Obama DOJ to Florida: Let The Dead Vote! …Update: Florida to Obama DOJ: Buzz Off

Let the dead vote!
On Friday, the Holder Justice Department ordered the State of Florida to halt its purge of dead, illegal and ineligible voters.

Eric Holder believes the ‘sacred’ right to commit voter fraud vote is under nationwide assault.

Katie Pavlich at Townhall reported:

A simple way to help prevent voter fraud and election abuse is for states to purge voter rolls. What does this mean? Getting rid of names on voter rolls of people ineligible to vote such as illegal aliens, dead people, duplicates, etc. For nearly a year, Florida election officials have asked the Department of Homeland Security for access to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement database in order to take illegal aliens and non-citizens off Florida voter rolls. Not surprisingly, DHS has been dragging its feet and has yet to comply with the request and now, the Department of Justice is stepping into the purging process and ordering Florida, a vital swing state, to stop.

The Justice Department sent a letter to Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner Thursday evening demanding the state cease purging its voting rolls because the process it is using has not been cleared under the Voting Rights Act, TPM has learned.

DOJ also said that Florida’s voter roll purge violated the National Voter Registration Act, which stipulates that voter roll maintenance should have ceased 90 days before an election, which given Florida’s August 14 primary, meant May 16.

Five of Florida’s counties are subject to the Voting Rights Act, but the state never sought permission from either the Justice Department or a federal court to implement its voter roll maintenance program.

UPDATE: (By Andrea Ryan)  In 2008, the Supreme Court ruled that voter ID laws do not place an undue burden on voters.  But, we already know how the Obama Administration feels about the Supreme Court.

UPDATE: Florida state officials responded to the request today. They will continue their quest to purge purportedly ineligible people from voter-registration rolls, a representative of Secretary of State Ken Detzner said Saturday.

    Boleslaw Wawrzyniec, a ward boss of the 1930s, was lying on his death bed giving final instructions. When asked where he’d like to be buried, he answered,

  • Mad Hatter

    This is the only way the Democrats can win, force acceptance of allowing non citizens, felons, and/or people with no Photo ID to vote.

    If you ever notice how the Democrats and their cheerleading squad in the Alinsky Media act when they talk about Voter ID Laws? They start becoming unhinged. In their world anyone who wants to reduce the chances of voter fraud is the new Jim Crow, and wants to take away minorities, the elderly, and the poor peoples right to vote.

    All the left can do is lie, smear, and misrepresent Voter ID Laws and the people that back them. The left knows that Voter ID Laws means their days of duplicate voters, and graveyard petitions will be over. Why else would they want a status quo, outdated voting format to continue?

    Holder..the DoJ, they pretty much get away with anything they want to without any fear of censure or indictment and apparently Congress doesn’t have the chops to snap the lid shut on them. Gov Scott should tell Holder to take a long walk off a short pier. Enforce the law.

    It is a travesty that Holder sits at the head of the Dept of Justice. He was placed there by Obama, because they share the same hatred of our democratic way of life.

    Stan:
    Maybe Bush won, maybe Gore won.
    Either way America won by not having the Goracle as POTUS.
    Seems you’re of the “Dead Voter Set” so you likely disagree.
    Good luck with your boy Obama.

  • Economan

    Holder is a criminal and is hoping more criminals vote for his boss. This is a perversion of real justice and is another reason why he should be in prison.

  • the only way there will be any concern to clean up the fruadulent voter rolls is if the republican party starts to register fake voters. then and only then will the democratic party-media complex want these fake voters removed from the voter rolls.

    [But communists could not be wrong. After all, their knowledge was scientific, based on historical materialism, an understanding of the dialectical process in nature and human society, and a materialist (and thus realistic) view of nature. Marx has shown empirically where society has been and why, and he and his interpreters proved that it was destined for a communist end. No one could prevent this, but only stand in the way and delay it at the cost of more human misery. Those who disagreed with this world view and even with some of the proper interpretations of Marx and Lenin were, without a scintilla of doubt, wrong. After all, did not Marx or Lenin or Stalin or Mao say that. . . . In other words, communism was like a fanatical religion. It had its revealed text and chief interpreters. It had its priests and their ritualistic prose with all the answers. It had a heaven, and the proper behavior to reach it. It had its appeal to faith. And it had its crusade against nonbelievers.

