Tanja Vidovic Argues over Voting Rights at Espiritu Santo Catholic Church

Tanja Vidovic was allegedly soliciting for pro-choice rights on election day November 6, 2018 at the polling station located at Espiritu Santo Catholic Church. In the video a woman asks Tanja Vidovic to leave the church's private property and solicit on the public property that borders the church. She says to Tanja Vidovic, "don't solicit and promote pro-choice on our Catholic property" at 2:01 into the video. In the video Tanja Vidovic alleges they asked her to leave because she is a Democrat.


Tanja Vidovic recorded the incident and posted it on Facebook. The video is below.

700 Feet

In the video and in an online post on Facebook Tanja Vidovic alleges that she is 700 feet from the polling location. This map shows that 700 feet would have put her on the other side of Philippe Park and off the church grounds.
