Martin Gould is reporting that gaffe-prone Attorney General Eric Holder came under new Republican fire on Wednesday after calling for an end to state laws requiring voters to show identification at polling stations.

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas immediately slammed Holder, saying: "Voter identification laws are constitutional and necessary to prevent fraud at the ballot box.

"Facing an election challenge next year, this administration has chosen to target efforts by the states to protect the democratic process," Cornyn said.

The increased pressure on Holder came on the same day that 22 House Republicans proposed a vote of no confidence in him for his handling of the Fast and Furious gunrunning scheme.

The move was headed by Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona, who told Newsmax that Holder’s speech was further proof that "he is completely out of his depth as attorney general."

"In the game of baseball it’s three strikes and you’re out," Gosar said.

"First, with the Fast and Furious gunrunning operation, then with the laundering of U.S taxpayers' money to Mexican cartels, and finally now an attempt to circumvent the states’ rights to promote secure elections, Attorney General Holder has shown that he is completely out of touch with the American people.

"If we are to maintain the integrity of the democratic process, it is not unreasonable that voters should show appropriate identification when they turn up at polling stations and for him to suggest otherwise flies in the face of common sense," Gosar added. "I have already called on Mr. Holder to resign over Fast and Furious. This latest speech should serve as his final strike."

Documents reveal coordination between ACORN affiliate and Justice Department Voting Section

J. Christian Adams says Judicial Watch has done it again. It has produced -- following a Freedom of Information Act request filed with the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) -- documents that suggest extensive coordination and communications between the DOJ Voting Section and former ACORN affiliate Project Vote.
 
Project Vote appears to be directing DOJ resources toward particular states; is having meetings with DOJ staff; and is even recommending lawyers to work in the Justice Department Voting Section that will oversee the 2012 presidential election.

Project Vote also appears to have played a role in the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s administration, which aims to force the state to increase voter registration in welfare agencies and drug treatment offices.

The documents also appear to show that Project Vote receives special access to, and meetings with, DOJ officials. So do other voter fraud-deniers, such as the NAACP Legal Defense Fund; Tova Wang at Demos; and the Brennan Center for Justice. I write about numerous similar instances in my book, Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department.

These activist groups have enjoyed access to the top political appointees at DOJ over voting–including Aaron McCree Lewis, in the Office of the Attorney General; Sam Hirsch, Deputy Associate Attorney General; and Deputy Assistant Attorney General in charge of voting issues, Matthew Colangelo.

Emails obtained by Judicial Watch also suggest that Project Vote was directing complaints to the persons at DOJ responsible for deploying election monitoring resources, urging them to devote resources to races around the country–particularly where Tea Party groups were active in efforts to combat voter fraud.

On February 23, 2010, Estelle Rogers, head of Project Vote and a former ACORN lawyer, also urged Voting Section Chief Chris Herren to hire two particular ACORN-approved attorneys to work in the Justice Department Voting Section. “Now that the application period has closed, I want to heartily recommend two candidates to you,” she wrote.

“Thanks very much Estelle,” Herren wrote back.

Eventually, the Voting Section in fact hired numerous lawyers from left-wing groups, such as those that were dedicated to aggressive enforcement of the welfare agency voter registration provisions of Motor Voter. The relevant emails obtained by Judicial Watch are redacted, so we don’t know if the individuals hired were the same ones suggested by Rogers. However, we do know that DOJ hired attorneys expert in Motor Voter–such as Bradley Heard and Elizabeth Westfall, who brought lawsuits while at the Advancement Project that stopped Colorado and Michigan from purging voter rolls of ineligible voters prior to the 2008 Presidential election.

But that isn’t the worst of it. Other documents suggest that a swarm of left-wing groups is meeting regularly with top DOJ election officials. The documents show these groups urging the DOJ to open investigations into particular people, states and events.

For example, Rogers met with Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes to discuss lawsuits under Section 7 of the Motor Voter law. Previously, Fernandes had announced her unwillingness to enforce portions of the same law designed to ensure dead voters or ineligible felons were not on the rolls. Former Voting Section Chief Christopher Coates testified under oath that he had recommended investigations into eight states with possibly corrupted voter rolls, but Fernandes and other Obama appointees had spiked the investigations.

