Skip to comments.Holder is AWOL on military voting--Justice fails to protect the votes of those who protect America
Posted on 10/01/2010 6:58:10 PM PDT by jazusamo
The Justice Department is living down to its reputation for not caring about protecting voting rights of military personnel. With 20 full-time attorneys supposedly on the task, it has failed to do as much for military voters as a ragtag team of volunteer law students has accomplished. The department's inaction is suspicious.
For months, critics have charged Justice with being reluctant to enforce the 2009 Military and Overseas Voter Enforcement Act (MOVE Act), probably because the Obama political team suspects that soldiers tend to vote Republican. The MOVE Act requires states to mail ballots at least 45 days before Election Day to military personnel and affiliated civilians stationed abroad, unless the states secure a waiver under limited circumstances and produce foolproof alternative means for ensuring military voting rights. The department insists it is rigorously enforcing this law. Its actions, however, are unconvincing.
Justice official Rebecca Wertz seemed at a February conference to encourage states to seek waivers rather than comply with the MOVE Act. The department has refused demands from Sen. John Cornyn, the Texas Republican who authored the act, to let the public know the status of any efforts to guarantee compliance. Then the department let Wisconsin off the hook by allowing the Badger State to mail ballots just 32 days in advance.

You’re not surprised, are you?
Active duty/Retiree Ping.
Not at all, we have a criminal running DOJ, IMO.
"Is there any day when the Holder-Obama's Department of "Justice"
should not be embarrassed before the American public?"
Merely the first step in the plans of the Obama regime to mitigate their losses in the November elections through voter fraud and intimidation — the disenfranchisement of the Military vote. Makes sense for the Democrats — that will certainly help them, and they know it. And AG Holder will NEVER lift a finger to legally attempt to get the Military vote counted....
This is not some passive failure to protect. It is an intentional proactive initiative to disenfranchise.
This is criminal disrespect and denial of the vote to our best people. A Daily drumbeat of this topic, a running thread. Bumperstickers?
Meanwhile buses carrying commies to the radical rally get parking priveledges at the Pentagon and special metro reroutings. The inmates are SO in charge I can merely puke.
