WESTMINSTER, Calif. (AP) - A teenage poll worker who was tweeting obscenities and taking photos of voters was removed from an Orange County polling place on election day.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1xbC1ga ) the girl complained on Twitter that many voters at the Westminster polling station didn’t speak English. One of her tweets was followed by four emoticons of guns.

At one point she tweeted a photo of voters and threatened to throw a table.

Registrar Neal Kelley tells the Times that the worker, identified by election officials as a minor, was removed.

Kelley says workers are trained to know that that kind of behavior is unacceptable.



The newspaper says the tweets and the user’s account have since been deleted.

A man answering the phone at her parents’ residence declined to comment.
