Eric Holder’s Protection of Voter Fraud

Pages: 1 2

Moreover, minority voter turnout has actually increased in states that have implemented voter ID laws. In Georgia, for example, which enacted a photo ID law in 2008, the number of African-American voters has increased more than ten percent after the new law went into effect.

Given all that, it’s not surprising then to find that voter photo ID laws have engendered widespread bi-partisan and bi-racial support, evidenced by a December 2011 Rasmussen poll which found 70 percent of likely US voters believing that voters “should be required to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to cast their ballot.”

Yet, neither popular will nor common sense appears to sway Attorney General Holder who, days before the DOJ rejected the South Carolina voter ID law in December, said we must “call on our political parties to resist the temptation to suppress certain votes in the hope of attaining electoral success.”

The reality, of course, is that voter ID laws have nothing do with racism and everything to do with winning elections, in particular the re-election of President Obama.

Democratic Representative Donna Christensen of the Congressional Black Caucus made that point when she said in January that voter ID laws “whether racially based or not, is a direct attempt to not only undermine the election process, but a specific attempt to derail what surely would be and ought to be the re-election of Barack Obama.”

For his part, Democratic Representative Charles Rangel said he wasn’t sure if the voter ID laws are being advanced due to “the color of the President” or because Obama “received record-breaking participation by the very same people that they’re making it difficult to vote.”

So, given those two comments, it wasn’t too surprising when Judicial Watch recently announced that documents it had obtained through the Freedom of Information Act show the DOJ and Obama White House partnering with ACORN-affiliated Project Vote on a national campaign to use the NVRA to register a key voting demographic for the Obama 2012 re-election campaign: recipients of public assistance programs.

To that end, since 2008 Project Vote has been using the threat of DOJ lawsuits under Section 7 of the NVRA — which relates to welfare office voter registration obligations — to pressure officials in various states to change policies and procedures to increase voter registration among public assistance recipients, such as those who receive food stamps, welfare and unemployment.

Since 2008 Project Vote and ACORN (now renamed the Affordable Housing Centers of America) has successfully pressured officials in Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, Georgia, New Mexico, and Colorado to implement these new policies. In the case of Colorado, those changes have led to the state having four times the national average of invalid voter registration forms.

It should be noted that Project Vote and ACORN have both been linked to massive voter registration fraud with at least 70 ACORN/Project Vote employees having been convicted of voter registration fraud in a dozen states since 2006.

Moreover, a 2009 House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform report found approximately one-third of the 1.2 million new registrations turned in by Project Vote and ACORN in 2008 to be fraudulent.

Not surprisingly, despite those allegations, the Obama administration failed to pursue a criminal investigation against these groups, claiming they had broken no laws but had merely engaged in “questionable hiring and training practices.”

That 2009 decision coincided at the same time the Obama Justice Department refused to go forward with a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panthers who were videotaped carrying clubs and baseball bats, shouting racial slurs and issuing threats to intimidate Philadelphia voters during the 2008 election.

So, given the Obama administration’s lackluster commitment to ensuring the integrity of the electoral system, its stance on preventing the enactment of photo ID laws led Judicial Watch President Tom Fritton to recently conclude, “President Obama and the Holder Justice Department evidently have no interest in clean elections this year,” adding, “This is a recipe for voter fraud and stolen elections.”

Unfortunately, it’s a recipe that continues to faithfully serve and nourish the electoral prospects of the Obama administration.

    The governor of South Carolina also made state-owned cars and drivers available to help people get to to Department of Motor Vehicles so they could get a (free) state-issued ID.

    Very, very few people signed up for the rides.

      Which makes Democrats just full of excuses.

  • CollegePoor

    There is only one reason to be opposed to showing a photo ID when voting, and that reason means that you support the possibility of voter fraud.

    • Jobe

      I agree completely. With the preponderance of required picture I.D.'s for virtually everything from drivers licences to DVD rentals, there can be no legitimate reason stated by Holder and his criminal justice outfit for opposing. This is just another proof that the government is the new mafia. Holder is a bald faced liar and, legally speaking, probably an accomplice before and after the fact of murder. That this horrible person should hold the office of the highest ranked law enforcement officer in the country is appalling.

    I have to provide ID to purchase cold medicine that's now kept behind the counter. I have to provide ID to purchase alcohol. Stinky (BO) can't win the 2012 election without cheating, but he doesn't care. His minions don't either. Expect an attempt to repeal the 22nd ammendment sometime after January.

