Latino Groups Call for Probe of Rangel Race
Latino FOX News ^ | 7/3/2012 | Eric Shawn

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.....

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??!!

This is going to be the equivalent of Holder having to divide by zero.

Asking the Department of "Just Us" to investigate Charlie? One of Holder's people?

“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.”

ROFLMAO

Is he a Democrat????

"A People's (community) Organization is not a philanthropic plaything or a social service's ameliorative gesture.

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?

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.
