A photo has surfaced of a large mural of President Barack Obama inside a polling location in Pennsylvania.

“Unreal: Obama mural inside polling place in Philly. No wonder they are kicking out GOP officials,” RNC spokesman Tim Miller wrote on Twitter.

The Weekly Standard reported that the poll is at the 35th ward-D18 Franklin School.

UPDATE:

RNC Deputy Communications Director Tim Miller tweets that an election judge has ordered the mural be covered up:

“Update: Election Judge in PA has ordered Obama mural in polling place covered up. Order here –> pic.twitter.com/bcCgpNbo,” wrote Miller.

UPDATE II:

Another photo posted by Greta Van Susteren shows that despite the order to cover the mural, parts are still visible.
