Florida Tells Holder to Blow it Out His A _ S

(Business Insider) — Florida state officials will continue their quest to purge purportedly ineligible people from voter-registration rolls, a representative of Secretary of State Ken Detzner said Saturday, in defiance of objections from the U.S. Justice Department and county officials who say the policy violates two federal voting laws.

On Thursday, T. Christian Herren Jr., the head of the Justice Department’s voting section, said the effort to remove voters appears to violate the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which outlaws discriminatory voting practices that disenfranchise minorities. On a list of almost 2,700 voters the state suspects are noncitizens, blacks and Latinos were disproportionately represented, according to an analysis by the Miami Herald, which concluded Democratic and independent voters are the most likely to be targeted.

Despite the warning, Detzner’s representative said on Saturday the state intends to go forward with its campaign. “We have a year-round obligation to ensure the integrity of Florida’s elections. We will be responding to (the Justice Department’s) concerns next week,” Chris Cate wrote in an email to Reuters.

Maybe it’d be better if the Fla. official was named T. Jihad Herren?

Corruption, aye, but this bloke has done nothing but grind political axes since he took office.

Most AGs will stage the occasional organized crime and/or drug bust in order to convince the public they are - ahem - actually doing the job of the nation’s chief law enforcement officer.

Nazi analogies are cheap and easy but they are appropriate when the police use the power of the state to suppress political opposition rather than solve crimes.

This IS Florida, which has a large population of blacks
and hispanics.

NOW, of those 2,700 how many ACTUALLY turned out to be
non citizens, people who should NOT have voted.

How can it be fair to the rest of the polis to have an
election influenced by non eligable voters?

You're not disenfranchising anyone if the people you are removing are dead, or don't have the legal right to vote. Talk about trying to stretch the law. The Dems are pathetic. Always trying to change the rules to suit their own selfish purpose.

It really doesn’t matter if the ineligible voters are pink or purple. All that matters is if they were ineligible. So, when looking at the stats on numbers on the rolls who were found ineligible, color or ethnicity is irrelevant.

Were they eligible, or were they not?

Simple question, Holder.

If FL is purging people who are actually eligible voters, there’s a problem.

Otherwise, there’s not.

That's the whole point. The rules are the white man's rules. Right now though, cretins like Holder are less dangerous than the Jamie Dimons, Christine Lagardes, Ben Bernankes etc. of the world. They're creating the conditions that will loose goons like Big Sis and Holder on all of us.

Is there any place where race is noted on application or the actual registration? (A)

If NO race mentioned on either; and if the number is proportionately larger for these two groups then the proportion of registered voters, it is a simple indicator that the members of the groups are the ones involved in voter fraud.

If there is no indication of “A”, the sorting by race is done after determination of ineligibility NOT before, then we can further deduce this group is involved in deception.

This is not profiling...It’ reality!

Yeah...having your vote cancelled out by an illegal or dead person on the voter roles is the ULTIMATE voter disenfranchisement! State AGs need to look our for the legit voters interests.

From the article:

Florida is among a handful of states covered by the Voters Rights Act Section V, which requires areas with a deep history of racial discrimination — mostly Southern states — to seek approval from the Justice Department or a panel of federal judges before attempting to change any voting-related policy. Five Florida counties are required to abide by that law.

Does the Privileges and Immunities clause in Article IV, Section 2 of the Constitution prohibit this (specifically referring to the Federal gov't's implementation of a rule applicable only to certain people and states), or does it prohibit merely a State from doing this?

On a list of almost 2,700 voters the state suspects are noncitizens, blacks and Latinos were disproportionately represented,

Just a wild guess as to why Latinos might be a 'disproportionate' part of the suspected 'noncitizens' on Florida's voter roles.

Maybe because Latinos are the overwhelming majority of 'noncitizens', or illegal aliens in the US?

Just a guess.

Simple question, Holder.

Despite what that liberal turd Colbert says, reality actually has a conservative bias (see Europe's economy for proof).

That most illegals purged were hispanic is merely proving statistics right in a state bordering latino countries like Cuba and Haiti.

And liberals hate statistics that actually prove common sense correct (like minority crime rate, gun ownership effectiveness vs crime, etc).

...Okay then. NOT belonging here to begin with. That’s just great. Whether lax or strict (in some states dumb clucks only need a utility bill showing a name), not being a citizen should be the major disqualification. Hey, NEVER EVER ACCEPTABLE. Frankly, since this such an awesome responsibility there should be a test before being allowed to vote...IMHO.

Good point. Every non citizen who votes disenfranchises, to some degree, the vote of a qualified citizen. Maybe the eligible voters could bring some sort of a lawsuit.

That’s what I was trying to get at, how can it be
descriminatory if the actual numbers of illegal
voters reflects a higher minority number of non
citizens voting?

You would think that anything that helps certify
the legality of our electorial process would be
welcomed by BOTH parties, that it isn’t only indicates
to me that one party has a vested interest in swaying
the system.

Wouldn’t it be great if Arizona, North Carolina, Florida - all states threatened and bullied by Holder work together and push back. If they all decide to tell him NO, what exactly can he do without seriously hurting himself and Obama’s chances. Maybe the Secretary of States and Governors in these states “get” that they are fighting for their existence and that four more years of this administration is unthinkable. If only . . .

I don’t know if I agree with that. He may have done more dishonest things because his boss is an out of control psycho who knows no bounds. Janet Reno may have done less criminal acts in number but they were real doozies in their time. The Branch Davidians, Elian Gonzales, the Wall to name a few.

Absolutely! For a couple of cycles kept a thread on the articles dealing with voter fraud as reported...where, when, who etc, (IIRC Alamo gal did something similar—better organized and more comprhelnsive— before that)
Ran acrossed it the other day.
Some states have gone far to correct the problem. (mine included) Others are trying. We are making progress...Everyone is happy but the Progressives! How ironic!

Could that be because ACORN and the Democrat party have registered illegal aliens, felons, non-residents, and dead people? Kudos to FL for insisting on their right to clean up the voting rolls. It’s time every state does.
