears to be a local law enforcement officer.

New Jersey election law makes it illegal to electioneer inside of a polling room or within 100 feet of its outside entrance.

The polling place is a health care facility located at 65 Jay Street in Newark.

The photo was taken about 2 p.m. EST by a Veritas investigator who walked into the facility to examine the polling place, according to O’Keefe.

“It speaks for itself,” O’Keefe said, when asked about his reaction to the poster. ”It’s pretty shocking to see a New Jersey sheriff who’s on location basically just standing by and not enforcing the laws of the state.”
