On Tuesday, Janelle Bynum, a black female politician in Oregon said a woman in the neighborhood called the cops on her for campaigning door to door. Bynum introduced herself as a member of the State Legislature, and explained to the officer that such phone call to the police could be “dangerous for people like me.”  According to Baller Alert Bynum took to Facebook to share her story, ” Live from the mean streets of Clackamas!!! Big shout out to Officer Campbell who responded professionally to someone who said that I was going door to door spending a lot of time typing on my cell phone after each house,” she wrote, clarifying the fact that she was actually, “canvassing.” 

Although the incident was resolved with Bynum’s explanation, she asked the officer to call the woman who thought she looked suspicious. The officer complied, the two had a conversation and the woman apologized.
