The Obama administration on Tuesday will wade into the increasingly divisive national debate over new voting laws in several states that could depress turnout among minorities and others who helped elect the president in 2008.
With the presidential campaign heating up,Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. will deliver a speech Tuesday expressing concerns about the voter-identification laws, along with a Texas redistricting plan before the Supreme Court that fails to take into account the states burgeoning Hispanic population, he said in an interview Monday.
Holder will speak at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Libary and Museum in Austin, Tex., which honors the president who shepherded the 1965 Voting Rights Act into law.
When it comes to voting fraud, some conservatives have long argued that it is a serious problem, although others say the number of such cases is relatively low. Studies of the issue have reached different conclusions on the extent of the problem.
You constantly hear about voter fraud . . . but you dont see huge amounts of vote fraud out there, Holder said.

YEAH, especially when you look the other way!!!
Shouldn’t he be busy with a paper shredder somewhere?
He needs to be impeached.
I thought dead people were a majority.
Voter ID ONLY SUPPRESSES FRAUD!
Holder knows that organized voter fraud THRIVES on lack of Voter ID enforcement.
Same with Moter Voter and Mail In Ballots.
Fraud isn’t something you advertise Eric.
define "huge amount", crapweasel.
Well we passed a voter ID law here in GA and we are not giving it up so Holder can kiss our grits.
Let me take off my PC hat for a moment (let’s face it, I rarely wear it, I hate hats...)
If you’re really at such a stage in life that you can’t afford, or can’t be bothered to get, a F***ING $13 STATE ID...are you really in any position to make a decision that affects the very fate of your nation and your fellow citizens?
If these clowns and professional community organizers (holder, obama, etc.) truly cared about voting rights, they would channel all this effort into making sure the eligible voters all secured their legal identification for voting purposes.
Of course, that is not their goal.
If I want to vote, I have to prove it is me and that I am a citizen. Anything less should not be tolerated.
If Holder doesn’t stop all of these Voter ID laws there will be millions of voters disenfranchised like dead people, multiple voters, and many, many more!
When I go to my bank and encounter a new teller who doesn't know me, does anyone with two brain neurons to rub together think that I would resist identifying myself? If I am stopped in a traffic check, should I argue with the police officer concerning IDing myself? Try that and see what it gets you.
Impeach and prosecute the racist Socialist bastard!
I received this in an email from one of Tom Tancredo's groups/affiliates:
This is not a fantasy next week it will start to become reality.
Thats when a delegation of leftist Obama supporters will meet with the United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights in Geneva, Switzerland.
And there they will lay the groundwork to ensure the United Nations takes action in time to save Barack Obama.
This and Holder's Austin "announcement"...scary.
Of course he will, corrupt bastard.
Holder pushes for voter fraud.
corrupt Holder ping