Instead, the documents show pleasing Project Vote was a DOJ priority.

In an October 10, 2010 email, Rogers made clear that she wanted the DOJ to take action against then-Senate candidate Mark Kirk in Illinois (Rogers incorrectly refers to him “Paul” Kirk). Rogers places the words “voter integrity” in quotes, as if fictional. Herren respondes: “Hi Estelle….We are also receiving complaints from various sources. For all these, we are reviewing and taking action as appropriate. If you have any issues that come up that you want us to be aware of, please feel free to shoot us an email (to Brian [Heffernan], Bert and I) – that’s the easiest way to keep track of the many things coming in the door.”

The “many things” include complaints made by left-wing groups about voter integrity and Tea Party efforts.

The documents reveal how left-wing civil rights groups work against Republican or conservative candidates by attempting to leverage law enforcement against them. These groups have a cozy relationship with the Obama Justice Department, and know just who to call if they want something done against someone like Mark Kirk.

The documents that Project Vote sent to the DOJ also include allegations against a client of mine, True the Vote. That might explain why the Justice Department took no action on a complaint that True the Vote sent DOJ in October 2010 documenting that self-professed non-citizens were registering to vote in Houston. We even sent documents showing that applicants marked “no” to questions about whether they were US Citizens.

True the Vote didn’t get the kind responsive emails that Project Vote did. They didn’t get special meetings with Voting Section staff and political appointees like Project Vote did. They didn’t receive any telephone calls, requests for more documents, interview requests, nothing. In fact, they didn’t get any response from Justice. Of course the most obvious difference in how Justice treated Project Vote compared with True the Vote is that DOJ launched a series of enforcement efforts against Rhode Island and Louisiana, just like Project Vote wanted. Against officials in Texas with the corrupted voter rolls, DOJ did nothing.

These emails are just the tip of the iceberg. The emails refer to other emails, not disclosed by DOJ, which involve employees not within the scope of the request. When Judicial Watch expands the FOIA to cast a wider net, and more employees that are named in the emails, more evidence of the coordination between the ACORN affiliate and your Justice Department’s Voting Section is likely to be found.

Obama election fraud investigation underway in Indiana

Joe Schoffstall is reporting that Barack Obama's 2008 campaign is under investigation for alleged voter fraud during the Democratic primaries. Many Indiana voters are claiming their signatures were forged.

The Democratic Party within the state was quick to react calling it an 'isolated incident', while the Republican Party says it's cheating if found guilty.

In each congressional district in Indiana, you need 500 signatures - Obama qualified with 534. It is being said 150 of them were forged

Is this any way to run an election?

 

 

This is a ProjectVeritas.com Investigation.  That's James O'Keefe.

 

Election officials advise no ID necessary to register Timothy Tebow and Thomas Brady to vote in Minnesota. Absentee ballots are discussed, voter registration forms are given out, and Election officials blow the whistle on potential fraud in their own state.

 

The election process is completely corrupt, and Obama is counting on that corruption for four more years.

Illegitimate Obama blocks legitimate vote

Pamela Geller has a comment about the Obama administration blocking the Texas voter ID law.

I don't know about you, but I have to whip out my photo ID at least 4 times a day, and not just for travel.  When I enter a building in NYC, I have to show a photo ID.  When I shop at a department or specialty store, I have to show a photo ID.  If I buy a wine at Radio City, I have to show a photo ID.
 
So the idea that the President of the United States would block a state law to protect the most cherished and sacred of our freedoms, the right to vote, speaks volumes to motive. 

Derrick Bell's, Jeremiah Wright's, Bill Ayers, Frank Marshall Davis's, Khalid Al Mansour's protege does not want a legit election.

Dead people and clones voting in Vermont

Yet the Obama Administration continues to trample states and their voter ID laws.

On Super Tuesday in Vermont, Poll workers caught on tape handing out Ballots in names of dead people and giving out ballots in living people's names to anyone who walked in. Bars, hotels and city clerk issuing civil union all required ID.