    I contend that if you do not pay taxes you should have no say in how tax revenues are spent, meaning if you don't pay taxes, for whatever reason (disabled, unemployed, retired, on welfare, etc.) you shouldn't be allowed to vote. Why should you have say in how other people’s money is spent? Immediately after this is law the House and Senate will straighten out. Their entire strategy will change; no longer will they placate the entitlement class but rather they will be more austere with the monies of those that can vote for them…and against them. This will have more of a "readjustment" effect on the entire voting system than a mere photo ID requirement.

    What is important is to know that this president and his minions will be attempting to hijack this election. Therefore we need to make sure that everyone who can vote for whatever other canidate is running against Obama VOTES on election day. No more sitting this one out because we don't like everything that the Republican canidate stands for.

    We cannot afford to have this man as president for four more years. Just think what he has accomplished in the first four years and the damage it has caused. What would this man do to ruin this country without worring about running for re-election? Just the thought of him being able to appoint another Supreme Court Judge makes me shiver with concern and despair.

    Frankly, with adequate identification or not, many who would vote in this country today bring to the polling place less discernment, less civic awareness, and fewer scruples than an average corpse. That notwithstanding, however, it remains prudent for the country at large to at least be able to identify the minions and morons who plead for more bread and circuses.

    Yet further evidence that the leftist cabal is using race to coverup and justify their criminal syndicate.

    OLYMPIA, Wash. – Some 24 million voter registrations in the United States contain significant errors, including about 1.8 million dead people still on the rolls and many more yet approved to vote in multiple states, according to a report released Tuesday. See Foxnews site.

    Holder has to make sure that the 37,000 dead people in South Carolina vote for Obama this November.

  • Bessie

    Thier argument that blacks are being discriminated against because they don't/can't get an i.d. is INSULTING and RACIST…The state has said that if someone does not have an i.d. they can get one an NO cost…If the Repulicans ever said that blacks were not smart enough to acquire an i.d., they would never hear the end of it and WHY does Holder gets away with continuing to insult his own people??? How long will Black Americans take the insults from the racist Eric Holder???

  • Maxie

    Make no mistake, vote fraud is the center piece of the MarxiCrat's 2012 re-elect Obama campaign. A few key districts in a few swing states is all that's required to steal the election These will be easily identified by the scowling, baton-wielding New Black Panther "poll watchers" standing outside making sure everything goes by "plan". If attempts are made to thwart "the plan" expect mayhem.The GOP will be hiding under their desks.

    If they are eleced by the dead and illegals, let them be the representatives of the dead and the illegals.

  • Laura

    If the surpeme court already ruled on this then how is Holder able to disallow the states to do this. Obama and his regime really have no respect for our laws. They trample our laws and constituion on a daily basis and no one stops them!!! How is this allowed to happen in the USA?

    The pattern of attacks in the middle east, both by country and by position to Israel, have consistently indicated attacks on Sunni Muslims. Sunnis dominate the middle east significantly (85%:15%) and are historically more peaceful and more tolerant of Israel. This is such a deal for the shiites. Never before have they had the chance to overtake the muslim world, let alone the ENTIRE world !
    OBL, a Sunni, was a threat to the shiite world. Obama used our grievance to take him out and become a hero. He couldn't care less about 911.
    Taqiyya is the motto of this administration. It is well known that muslims are allowed to deceive for Allah.
    He is taking the U.S. out slowly so as to go unnoticed while we are caught up in discussions of the distractions.

    And, of course obama is a good shiite partner to Amedinajhad, the barbaric leader of Iran and is placing increasing numbers of muslim brotherhood members, shiite terrorists, in the U.S.White House.
    Our media only speaks of terrorism using the Taliban and Al-Queda. We know these groups are offshoots of the muslim brotherhood.
    The plan is barbaric. Steal all of the money. Then, let the blood flow. How perfect to counter the most sophisticated and educated society in history. Foolishly unsuspecting. Remember, Greece and Rome.

    …and Alinsky. We need Newt to stop this.

    So, who is responsible for stopping fraud and corruption when it is exposed? And, if those responsible are incapable or indifferent then who can make them accountable, and to whom? The only time politicians fear the will of the people is during elections at which time they will promise anything to get elected. The Romans didn't concern themselves with the treatment of slaves until Spartacus roused 70,000 of them to oppose Roman fraud, corruption and tyranny.
