Or, why Eric Holder will remain in office until 2013 at least.

DrJohn says a pair of articles from the Washington Times make clear that the White House has a plan for the 2012 election, and that is to guarantee victory for Obama regardless of the outcome of the vote.  A large part of it depends on Eric Holder and his continual bastardization of the law.

The first comes from Robert Knight and his account of why democrats despise voter id laws:

Assistant AG Thomas Perez, the same official who terminated the Black Panther voter intimidation case, ordered South Carolina to stop enforcing its voter photo ID law.  South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson explained precisely why the law is necessary:

The state Department of Motor Vehicles audited a state Election Commission report that said 239,333 people were registered to vote but had no photo ID.  The DMV found that 37,000 were deceased, more than 90,000 had moved to other states, and others had names not matched to IDs.  That left only 27,000 people registered without a photo ID, but who could vote by signing an affidavit as to their identity.

Contrary to left wing claims, requiring photo ID has not been shown to suppress voter ID:

A bipartisan Commission on Federal Election Reform in 2005 chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former U.S. Secretary of State James A. Baker III found no evidence that requiring photo IDs would suppress the minority vote.  The panel recommended a national photo ID system and a campaign to register voters.

The second article comes from Jeffrey Kuhner.  Against the backdrop of the Carter/Baker report (of which Holder appears to be completely ignorant) Eric Holder plays the race card for South Carolina:

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. claims Jim Crow is returning.  In a recent speech, Mr. Holder said that attempts by states to pass voter identification laws will disenfranchise minorities, rolling back the clock to the evil days of segregation.  He said that a growing number of minorities fear that "the same disparities, divisions and problems" now afflict America as they did in 1965 prior to the Voting Rights Act.  According to the Obama administration, our democracy is being threatened by racist Republicans.  Hence, the Justice Department must prevent laws requiring a photo ID to vote from being enacted.

Holder’s argument has no foothold in reality.

Kuhner points out that Holder’s real problem is that photo ID laws will impair ACORN’s ability to conduct fraud:

Mr. Holder evidently wants to scuttle ID laws because he knows which organization will be hurt most: ACORN.  For years, community activist groups, such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, have engaged in massive electoral fraud -- registering illegal aliens, offering bribes to numerous politically disinterested people in the inner cities as inducements to vote and pushing underage and multiple voting.  Election reform, therefore, is a stake aimed at the heart of Democratic corruption and ACORN’s power.  Clean up the voter rolls and Obama’s re-election is in serious jeopardy.

Free photo ID cards are made available to anyone who needs one in South Carolina as are absentee votes for those who would trouble getting to the polls.  Additionally, in blocking the South Carolina law Holder runs afoul of stare decisis:

Moreover, the Supreme Court already has ruled on the issue -- upholding state voter ID laws.  In the 2008 Crawford v. Marion County Election Board decision, the high court held that an Indiana law mandating photo identification at the voting booth was indeed constitutional.  If it is good enough for the Supreme Court and the overwhelming majority of the states, then it should be for Holder as well.

Holder claims that requiring a photo ID is tatamount to a poll tax but that is laughable:

"He has a particularly hard time explaining how the South Carolina requirement of government-issued photo identification amounts to a 'poll tax' when the state has also made provisions to provide that identification, free of charge.  Hear that, Mr. Attorney General?  The only thing the voter has to do is show up and get his or her photo taken.  And if that’s too much darn trouble well, then, that person can do something else on election day."

Why is too burdensome to show up and obtain a photo ID but not too burdensome to show up to vote?

The ducks are aligning in a row.  Blocking the South Carolina law will allow ACORN and other left wing operations to run amuck with voter fraud.  The problem is that election fraud is a Federal offense, and that’s where Holder becomes critical.  I fully expect no end to election chicanery on the part of the ACORN and the left, whether it involves "finding" lost votes as in Minnesota, printing out enough democrat ballots to guarantee a victory, forging signatures, or forging more signatures.  I also expect that Holder would dismiss out of hand all claims beneficial to Obama and democrats and pursue only those in which the outcomes favored Republicans.

