Election integrity falls off the map under Eric Holder.
On October 9, 2011, a New York Times headline read: The Myth of Vote Fraud. According to the editorial board, the wave of new laws passed in 19 states, designed to fight fraud at the ballot box, was merely another Republican retro-stunt to keep minorities from voting. Immediately, Democrats adopted the headline as a great election tactic.
So it was no coincidence that in preparation for the 2012 election the NAACP announced that there is no vote fraud in America. It petitioned the United Nations Human Rights Council composed of many of Americas detractors to intervene in our election process. According to the NAACP, laws passed in response to a clear and present danger to the integrity of the ballot box are Republican Jim Crow laws.
Why? Because, according to Ben Jealous, president of the NAACP, requiring a photo ID to vote is such an egregious assault focused only on minorities that the attorney general of the United States should intervene. And he did! In tandem with his long-time friend, Eric Holder launched a massive DOJ campaign to stop what he calls vote suppression laws like requiring photo IDs at polling places. He has threatened to prosecute anyone including democratic American states who would dare require photo ID of minorities.
Launching lawsuits against various states, Holder claims that laws which ramp up ballot security are a danger to our democracy. He contends that minorities (read Democrats) disproportionately do not have, and cannot procure, photo IDs. Of course, no evidence has ever been presented for this whopper, nor has it been explained how this same group manages to receive and process disproportionate welfare help even when the government requires serious photo proof of identification for each recipient.
Remember, this was the same attorney general who dismissed a slam-dunk prosecution of the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation. (Think scary guys with billy clubs at a Philly precinct.)
The Democratic Party has promulgated talking points fed to its sympathetic media machine buds attacking any organization which a) alleges a vote fraud problem, or b) proposes even the most benign of ballot security measures, or c) demands a scrubbing of voting rolls. Even non-partisan organizations like True the Vote dedicated to combating vote-theft have been viciously attacked as subversive, back-ofthe-bus carpetbaggers.
Every day, the media is dragged, kicking and screaming, to another story about serious vote fraud in America. Illegal voting by felons; imposters voting as the long-dead; vote rolls stuffed with ineligible names; phony registrations; non-citizens casting ballots; fraudulent absentee ballots. Indeed, in Indiana, the president was illegally placed on the ballot with hundreds of forged signatures. But like the cub reporters they become in Democrat scandals, our media reluctantly pushes out a meager online paragraph, usually kicked to the last page.
Many Democrats believe that anyone present in the United States, citizen or not, is an American and should be entitled to vote, one way or the other. That is, if they vote Democrat. There is no urgency in their policies or rhetoric when military men and women have difficulty voting. Have you ever heard a Democratic official complain about the scandal, ongoing for decades, that overseas fighters cannot get their ballots on time?
Democrats contend that coordination of database reviews between the federal and state governments is a privacy violation. Yet Florida has discovered thousands of felons, non-citizens, and the dead on its voting rolls. It has tried for years to get DHS to compare its rolls against federal records. Secretary Napolitano has completely stonewalled Florida. And when Florida passed comprehensive, anti-fraud legislation, the dem-deniers immediately filed lawsuits to overturn them.
So what, precisely, is the strategy of these dem-deniers? First, of course, it is to whip up minorities against Republicans. Second, it is to make the ballot so insecure that millions of phony votes get tallied up for Democratic candidates. In November, they plan to flood the precincts with bused-in provisional ballots and same-day-registration votes. Once in the box, it will take years for anyone to figure out that many were illegal.
That happened in Minnesota, where a United States senator was likely sworn in to office on a fraud. That happened in Indiana, where an investigation from the 2008 election is still in process. Investigations are still progressing as to why voting machines in Philadelphia malfunctioned in such large numbers in 2008. And so on across the country, in every state.
On May 11, Florida election officials announced that they are examining over 180,000 people who they say may not be U.S. citizens but are registered to vote in Florida. Chris Cate of the Division of Elections said Florida officials have asked the Obama administration to grant the state access to databases maintained by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help determine who is a citizen. Weve been requesting access, but have so far been denied, he said.
Why has the Department of Justice, now the most partisan in our history, announced through its Civil Rights Division head, Julie Fernandes, that it would not force states to clean up vote rolls? Because, according to her, it would conflict with the departments goal of increasing voter participation.
DOJ has never denied Fernandes made those comments, and now all of America is living with it.
We have GOT to get these petty marxist squatters out of DC.
If it's not one corrupt thing it's another, or being more specific it's 10 others and it's throughout the executive branch.
He will lose North Carolina, Virginia and North Carolina.
Voter ID in Pennsyanlia it looking not so good for the Chicago Mafia
Florida not North Carolina twice
Article 1 - The Legislative Branch
Section 4 - Elections, Meetings
"The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Place of Chusing Senators."
Unless there is a federal law forbidding the states from passing such a law Holder can pack sand.
Never! And that makes me sick!
We have moved from "not forcing states to clean up vote rolls" to "forcing states to not clean up vote rolls." See what I did there?
Holder and Jones are typical nut job liberals. All nut job liberals think minorities and old people are stupid.
It’s amazing that a person can make enough money to be taxed to death but for some reason when they hit 65 they are the dumbest people on the planet and need “governemnt help”.
It is too difficult for me to secure a picture ID. I am planning to fly on a commercial airliner tomorrow. Shouldn’t I be able to board the aircraft without showing a picture ID?