    What made this secular religion so utterly lethal was its seizure of all the state’s instrument of force and coercion and their immediate use to destroy or control all independent sources of power, such as the church, the professions, private businesses, schools, and, of course, the family.]

    [Perhaps Congress can invite former President Jimmy Carter to provide expert testimony to support states voter ID laws because it appears by their copious years of reporting, that it has been his Carter Center’s decades-long international experience that voters adequately identifying themselves to election officials provides “additional safeguards”, “a substantial degree of security and confidence in the electoral” system, no matter what country, race, what color, what language.]

    Holder Upholds Voter Fraud

    {;;]The DOJ is run by a man, Eric Holder, who explained (while in his prior position as U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia) a not-so-subtly racist paragraph (written by a Harlem preacher) that he carries in his wallet, in these terms:

    It really says that… I am not the tall U.S. Attorney, I am not the thin United States Attorney. I am the black United States attorney. And he was saying that no matter how successful you are, there’s a common cause that bonds the black United States Attorney with the black criminal or the black doctor with the black homeless person.{..}

    The left’s constant refrain is that Voter ID laws suppress voter turnout, especially of lower-income and minority voters. DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz offered this gem of race-baiting: “you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally — and very transparently — block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic candidates than Republican candidates.” Bill Clinton has made similar inflammatory remarks.

    Despite the fraud-supporting industry’s claims of voter suppression, there is little credible data to support Democrats’ “sky is falling” rhetoric. For example, a study by Columbia University professors who say in their paper that “our sympathies lie with the plaintiffs in the voter ID cases” concludes that “the existing science regarding vote suppression [is] incomplete and inconclusive.”

    According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the claims of minority voter suppression are not borne out by the facts: “In Georgia, black voter turnout for the midterm election in 2006 was 42.9 percent. After Georgia passed photo ID, black turnout in the 2010 midterm rose to 50.4 percent. Black turnout also rose in Indiana and Mississippi after photo IDs were required.”
    {..}

    THIS WAS WRITTEN IN March of this year. Holder is getting away with this because he is DOJ in a Democratic Administration. Problem, we better hope that their is a low Obama turnout. This administration is just short of committing a crime. I just wonder if there is anything anyone can do about this before the November elections. Sort of doubtful. Don’t ya think! Pathetic.

    2012 Voter Integrity Act.

    {..}

    Judicial Watch has uncovered documents showing that, rather than taking action to enforce Section 8 of the NVRA, the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) is now working with ACORN-front Project Vote, Barack Obama’s former employer, to push for strict enforcement of Section 7 of the NVRA relating to welfare office voter registration obligations. The purpose of this campaign is evidently to use voter registration laws to register greater numbers of low-income voters, widely considered to be an important voting demographic for the Obama presidential campaign.

    Policy changes prompted by stricter enforcement of Section 7 have resulted in increased incidents of voter registration errors. For example, a separate Judicial Watch investigation found that the percentage of invalid voter registration forms from Colorado public assistance agencies was four times the national average after Project Vote successfully forced the state to implement new policies for increasing the registration of public assistance recipients during the 2008 and 2010 election seasons.

    Judicial Watch notes in its letters that while Attorney General Eric Holder appears intent on enforcing Section 7 of the NVRA, which will yield an increased risk of voter fraud, he apparently has no interest in enforcing Section 8 to ensure clean elections: “While you may be aware that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has prioritized enforcement of Section 7 of the NVRA, which seeks to expand opportunities to register to vote, the Attorney General has not demonstrated any similar interest in prioritizing enforcement of the list maintenance provisions of Section 8 of the NVRA. Nonetheless, Section 8 is an important counterpart to Section 7. The two provisions represent a carefully crafted compromise by the U.S. Congress to increase both voter registration and the integrity of voter rolls.”