Ultimately the job of the Attorney General of the United States is protect the law from abuse but it is painfully clear that Eric Holder was appointed to protect abuse from the law.

Justice John Paul Stevens wrote:

”There is no question about legitimacy or importance of a state ‘s interest in counting only eligible voters.”

The integrity of the vote means nothing to Holder.  Eric Holder would not know integrity if it bit him in the ass.

And that’s exactly why he was appointed.

Does South Carolina have a next step?  Meaning, is there a way for SC to push the issue beyond the DOJ and have it heard by a state or federal court to get the ruling reversed?

Obama is trying to keep Holder as DOJ because as Leo Donofrio pointed out, if another U.S. Attorney who is not beholden to Obama is appointed, decides to pursue the Quo Warranto action in the DC District Court, then it is over for Obama and his Usurpation on a federal level.  You have to understand, the coup de tat co-conspirators do not want the truth to come out and hold them accountable for treason, jail, etc....

Evil doers, Like Chester Arthur, have to have co-conspirators to allow this lie to stay in tact.  That is what is happening.

Asking for an I.D. before voting is racist, but you need a government I.D. to buy drain cleaner  
  
Mike Opelka asks, does that sound like a joke?
  
It’s not a joke.  It‘s the reality in Barack Obama’s home state.
  
Illinois has a new law that took effect on January 1 requiring all people who purchase drain cleaners or any caustic substances to provide a government issued photo ID.  And retailers now must ask for identification from those buying drain cleaners and maintain extensive records of which caustic products have been purchased, in what amounts, and by whom.
  

The law came about after two Illinois women were burned by acid attacks back in 2008.  One of the women later admitted to burning herself with acid, but the law was still pushed through the system.

And so, because of one random crime where acid was used to burn a victim, thousands of people will be forced to show identification when they purchase drain cleaners, and countless hours of business time will be spent filling out, maintaining and monitoring the government mandated forms associated with each purchase.  Additionally, any person carrying caustic chemicals can be charged with a Class 4 felony in Illinois. (Class 4 felonies can carry fines up to $25,000 and 1-3 years in jail.)
  

The Illinois drain cleaner law is just one of the 40,000 new laws that took effect in the new year.  For the record, the 40,000 new laws are a 29% increase over the previous year.
  

If it is considered “racist” or “discrimination” to ask a voter for a photo ID before they are allowed to cast a ballot, why is it not racist to ask for a government issued ID card when you want to buy drain cleaner or pay for your gasoline with cash?

Eric Holder, Voter ID, and the Chicago Way
 
PJ Media says if I hear one more hysterical outburst from some liberal, whose brain is hotwired to Attorney General Eric Holder’s mouth, about Jim Crow returning to South Carolina, I’m going to disconnect my television cable.  It seems this type of mindless volcanic eruption is a consequence of South Carolina requiring one of five forms of identification in order for someone to exercise the franchise.  One of these means of identification South Carolina makes available free, in addition to providing free rides to the polls for anyone who asks.
 
As Eric Holder -- the brains behind both the Fast and Furious gun-running scam and the decision to vacate a conviction of Black Panthers who stood at a Philadelphia polling place harassing white voters -- would tell you, South Carolina is not interested in safeguarding the integrity of the franchise.  Those southerners are just trying to prevent minorities from voting.  The hard-won battle over the Voting Rights Act is being overturned.  Liberals need to prepare to resist or face a return to the ugly days of Jim Crow!
 

So, what’s really going on here?  Liberals love to wax unbearably about culture, but they never want to ask the difficult questions about how one’s socialization into a political culture influences one’s view of the political world, or how that socialization shapes the way the struggle for political power is fought.
  
Obama’s Chicago is notorious for its corrupt voting practices.  In fact, one of the latest political jokes in Chicago is that there is now empirical and incontrovertible evidence that Muammar Gaddafi and Osama bin Laden are both dead.  Their names recently appeared on the city’s voting rolls.
 
