DOJ Orders Florida to Cease Voter Purge
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 2 June 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 06/02/2012 11:11:08 AM PDT by John Semmens

The Obama Administration’s Department of Justice told Florida election officials that they must halt their efforts to purge non-citizens from the State’s voter registration rolls.

T. Christian Herren Jr., the DOJ’s lead civil rights lawyer, pointed out that “inasmuch as the vast majority of the non-citizens voting in Florida are illegal immigrants from Latin America this purging exercise would have a disproportionate impact on a protected minority. Thus, the purge violates both the 1965 Voting Rights Act and the 1993 National Voter Registration Act.”

Florida officials were warned that “failure to comply with this cease-and-desist order may require the Department of Justice to oversee and possibly put aside subsequent election results from your state until federal authorities can make the appropriate adjustments to offset the discriminatory impacts caused by the purge.”

Florida is disenfranchising the rights of foreign nationals to vote in our "elections".

This is stupid. A better plan is to purge everyone from the voting rolls and require everyone to prove his or her qualifications to re-register. That way, there can be no claim of discrimination.

And, on election day a thumbprint should be taken from each voter. Also, entrances and exits to polls should be recorded by video cameras.

Who could complain about those rules?

This is part of Eric Holder's Racial Incitement It's a link to the WSJ, so if you can't access the article, let me know and I will summarize. The left is going nuts over this article.

By whom, John Boner and the GOP congress?

Seriously, they are utterly useless, spineless cowards who serve no purpose whatsoever.

And on another note, the good people in the Dept of Justice, led by Attorney General Eric Holder, have all avowed that they will resign in mass on January 21, leaving the Department justiceless and without direction. Eric Holder is Fast and Furiously on a hell-bent mission to get out of town and retire to some cushy spot in Haiti, where he says he wants to live among those still in a state of devistation after the 7.0 earthquake on Jan 12, 2010. He will pitch his tent along side more than a million of his underpriviledged brothers and sisters in the tent-cities in and around Port-au-Prince.

“Satire, funny how satire rings can seem so real...which is why I hate satire.”

I wrote that? And I am not drunk, maybe I should be. Let me try again:

Satire, funny how satire rings so true and seems so real,which is why I hate satire. There is no humor in it.

My point was that the quotes here are satire.

The thinking among Obama, Eric Holder and everyone in the Obama Administration is this: Whitey has been in charge for generations in this country; we are now, and it’s payback time.

The difference between Reality and Satire, is indeed very dim.