They handed the ballots out to people under the following names:

Adam Berger
Cooper Fellows
Roger Audette DEAD
John E. Adams
Lucas Hertweck
Mahamud Somo DEAD
Travis Houle
Evan R Bean
 

James O'Keefe of ProjectVeritas.com strikes again.

Holder’s DoJ implements Critical Race Theory in Texas

Ben Shapiro says Eric Holder’s Department of Justice has issued  an objection to Texas’ voter ID requirement. As the Associated Press writes:

The Justice Department conveyed its objection in a letter to Texas officials that was also filed in the U.S. District Court case in Washington between Texas and the department. Justice said Hispanic voters in Texas are at least 50 percent more likely and possibly more than twice as likely as non-Hispanic voters to lack a driver's license or a personal state-issued photo ID, which the Texas law requires.

Meanwhile, across the country, James O’Keefe III has released video showing just how easy it is to participate in voter fraud in Vermont, since no photo ID is required. He is even offered ballots by polling officials after giving them the name of dead folks.

So why is the Holder DOJ so intent on stopping Texas’ voter ID requirement? Because the Holder DOJ is dominated by a soft variant of the philosophy of critical race theory. The DOJ contention goes something like this: a law must be racist if it has varying impact on different classes of people. It must be designed to uphold the white supremacist hierarchy. Thus, even a law of neutral applicability – meaning a law that applies equally to everyone, like showing your ID to vote – becomes a racist measure. The system itself is corrupted, even though the law is clearly not racist on its face.

That’s the basis of the DOJ’s letter. And that’s why the DOJ seems so unconcerned with voter fraud, while cracking down on voter ID: only laws that make special provision for different groups (in this case, Hispanics) should be implemented. If the door is opened to voter fraud, so be it; at least we’ll sleep better at night knowing that Hispanics without IDs aren’t disadvantaged by the law.

It’s sheer nonsense. Worse, it moots legitimate votes across the country. But if you consider the entire system corrupt and racist to begin, it’s not a huge departure to move against laws that prevent corruption so as to avoid the shadowy “systemic racism” that supposedly pervades all American law.

Holder upholds voter fraud

Ross Kaminsky says the U.S. Department of Justice,  operating under antiquated "preclearance" provisions of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, blocked Texas's recently passed Voter ID law, claiming that the law was targeting Hispanics and aimed at suppressing minority voter turnout in the state.

The DOJ recently made a similarruling in South Carolina, ostensibly to protect black voters there.

These decisions are purely political, as Texas Senator John Cornyn, former Texas Attorney General and member of the Texas Supreme Court, put it: "Today's decision reeks of politics and appears to be an effort by the Department of Justice to carry water for the President's reelection campaign."

Eric Holder and his DOJ henchmen are explicitly racist, which is to say anti-white, as convincingly demonstrated by former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams in his must-read book,Injustice. It is an agency run by people who have said that they only intend to enforce voting law if the victim of a violation of the law is not white. For example, Adams quotes his "assigned mentor," Avner Shapiro, who opposed bringing a case against Ike Brown, a notorious black Democrat election fraudster in Mississippi: "I didn't come to work in the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice to sue black people."

Regarding Monday's DOJ decision, Adams told this reporter that "It is the latest radical decision by Eric Holder to please racial interest groups like the NAACP before the election. The objection is based on flimsy legal reasoning that exaggerates the statistical disparities and misrepresents the law regarding voter fraud. Jenniffer Maranzano, a former Advancement Project lawyer was deliberately assigned to the case to get this outcome."

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.

Demonstrating the need for Texas's law, a Texas-based group called True the Votehas found many instances of the very voter registration irregularities that Voter ID is designed to prevent from turning into fraudulent votes, and thus to shield our elections from some of the easiest to perpetrate forms of corruption. They found particularproblemsin the Houston-area district of Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee who, as usual, cried "racist!"