In Obama’s world, elections are not contested; they are manipulated.  In the 2008 Iowa caucuses, red and white chartered buses with Illinois license plates carried African Americans from Chicago to vote in Iowa.  Obama’s ability to show that he could win in a rural, white, and somewhat conservative state like Iowa wasn’t a miracle; it was election engineering, the Chicago Way.
 
In anticipation of a hard-fought contest in 2012, Barack Obama wants to make sure that there is significant margin for voter fraud, especially getting illegal immigrants to vote.  No one needs to tell you how illegal immigrants will vote.  And pro-Obama organizations, like ACORN, have traditionally engaged in massive election fraud.  Anything that enhances the integrity of the voting process works against Obama.
 
And here in his hometown is the latest foray into election engineering, courtesy of former presidential chief of staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, with assistance from Chicago’s African-American aldermen:
 
Because of strong demographic changes, Chicago is undergoing its decennial redistricting with a vengeance.  The biggest demographic change is the drop in the percent of African Americans, an incredible 19%.  Other ethnic groups have been stable with the exception of a rise in the city’s Hispanic population.  So, one would expect that under the standard redistricting principle of wards being carved up into equal population units, African Americans would be a lower percentage in some wards than they have been and Hispanics would be higher.  The total population of any ward, however, would remain roughly equivalent.
 
In an effort to keep African-American aldermen in power, Emanuel and his cronies have cut up the wards into different sizes, with white wards on the north and lakefront each having 56,000 inhabitants and black wards having closer to 51,000.  Making the white wards larger and thinning out the black wards preserves the wards of African-American alderman, while disenfranchising whites.  This is racial discrimination.
 
Like the Black Panthers in Philadelphia intimidating whites at the polls, this is not going to be high on Holder’s lists of concerns.  Nor are liberals in Chicago, or elsewhere, going to have an apoplectic fit over it.  Don’t count on the ACLU hauling Emanuel into federal court or even standing in front of the television camera’s lens to denounce it, as the ACLU has done with South Carolina’s attempt to bring integrity to the voting process.
 

When it comes to South Carolina -- or any other state -- trying to preserve the honesty of the electoral process by requiring some form of voter identification, watch out.  Voter integrity is the last thing Obama, his Justice Department, and his base want for 2012.

Democrat says voter fraud "a normal political tactic"

Eric Shawn is reporting that Michael LoPorto arrived at the Rensselaer County Courthouse in Troy, N.Y. on Tuesday for his trial, which accuses him of being part of a “massive” voter fraud scheme.
 
The former Democratic city councilman and popular local restaurant owner appeared jaunty and relaxed as he answered a series of questions from Fox News -- despite facing felony allegations that could send him to prison for seven years.
 
"Did you do anything wrong?"
 
"No."
 
"Did you forge any absentee ballots?"
 
"No, I did not."
 
"Did you steal an election, or try to steal one?"
 
"Again, you asked me that before, I told you no!"
 

For a year now, LoPorto has steadfastly maintained his innocence, along with current Rensselaer County Democratic Elections Commissioner Edward McDonough, who refused to comment on the case Tuesday.  They are the first indicted officials to be tried in a widespread investigation that has implicated eight Democrats, including county and city elected officials and party operatives.  Four defendants have already pleaded guilty to a variety of charges, and what has already unfolded exposes just how easy it could be for political insiders to illegally manipulate the electoral system.
 
Voters told Fox News they never filled out absentee ballot applications for the 2009 Working Families Party primary, and were later stunned to learn the applications were, in fact, turned in to the Board of Elections, with ballots cast in their names.  Democratic candidates routinely try to secure the Working Families electoral line to obtain more votes in the general election.  The party was associated with the now-defunct community group ACORN.
 
"Jackals prey upon the weakest member of the herd.  That's what happened here," LoPorto's attorney Michael Feit said of the guilty pleas in which former officials admitted forging ballot applications and submitting them as legitimate votes.
  

.....
  

Anthony DeFiglio, a Democratic Committeeman who pleaded guilty to falsifying business records, told state police investigators that such fraud is actually "an ongoing scheme and it occurs on both sides of the aisle.  The people who are targeted live in low-income housing and there is a sense that they are a lot less likely to ask any questions...  What appears as a huge conspiracy to nonpolitical persons is really a normal political tactic."
 
