Eric Holder, who needs to distract people from his fast & furious debacle, has decided to play with voter fraud. The same person who decided to ignore the New Black Panthers with bully clubs outside polling places, is very concerned that voter ID laws in various states endanger minority rights because they (the minority voters) might not have ID. Are we to trust this man to be fair?
Since when is it unreasonable to present ID when you go to vote?
Holder did praise Maine’s same day registration law, which has been a source of voter fraud cases since there is not enough time between registration and voting to check on the legitimacy of the voter.
This is in time for the 2012 election. Make no mistake, Holder plans to sue individual states who have any restrictions on voting rights.
“All eligible citizens can and should be automatically registered to vote,” and it’s the government’s “responsibility” to see that it happens, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday.
From Reuters:…Holder says in his speech that his department is still reviewing state laws, supported by Republicans, that require voters to show photo identification. He says the review will be “thorough” and “fair,” though it discusses the laws in the context of voter disenfranchisement.
Holder’s speech may intensify a conflict with congressional Republicans, who are also clashing over the Justice Department’s efforts to block state immigration laws.
Responding to Holder’s comments, Republican Senator John Cornyn said the identification laws are a constitutional way to prevent fraud. “Facing an election challenge next year, this administration has chosen to target efforts by the states to protect the democratic process,” Cornyn said…
In Mississippi, where voter fraud is rampant, 23 counties had more registered voters than there were people alive. In New Mexico, there are 64,000 cases of fraud and at least 117 are foreign nationals voting illegally. In Kansas, 50 Somali nationals were brought in to vote in the Democratic Primary. There are endless cases like these.
The voter fraud is the result of ACORN stuffing ballot boxes, illegal immigrants voting, false absentee ballots, ballots being discarded or temporarily going missing, fake ID’s and dead peoples names being used.
