Skip to comments.Latino Groups Call for Probe of Rangel Race
Posted on 07/04/2012 5:54:58 AM PDT by Bulwinkle
A national Hispanic civil rights group is asking the Department of Justice to investigate alleged voter suppression in the Democratic primary in the 13th congressional district.
The group, LatinoJustice PRLDEF, has sent a letter to the DOJ voicing concern that Spanish-speaking voters found it difficult to cast ballots because they were unable to receive Spanish-language assistance and were turned away, or were told to vote by affidavit ballots, according to a statement by the organization.
The appeal to the DOJ by LatinoJustice, which recently was among several voter advocacy groups that sued Florida over its decision to target more than 2,600 registered voters whose citizenship was questionable, comes as veteran U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel has seen his lead over the runner-up dwindle to slightly more than 800 votes.
Some 2,000 absentee and affidavit ballots remain to be counted; the result is expected to be announced Thursday.....

Dems engaging in Voter Suppression!!!! Gotta love it!
Hey,”Latinos”....don’t hold your breath,The current Attorney Corporal only investigates gringos!
LOL...how’s that race-based voting working for you this time, Charlie?
Some 2,000 absentee and affidavit ballots remain to be counted.... One minute after the polls close, they announce the winner. Weeks later they still can’t count??!!
What a bunch of crooks.
This is going to be the equivalent of Holder having to divide by zero.
The results of race based politics preying upon the Balkinization of the USA continue.
If you cannot read English then you have no business voting.
46% of the people of New Orleans and Detroit cannot read or write any language.
Ju no count our votez cabron? We take ju sister, we take ju mujer,and make uno beeg play de playa, and mabe jeffay, you can fin’ dem later?/s
And so ends the melting pot that was America , which now succumbs to the disunity of divide and conquer, the Obama Utopian cultural mosaic......
These Hispanics haven’t a clue about what they are facing, or they would be switching to the Tea Party yesterday.
Asking the Department of "Just Us" to investigate Charlie? One of Holder's people?
This is just one district...wait until Nov...it’s going to be a three ring circus!...
I doubt there is even a slim chance the DOJ will do anything..We all know who controls there!!!
Hispanics outnumber blacks in this country
Tensions between them may be heating up as they fight over goodies etc
They are already waring in the prisons
“If people think their vote doesn’t count, if people think somebody’s stealing their votes or buying their votes or that the machine reads don’t actually record their votes, this is a real blow to the system. We need to believe in this system for it to work,” said New York Post political columnist and Fox News contributor Michael Goodwin, who has covered New York City politics for decades.”
Is he a Democrat????
It’s demeaning to Eric Holder’s people...
It is a deep, hard-driving force, striking and cutting at the very roots of all the evils which beset the people. It thinks and acts in terms of social surgery and not cosmetic cover-ups.
A People's Organization is dedicated to an eternal war. A war is not an intellectual debate, and in the war against social evils there are no rules of fair play."
Saul Alinsky; Reveille for Radicals; p. 133
A nugget from the article.
Is it any wonder that conservatives are losing.
It stands to reason that a common thug who will cheat on his taxes repeatedly will cheat in an election.
Correct me if I’m wrong...
Don’t LEGAL immigrants that become naturalized have to be able to speak and read the American English language?
How can it be that people who can not do so are allowed to vote?
Making smoothies, no doubt.
**46% of the people of New Orleans and Detroit cannot read or write any language.**
I bet they can rap though.
There are exceptions to the rule. For instance, the 20/50 rule. If you have been here 20 years or more and are over 50 years old, the “read and write English” provision is waived for naturalization.
At least that was the case when I worked for INS 10 years ago.