Anthony Renna, another longtime Democratic operative and party committeeman, admitted to forging an absentee ballot application. He said the process of handing in forged ballots and fake votes ensures that "ballots are voted correctly."
 
"I knew that the actual voters had not voted the ballots or signed the envelopes, but that did not concern me.  I am not the ballot police," Renna said in a statement to police.  "I have been present when 'ballots were voted correctly' by party operatives.  Voted correctly is a term used for a forged application or ballot."
 
According to transcripts, Renna said, “I have been asked if I ever discuss forging ballots/applications with anyone and whether any ballots/applications were ever forged in front of me.  The answer is no, because if two people know a secret, it is one too many.  There is a saying in politics, 'I can't rob a bank with you.'  This saying refers to someone who can't be trusted."

Continue reading here . . .
 

The Democrat's mottos -- "party before country" and "the end justifies the means."
  

And the charge that Republicans do it to is crap.  There may be "some" Republican shenanigans during election, but for Democrats, like the man says, "... is really a normal political tactic."

New York isn’t the only state with an Obama petition problem
   

Allegations of petition fraud in Indiana made the news in December.

Charity Rorie, a mother of four, sat in her Mishawaka, Ind., kitchen, stunned that her name appeared on a 2008 Democratic presidential primary petition for then-candidate Barack Obama.

“That’s not my signature,” she told Fox News, saying her signature is “absolutely” a fake.  She also said she was troubled someone forged both her signature and that of her husband, Jeff, and listed personal details such as their address and birthdays.

”It’s scary,” Rorie said.  “It’s shocking.  It definitely is illegal.  A lot of people have already lost faith in politics and the whole realm of politics, so that just solidifies all of our worries and concerns.”

The chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party announced his resignation Monday, as investigators probe allegations of election fraud stemming from the 2008 Democratic presidential primary.

Dan Parker, who served for seven years, did not cite the scandal as a reason for his decision.  But the uproar over possible fraud in a race for the White House has already claimed the job of one county Democratic Chairman, who sources say was forced out because of the allegations.

Numerous signatures on petitions that placed then-candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the party’s primary ballot were allegedly forged and then certified by the St. Joseph County Voter Registration Office in South Bend.

Former Obama staffer busted for steraling Iowa Secretary of State's identity
 
Kevin Hall is reporting that Barack Obama’s 2008 Iowa New Media Director was arrested Friday for attempting to use the identities of Secretary of State Matt Schultz, and/or his brother Thomas, with the intent to falsely implicate the Secretary Schultz in illegal or unethical behavior.  Zach Edwards, 29, of Des Moines, currently works for Link Strategies, a Democrat-affiliated organization with ties to Iowa Senator Tom Harkin.  Edwards is the Director of New Media for Link Strategies.
 

The Secretary of State’s office discovered the alleged crime and reported it to authorities.  Edwards turned himself in to the Iowa DCI agents Friday afternoon.  He was charged with identity theft, a misdemeanor, and booked into the Polk County jail. Edwards posted $2,000 bail and was released later on Friday.  He faces up to two years in prison.
  
Zach Edwards’ bio on Link Strategies website says he joined the Obama campaign in early 2007 as an intern in Nevada.  He eventually joined the New Media department and directed their operations in five other primary states.  He was the Iowa Director of New Media for Barack Obama’s general election campaign.  After the election, Edwards joined Link Strategies, “where he provides innovative web-based research tools, video analysis and production, and web-based communication tools to assist our clients,” according to the bio.
  
Those clients include Iowa Senator Tom Harkin.  On the Link Strategies testimonial page, Harkin credits Link Strategies for his electoral success.  “The folks at Link Strategies have been helping me win campaigns since 1996.  Whether it is managing campaigns or handling research, their specialty is doing quality work while finding smart, creative solutions to problems. In a tough fight, there is no question that I want Link Strategies in my corner.”
  
Jeff Link, the founder of Link Strategies, ran the Gore-Lieberman presidential campaign in Iowa in 2000.  He managed Tom Harkin’s 2002 and 2008 reelection campaigns.  Link also served as a media consultant for Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign.
  