    “President Obama and the Holder Justice Department evidently have no interest in clean elections this year, so this responsibility has now fallen to Judicial Watch. And given the rampant election fraud that occurred during the last two election cycles, this is a matter of the highest priority as we head into the 2012 election season. It is simply impossible to have any faith in the integrity of an election where dead people remain on the voting rolls. This is a recipe for voter fraud and stolen elections,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

    There is no integrity. Not here, not in this administration.

    Wis. Leftist Group’s Mailing Tries to Shame Non-Voters by Revealing Their Names to Neighbors

    Friday evening, Madison, Wisconsin blogger Ann Althouse reported receiving (HT Instapundit) an “Incredibly creepy mail today from the Greater Wisconsin Political Fund.” She has a put up an image of what she received with names and addresses redacted (except for her name). It’s a list which includes Althouse and many of her neighbors indicating who has and hasn’t voted in the last two elections.

    Unsurprisingly, the Greater Wisconsin Political Fund is the political fundraising arm of the Greater Wisconsin Committee, both of which lean very left. Both support the effort to recall Badger State Governor Scott Walker. Both appear likely to get a virtually free pass from the establishment press. Althouse’s reaction follows the jump:

    … be assured, this was a list of real names and addresses of people who live near me, with the information about whether they voted in the last 2 elections. This is an effort to shame and pressure people about voting, and it is truly despicable. Your vote is private, you have a right not to vote, and anyone who tries to shame and an harass you about it is violating your privacy, and the assumption that I will become active in shaming and pressuring my neighbors is repugnant.

    Not voting is a valid choice. If you don’t have a preference in the election, don’t vote. If you think no one deserves your vote, don’t vote.

    This may be the most disgusting thing I have ever received in the mail.

    Two obvious observations:

    I’ll bet that the GWPF isn’t sending these mailers to conservative and Republican areas of Wisconsin or (if it’s possible to determine) conservative or Republican households.
    If a conservative or Republican group attempted this kind of shame-your-neighbors tactic, it would already have received saturation wire service and TV news coverage. My bet is that we’ll see little if anything about it in the establishment press in the coming days beyond what Christian Schneider, who also received the mailing, has reported at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Yankee Review blog.

    One never knows in a election such as this with no real precedent, but the mailing appears to be a desperation tactic by leftists who sense that they’re likely to lose on Tuesday and are trying to shore up a resigned, apathetic base.

    So will Tom Barrett repudiate this tactic?

    New Bible strips ‘God,’ ‘Jesus,’ ‘angels’

    [A new Bible translation released by Thomas Nelson changes the nouns
    for God, Jesus Christ and angels to Eternal One, the Anointed One and
    a messenger of God. But critics say the project that supposedly is
    “attuned to the times” is just a Gospel that’s been “watered down.”

    The Voice translation, a joint project between Thomas Nelson and the Ecclesia Bible Society, was released this spring.

    The translation comes at the same time that critics contend Wycliffe Bible Translators is changing the names for God and Jesus to appease a Muslim target audience.]

    :iow: Barack Hussein Obama’s name will be in future Bibles
    that will be mandated by the One World Government :aka:
    IslaMarxist UN.. 🙁

    but hey, forget me & my opinions,

    Too many people are ignorant of or insufficiently informed about the extent to which the present socialists in power in America will go to avoid their losing control of the country through honest elections.

    It is arguable that America’s “silent majority” has been quietly overwhelmed during the past several years by those who hate America and have now gained control the Executive branch, Senate, Department of Justice, all with the enthusiastic support of the majority of the mass media. Upon fully realizing this abomination, the good people of America will scream “What happened?????” Their cries will go unheard by the powerful.

    The November election is the tipping point for the future of democracy in America.
