The DOJ filed a complaint against Florida today to stop Florida from removing ineligible non-citizens from the voter rolls. (Yesterday DOJ, disgracing long established tradition, leaked this impending news to a sycophantic blogger.) Florida has already discovered noncitizens who voted illegally in previous elections.
The lawsuit filed today seeks to stop Florida from purging non-citizens from Florida voting rolls. No word on whether Eric Holders Justice Department will be filing criminal charges against the foreigners who illegally registered to vote. Priorities lie elsewhere.
Lets meet Jenigh Garrett, the radical DOJ Voting Section lawyer who filed the lawsuit today to stop Florida from removing non-citizens from the voter rolls. She is a long-time opponent of state election integrity laws, as are so many of the recent hires exposed by the PJ Media Every Single One series. From the report:
Jenigh Garrett: Ms. Garrett worked for approximately five years as an assistant counsel at the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (LDF), where she worked on voting-related litigation. She co-drafted the NAACP LDFs amicus brief in Crawford v. Marion County Board of Elections, claiming that voter ID laws are unconstitutional (a position the Supreme Court rejected in an opinion by Justice John Paul Stevens).
Garrett also was a member of the organizations litigation team in Hayden v. Paterson, arguing that felon disenfranchisement laws violate the Voting Rights Act (a position the Second Circuit rejected). She is a member of the American Constitution Society and recently gave a presentation at Yale Law School on The Future of Black Legal Scholarship and Activism. Although DOJs FOIA shop notably redacted her other activities on her resume, perhaps legislators in Virginia can ask her about them: she is the redistricting point of contact for the Commonwealth.
(Read at PJ Media about another lawyer on the complaint, Elise Shore).
I describe in detail in Injustice how the radical anti-election integrity agenda of the Left is now burrowed into the Voting Section at the Justice Department advancing this agenda using your tax dollars. Now these lawyers are perverting Section 8 of Motor Voter, a provision designed to fix the problems in Florida, not preserve them.
Two items of note. In the complaint, the DOJ did not bring the threatened case under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. DOJ claimed in a letter that the voter purge procedure had not been precleared by DOJ under the Voting Rights Act. People familiar with Floridas election procedures tell me that threat was baseless, that all of the laws and rules had been precleared.
Lastly, PJ Media has been reporting for two years how the Eric Holder DOJ refuses to bring Section 8 cases under Motor Voter to force states to clean up their voter rolls. Indeed, I first broke news about these corrupt instructions in July 2010, instructions which DOJ has never specifically denied, because they cant. A former Justice Department official tells me tonight it is deliciously ironic that the first and only NVRA Section 8 case brought by the Justice Department is one seeking to block the removal of ineligible voters.
Im usually a fan of delicious irony, but this latest outrage from Obamas embattled Attorney General marks a new corrupt low, even for him.
That’s the mug of a braindead, America hater right there. I can see why she’s going to sue Florida for not breaking the law.
So in other words, she’s never held a real job in her life
Think she’s bad? Check out the DOJ lawyer that set this in motion...
Hat Tip to jazusamo
We have criminals in the DOJ. Time to clean house.
Holder and the DOJ is filthy on so many levels it will take a fleet of Lysol tankers.
There ain’t enough lipstick on the planet...
It amazes me what this communists Administration will do. And there is no way to stop them. They have infiltrated so much of the power structure of America that it is almost pure communism we are dealing with. Gingrich was right, the entire court system need purging badly.
Egads, she’s a zombie!
Boy, that’s one unattractive hooker.
Excuse me....but does this citizen draw a paycheck from We the People? Or not ?
Why is our employee screwing us?And what are we gonna do about it?
This is a great campaign commercial for the Pubbies right here .
Sure is, a roll of quarters would get her attention.
It's sad that our federal government can continue to get away with the blatant corruption that's taken place since Obama took the WH. There's always been corruption but Obama and his thugs have taken it to a new level, with him it's the Chicago Way.
Thanks for the ping, Smooth.
Nothing a couple of miles of rope won’t cure. It’s green and recyclable!
The DOJ has refused to provide Florida with access to the SAVE database that contains the citizenship of suspected non citizen voters in Florida. By denying/delaying the access, (since last year), the DOJ can now say that Florida is using potentially outdated information and that it is now too late to purge the rolls because of the 90 day rule, (which Florida claims is not applicable to non-citizen purges). The delay was planned to cause this type of situation so that the purge is tied up in the courts until after the November election.
And they will be impossible to fire if the opportunity ever comes up. If it does not come up the die is cast for all time.