Since his surprise victory over incumbent Michael Mauro in November 2010, Secretary of State Schultz has been a target of the Iowa Democratic Party.  Interestingly, on June 24, the same day as Zach Edwards alleged crime, Under the Golden Dome, a blog connected to Iowa Democrats, launched a three-part series of articles critical of Matt Schultz.  They were based on documents obtained through an open records request from “a tipster.”  The blog alleged that a batch of emails from Schultz’s office “raise some serious questions about his ability to remain independent and ensure election integrity.”
  
Just 15 days earlier, on June 9, the Iowa Democratic Party filed an ethics complaint against Schultz, claiming the Secretary of State of used public resources to campaign against presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman.  The Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board dismissed the complaint on July 19.

ACORN Group implicated in massive voter registration fraud

Judicial Watch exposes White House/Department of Justice working relationship with ACORN group.

With the 2012 elections just months away, the ACORN-connected group Project Vote (and Obama campaign ally) is redoubling its efforts to undermine the integrity of the 2012 elections -- and they are evidently doing it with the participation of the Obama White House and the Department of Justice (DOJ).

In January, Judicial Watch obtained additional documents about meetings held between Estelle Rogers, Director of Advocacy for the ACORN organization Project Vote, and officials from the Obama White House and the DOJ.

Judicial Watch is investigating the extent to which Project Vote, which once employed Barack Obama, has been working with the Obama administration 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.

Judicial Watch was already well aware that the DOJ was heavily involved in this scheme based on documents·previously obtained, but the latest batch of records implicates the Obama White House directly!

According to the records, obtained by Judicial Watch in response to a FOIA lawsuit filed on August 19, 2011:

  • On April 27, 2009, Estelle Rogers·wrote to Deputy Assistant Attorney General Sam Hirsh regarding an upcoming meeting on April 30, 2009. In addition to Rogers and Hirsh, other attendees included: Nicole Kovite, Director of Public Agency Project for Project Vote; Spencer Overton, Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Office of Legal Policy; and two officials from the Obama White House: Celia Muñoz, then-Director of Intergovernmental Affairs and recently promoted to Director of the Domestic Policy Council; and Tino Cuellar, Special Assistant to the President for Justice and Regulatory Policy. (Muñoz, you will recall, is the former senior vice-president of the National Council of La Raza who has been·funneling tax dollars to radical Mexican separatists ever since she joined the Obama White House.)

    In her email, Rogers referenced documents she forwarded in preparation for the upcoming meeting on the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), to which Hirsch replies that he looked forward to “reading these materials” and to “seeing everyone on Thursday.”

  • On February 23, 2011, Rogers·wrote to Associate Deputy Attorney General Robert Weiner, asking him to “make some headway with Attorney General [Eric] Holder in enforcing Section 7 of the NVRA.” The email notes that the DOJ had not yet filed any Section 7 lawsuits, which Rogers dubbed “deeply disappointing.” The first such DOJ lawsuit (against Rhode Island) was filed on March 18, 2011, less than one month later. Of particular note, is Rogers’ comment that “We have received oral assurances from [Assistant Attorney General Thomas] Perez on several occasions that enforcement action was imminent,” suggesting that Rogers was privy to internal discussions inside the DOJ regarding pending legal action.
  • On March 29, 2011, Rogers·wrote to Associate Attorney General [Thomas] Perrelli, urging him to review and “make improvements” to a document she was sending following another meeting held on March 17, 2011, between Project Vote and the DOJ on Section 7 compliance with the NRVA. Accompanying the document was a previous letter she had sent to the Civil Rights Division plus “additional comments on the Q and A.”

These documents raise fundamental questions about the politicization of the DOJ under Eric Holder and demonstrate that the ACORN-connected Project Vote is throwing its weight around the DOJ and driving the agency’s voting rights agenda.

And, evidently the Obama White House is now directly implicated in this growing scandal. It is now clear that Project Vote and the Obama/Holder DOJ are conspiring to file DOJ lawsuits to help re-elect Barack Obama. This collusion between Project Vote and the Obama administration is a significant threat to the integrity of the 2012 elections.

