The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Monday that it will monitor polling places in two Nebraska counties during Tuesday Republican primaries for possible civil rights violations.
Attorney General Eric Holders DOJ will assign monitors to patrol polling places and will send representatives from its embattled civil rights division to enforce civil rights laws.
Former Bush administration official Ben Sasse and former State Treasurer Shane Osborn are vying Tuesday in Nebraskas Republican U.S. Senate primary. Omaha banker Sid Disndale is gaining in the three-way race, despite conservative criticism that he would give Barack Obama a blank check. Primary elections are also being held in Nebraska Tuesday for the offices of governor, attorney general and state auditor.
The Justice Department announced today that it will monitor elections on May 13, 2014, in Colfax and Douglas Counties, Nebraska, to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act and other federal voting rights statutes. The Voting Rights Act prohibits discrimination in the election process on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group, according to DOJ.
In Colfax County, the department will assign federal observers from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to monitor polling place activities based on a court order. The observers will watch and record activities during voting hours at polling locations in this jurisdiction, and Civil Rights Division attorneys will coordinate the federal activities and maintain contact with local election officials, DOJ stated. In addition, department personnel will monitor polling place activities in Douglas County. A Civil Rights Division attorney will coordinate federal activities and maintain contact with local election officials.

This is a trial run for whatever they have planned for Nov ‘14.
Holder team is bringing their own supply of pre-marked ballots to make sure that everything is on the up-and-up.
This is so phony. Voter fraud is rampant all over this country and the clowns down at the Department of Justus are worried about two counties in Nebraska. Phony, baloney, plastic banana, good time rock ‘n’ rollers. Jerks.
I hadn’t realized Nebraska was a hot bed of racism
Their power (and arrogance) knows no bounds.
Were they out in force nationally in 2012?
But...but...MSNBC said there weren’t any black republicans...
So when I go to vote for Ben Sasse and Pete Ricketts tomorrow will I have to face any DOJ thugs in Cass County? /s
Stupid federalie marxist creeps! Stay outta here!!!!
This is a real threat. Douglas County (Omaha) has one fourth of all Nebraska residents.
They will be in a position to steal this vote.
Colfax County adjacent to Douglas was just picked as a screen. It only has 11,000 residents.
Yah, if you don't have University of Nebraska gear on, they don't letcha vote.
Probably; the intention is to defend all Black people who wish to cast eight or nine votes.
Kinda like they did in Cleveland and Port St. Lucie....right?
The governor of Nebraska needs to have her own people follow Holder’s people around to make sure they don’t violate election laws themselves.
