Justice Department probes Pennsylvania voter ID law
Reuters ^ | 7/23/2012

Posted on 07/23/2012 7:02:32 PM PDT by markomalley

The Department of Justice is investigating whether Pennsylvania's new voter identification law discriminates against minorities, according to a letter released on Monday.

In a step toward a possible federal lawsuit under the Voting Rights Act, the Justice Department sent a letter to Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele asking for data on the state's registered voters.

Passed in 1965 during the peak of the civil rights era, the Voting Rights Act bans rules that make it more difficult for minorities to vote.

The Justice Department will analyze the Pennsylvania data to determine if voters who lack proper ID under the new law are disproportionally black or Hispanic.

Of course it’s discriminatory. Everybody knows minorities are too stupid to even breath without government help. (Except asians)

Why just last week, I noted with alarm the "Whites Only" signs on the doors of the NYS DMV office in my town.

I immediately thought "hey, that must be why I never see any black people driving a car."

Let them try, there’s no way they can make the Voting Rights Act apply to Pennsylvania. It’s not Alabama, and Obama can’t fearmonger saying Pennsylvania is going back to Jim Crow laws it never had.

The clock is running out. As Kahn said.....

“Let them eat static.”

When you do finally, after missing 3 deadlines, respond give them 1/10 of the roll and say you are looking for the rest.....just like their boss did in front of Congress.

After this election, When We Win and take back the Republic, all the DOJ employees WILL BE INVESTIGATED AND FOUND GUILTY.

When FOUND GUILTY, they need to be put in orange jump suits, and frog marched to Fort Leavenworth to serve their 20 year sentences.

During the course of the trials, ANY BUREAUCRAT who dares say: “BUT I WAS JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS.” Will be summarily hanged at the end of the day.

Nuremberg trials anyone?

Unfortunately, it really has come to this.

That is a foregone conclusion. Many Hispanic "voters" will not have ID because they are not in the country legally, and African American "voters" will have waited to get ID til some Democrat boss bribed them to bother going to the polls at all.

Why waste time on a fake investigation.
They already know they are going to file a Federal suit. Who do they think they are BS’ing.

Question to the RAT bastard demoRATs & racist commie pig, Eric Holder..... are you saying that Hispanics & blacks are too stupid to get a photo ID months in advance of the election?

Secondly I would love to run a test....load a semi tractor trailer with 12 packs of beer and cartons of cigarettes. Then announce to the ghetto crowd that they will receive a free 12 pack of beer & carton of cigarettes.... all they have to do is show a valid photo id. I would bet within 15 minutes that 999 out of a 1000 would all of a sudden be able to provide some form of photo id, no problem at all!

If the DOJ’s intent was anything other than sowing chaos these “investigations” would have been under way long ago.

Good luck, Pennsylvania! WI just had a local judge from Madison strike down our voter ID laws.

The Supreme Court has already ruled on voter ID. Is this law different from Indiana’s?

Your governor needs to have thejudge removed from the bench by cutting off his paycheck.I know he cant but that would spread the word quick to these screw judges.

PA’s voter ID law was patterned exactly after Indiana’s BECAUSE the Indiana law had already been ruled constitutional. We shall see;

the soap box is trampled
if the ballot box is broke
that leaves the cartridge box.

Yes, that evaporated quicker than a puddle in Texas in July. As I expected it would.

Oberstgruppenführer Heinrich Himmler oops, Eric Holder and his Dept of 'Just Us' won't give up will he.

First he goes after states covered by the '65 Voting Rights Act under bull___ premises. Now he's going after any state that wants to keep its Voting System HONEST with an ID law. Even if said state prevails in its own state court system.

How very .... 'Aryan' of him.

[You'd think he'd have better things to do now. Like order more Paper Shredders to destroy evidence. Or run more guns to Mexico with a new plan, like by cargo ship to Baja California.]

They will time it so that an injunction will be issued a few days before the election, leaving no time to challenge it. BamBam MUST win PA, and to win he needs no impediment to getting as many votes as he can out of Philadelphia.

You need ID to register to vote. Why wouldn’t you be able to get a photo ID to vote? Dems are just dishonest.