To have Project Vote involved in DOJ voting rights enforcement is like having the Mafia run the FBI! And Estelle Rogers is one of Project Vote’s key “bosses.”

As Director of Advocacy for Project Vote, Estelle Rogers ‒ a former attorney for ACORN, which was besieged with charges of corruption before declaring bankruptcy in November 2010 ‒ is a primary contact person on policy matters at Project Vote at both the state and federal levels and has been actively involved in voter registration issues. Using the threat of a lawsuit under the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), Project Vote has aggressively sought to manipulate voter registration laws in various states in an effort to increase the registration of people receiving public assistance.

On August 4, 2011, Judicial Watch released documents obtained from the·Colorado Department of State showing that ACORN and Project Vote successfully pressured Colorado officials into implementing new policies for increasing the registration of public assistance recipients during the 2008 and 2010 election seasons. Following the policy changes, the percentage of invalid voter registration forms from Colorado public assistance agencies was four times the national average. Project Vote also sought a “legislative fix” to allow people without a driver’s license or state identification to register to vote online.

In addition to pursuing public agency registration cases in Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, Georgia and New Mexico, Project Vote and the NAACP filed a lawsuit on April 19, 2011, against the State of Louisiana alleging violations of the NVRA. Less than three months later, on July 12, the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division/Voting Section sued Louisiana on the same grounds, claiming that “Louisiana officials have not routinely offered voter registration forms, assistance and services to the state’s eligible citizens who apply, recertify or provide a change address for public assistance or disability services.”

The DOJ’s March 11, 2011, lawsuit against Rhode Island led to policy changes intended to increase the number of voter registration applications processed by “public assistance and disability service officers.” These two lawsuits, filed within five months of each other, are the first such lawsuits filed by the DOJ since 2007.

Project Vote and ACORN have both been linked to massive voter registration fraud. A total of 70 ACORN employees in 12 states have been convicted of voter registration fraud. And as documented in a July 2009 report by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, of the 1.3 million registrations Project Vote/ACORN submitted in the 2008 election cycle, more than one-third were invalid. (And don’t believe the line that ACORN is dead. As we documented in our special report “The Rebranding of ACORN,” the corrupt organization is alive and well and ready to wreak havoc in the 2012 elections.)

A storm is fast approaching in 2012. The integrity of our elections is under attack by ACORN and Project Vote. And it now appears that the Obama administration is complicit in a plot by these community organizations to steal the elections. Trust Judicial Watch to do what it can to uphold the rule of law against this very real challenge to our election system.

His corrupt Chicago politics mentality knows no bounds and cares nothing about America other than as a trough at which he can feast high on the hog for free, no matter what it costs our nation.

In short the only job he cares about is his own!

The only future that concerns him if his own. America for him and Michelle, as his mentor Reverend Wright repeatedly said: is "Not God Bless America, but God Damn America"! You cannot listen to this preacher for 20-years and pretend you care about America.

Probe reveals Obama, Holder, ACORN connection

Jim Kouri is reporting that a leading public-interest organization that investigates and fights government corruption, announced that it has received additional documents about meetings held between Estelle Rogers, Director of Advocacy for the ACORN-affiliated organization Project Vote, and officials from both the Obama White House and the Attorney General Eric Holder's Department of Justice (DOJ).

Of particular interest is the use of the Justice Department to stop the individual states from passing legislation -- of defeating already passed laws -- that requires voter identification.

The group many insiders call Obama's worst nightmare -- Judicial Watch -- is investigating the extent to which Project Vote, which once employed Barack Obama as an organizer in Chicago, has been working with the Obama administration 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.
 
"This voting block is considered vital to the Obama campaign's strategy of pitting the poor against the rich, the unsuccessful against the successful, and the Saul Alinsky plan for increasing anti-capitalism sentiment," claims political strategist Mike Baker.
 
The additional documents, provided in response to a FOIA lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch on August 19, 2011, detail email communications between Rogers and high ranking officials from the Obama White House and DOJ.

The highlights from the records are here . . .

Pew study: 2 million dead Americans on active voter rolls

Josh Lederman is reporting that nearly 2 million dead Americans are still on active voter registries, and 1 in every 8 registrations in the United States is invalid or has major inaccuracies, according to a new study.
 
Research released Tuesday by the Pew Center on the States shows that the country is spending more on voter registration while getting worse results than other nations such as Canada. The study points to antiquated systems that don’t reflect modern technology and fail to address the biggest obstacles to maintaining accurate, up-to-date voter-registry databases.
 
Almost 3 million Americans are actively registered to vote in multiple states, while about 12 million have old or error-ridden addresses listed on their registrations, likely preventing voting-related mail from reaching them. And 1 in 4 eligible citizens — 51 million in total — aren’t registered to vote.

"Voter registration is the gateway to participating in our democracy, but these antiquated, paper-based systems are plagued with errors and inefficiencies," said David Becker, Pew’s director of election initiatives. "These problems waste taxpayer dollars, undermine voter confidence and fuel partisan disputes over the integrity of our elections."

The problems aren’t for lack of financial investment: The United States spends 12 times as much to maintain voter lists as its neighbor to the north.

A 2008 Pew study conducted in Oregon found taxpayers footing a bill exceeding $4 per voter to keep lists up to date, and the numbers in Wyoming are similar. By comparison, Canada spends less than 35 cents per voter to create and maintain its lists, and 93 percent of its eligible population are registered to vote.

Pew’s research suggests that elections authorities need to take a more active approach to rooting out errors and keeping lists current, rather than relying on voters to correct errors and make changes to their registration.

Electronic records collection should replace paper forms that lead to errors when officials have to manually enter data from the forms. And data-matching computers should be employed to take advantage of other available government databases that might already contain the correct information authorities need to keep voter records current.

Pew commissioned the nonpartisan research firm RTI International to conduct the study, using databases from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

And they'll all be voting for Obama!

Judicial Watch announces: The 2012 Election Integrity Project
 

Tom Fitton says we all saw what happened in 2008 and 2010, where the now bankrupt “community organization” ACORN and its partner in crime, Project Vote, engaged in massive voter registration fraud.  (The starting line-up for the Dallas Cowboys registered to vote in Nevada, to give just one absurd example of ACORN’s work.) 
 
Well now, as we head into the presidential election season, many are wondering if we are in for a repeat of this chaos in 2012 – not if Judicial Watch has anything to say about it.

On Thursday morning, Judicial Watch held a press conference at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, DC, to announce a critically important new campaign: The 2012 Election Integrity Project. (You can view the video from our press conference here.)

This campaign has a very simple mission: To help make sure certain voter rolls in 2012 are clean as federal law requires. No dead people. No convicted felons. And here’s how we’re going about it.

According to a Judicial Watch investigation based on publicly available data, voter rolls in the following states contain the names of individuals who are ineligible to vote: Mississippi, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Florida, Alabama, California, and Colorado.

On February 7, 2012, Judicial Watch sent initial warning letters to election officials in Indiana and Ohio, as well as letters of inquiry to Florida and California officials, investigating problematic voting lists in those states. Additional letters are forthcoming.

Judicial Watch’s initial warning letters notified election officials in Ohio and Indiana that they are required by law to “maintain accurate lists of eligible voters for use in conducting elections.” And if they fail? Judicial Watch made it very clear it is prepared to take legal action if election officials fail to clean up their voter rolls:

Allowing the names of ineligible voters to remain on the voting rolls harms the integrity of the electoral process and undermines voter confidence in the legitimacy of elections.

As the top election officials… it is your responsibility under federal law to conduct a program that reasonably ensures that the lists of eligible voters are accurate.

We hope our concerns can be resolved amicably. However, with the November 2012 election on the horizon and in light of the importance of Section 8 of the NVRA [National Voter Registration Act] to ensuring the integrity and legitimacy of the electoral process, we must emphasize the importance of timeliness. Accordingly, if we believe you do not intend to correct the above-identified problems, a lawsuit seeking declaratory and injunctive relief may be necessary.

As Judicial Watch indicated in its letters, under Section 8 of the NVRA, states must make a “reasonable effort” to clean up registration rolls. Section 8 also requires states to make available for public inspection “all records concerning the implementation of programs and activities conducted for the purpose of ensuring the accuracy and currency of official lists of eligible voters.”

There is no excuse for dirty voter lists. The law is unambiguous as to the responsibilities of election officials and Judicial Watch intends to hold them accountable.

Election fraud was a significant concern during the 2008 and 2010 election seasons, with ACORN/Project Vote being linked to massive voter registration fraud. A total of 70 ACORN employees in 12 states have been convicted of voter registration fraud. As documented in a July 2009 report by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, of the 1.3 million registrations Project Vote/ACORN submitted in the 2008 election cycle, more than one-third were invalid.

And what is the nation’s top law enforcement official, Attorney General Eric Holder, doing about all of this?

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.

This will make election fraud worse.

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.

While 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.

Barack Obama and the Holder DOJ 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.

Prepare for massive voter fraud in 2012

ACORN and Project Vote fraud during the 2008 campaign was funded with $800,000 from the Obama Campaign.

2 million dead ready to vote for Obama

Along with 24 million others who aren’t valid any longer

The United States’ voter registration system is in chaos — about 24 million registrations are no longer valid and nearly 2 million dead people are still on voter rolls, according to a new report Tuesday.

Along with the one of every eight voter registrations that is not valid or has significant inaccuracies, there are 2.75 million people currently registered to vote in more than one state, the Pew Center on the States study found. And the millions of problematic registrations aren’t the only issue — researchers estimate at least 51 million eligible U.S. citizens aren’t registered to vote. That’s nearly one in four, or 24 percent of the eligible population.

Additionally, about 12 million records have incorrect addresses, meaning it’s unlikely any mailings can reach these voters, the research in the report shows.

Still, David Becker, director of Pew’s Election Initiatives, said that the center’s findings did not suggest any kind of voter fraud or voter suppression from these problems, but noted they do “underscore the need for an improved system.”

There also are more than 1.8 million deceased people who still have active registration on voter rolls, Pew found. And, Becker said, the outdated, inefficient systems currently in place are “not designed to keep up with deaths as they occur.”

But hey, voter ID’s are oppressive

The Obama Administration’s re-election mobilization continues: Witness Eric Holder’s attempt to play the race card and perhaps twist the law in a campaign against voter identification laws.

In the Attorney General’s telling, the movement in the states to require voters to show some ID is a revival of minority disenfranchisement a la Jim Crow. A growing number of minorities, he said in a speech last week, are now worried about “the same disparities, divisions and problems” that beset the country in 1965 and “many Americans, for the first time in their lives . . . now have reason to believe that we are failing to live up” to the promise of democracy for all.

If you haven’t heard about this national crisis, perhaps that’s because you don’t travel in Mr. Holder’s political circles. He is merely repeating the howls of groups like the NAACP and the George Soros-funded Brennan Center, which claim without evidence that voter ID laws hurt minorities.

The NAACP even petitioned the United Nations this month for a human-rights ruling on what President Benjamin Jealous called a “tidal wave of assaults on the right to vote.” He meant in America, not Cuba or North Korea. The American Civil Liberties Union has sued to challenge a voter ID law in Wisconsin.

DrJohn says if democrats put the same energy they expend whining about voter ID’s into actually procuring voter ID’s for those they are concerned for this wouldn’t be an issue.

Which tells you they want the issue over the solution.

The main reason people don't want to get VOTER ID's is because they are either here fraudaluntly or don't want anyone to actually know where they live because they are on the run from something......  but they can give up an address for food, medical care, housing assistance etc, because the people don't actually have to be at that place to get their stuff anymore, unlike they did back before the EBT debit Card or the computer operator in the welfare office that just puts info into that puter and doesn't really check it out as viable.

 

Just my thoughts,

I have no doubt that election fraud will rule the day in November.  It's sad that in the U.S. we will soon need international election monitors to ensure a fair election.  It's so shameful I feel like I want to puke.