The efforts of the left's "well-funded industry of voter fraud deniers that provides an intellectual smokescreen for this lawlessness" are, unfortunately, somewhat effective in convincing Americans that voter fraud is a myth despite widespread evidence of its existence and importance, and that efforts to combat voter fraud are naked racism.

Part of the reason for the fraud-deniers' existence is that voter fraud tends to benefit Democrats disproportionately. And for that same reason, the media goes along, playing down important stories and creating moral equivalence where there is none.

Rasmussen

 

Is reporting that the Obama administration has blocked Texas’ new law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls, saying it would suppress Hispanic voter turnout, and the United Nations is now investigating the fairness of such laws in Texas and other states. But voters in this country still overwhelmingly support voter ID laws and don’t think they discriminate.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 72% of Likely U.S. Voters believe voters should be required to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to vote. That’s in line with findings from December but remains down slightly from the 75% to 82% of voters who have supported a photo ID voting requirement in surveys since June 2006. Only 22% are opposed to the photo ID requirement. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on March 13-14, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

US Attorney General Eric Holder's ballot to vote offered to total stranger

Poll Workers on Primary Day in Washington, DC offer US Attorney General Eric H Holder's ballot to vote... to a complete Stranger. Other voting locations in Washington, DC offer to sign for ballots. Eric Holder has said multiple times there exists no evidence of voter or voter registration fraud.

Evidence of voter fraud "manufactured"

Ben Shapiro is reporting that the Department of Justice is in full-on spin mode over the James O'Keefe Project Veritas tape in which a young white man is offered Attorney General Eric Holder's ballot. Desperate to prove that voter ID should not be presented in order to obtain a ballot, the DOJ fired back at O'Keefe and Project Veritas today, with a DOJ official telling tried-and-true media ally Talking Points Memo, "It's no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones."
 
This is nonsensical. Obviously this wasn't an actual case of voter fraud -- O'Keefe and Project Veritas didn't want to break the law. And obviously the situation is manufactured -- it's the only way to show that voter fraud is easy and plausible, since we presumably don't know when voter fraud takes place. That, in fact, is the point of the video: that voter fraud in this way is virtually undetectable and bears almost zero risk.
 
But the DoJ isn't interested in the real point of the video. They know full well that voter fraud is simple when nobody has to show identification. They just don't care, since they're happy to watch political allies take advantage of the loopholes. Instead of targeting O'Keefe and Project Veritas for showing the American public the dangers of the current voter identification system, the Department of Justice and Holder are apparently interested only in preserving the absence of voter ID, no matter how many fraudulent ballots are actually cast.

It doesn't do any good to monitor and check voting polls when the vote is going to be tabulated outside of the US. It matters who tabulates the votes!!!! How can this be signed out of Obamas care? Tell me how can this be, no wonder he said here recently "When I am re-elected". Obama knows he will be reelected.

This company has bought the rights to process our votes in the 2012 election. Our votes are going to a central SERVER where the votes will be COUNTED!!! The CEO OF SYTL is the former CEO of Global Net and contributed the maximum allowed amount to the Obama campaign. If I got that right from listening, does anyone else no anything about this?

No shit Sherlock!

Florida, especially south Florida, has been awful for this for DECADES! 
North Fla. counties with Dem Supervisor of Elections are just as bad. Old folks in Homes and even total retards are registered to vote by their facilities for Absentee Ballots and filled out by the "Staff". Who ever will give them the most taxpayer money is the winner.
I'm hard core Florida born swamp rat, moved to Texas, cause the libs were buying votes from the Yankee retirees as well as the local parasites.

Nothing against country and Veteran Yankees, my wife is one. AS was her Daddy and her sister.

This is our country. We fought for it for generations. Even against each other. To see it go down as a Communist nation is way below the shit-line.

I realize there is election fraud but this takes it on whole different level, he sold the rights to count the votes to a company in Spain. So the votes are not going to be counted here they go to a company in Spain that counts all the votes. Doesn't matter what district your in, none of this matters. You need to listen to the video that Micheal Savage recorded.

the whole thing about Obama getting re-elected is getting to make a person sooooo sick, he is going to do whatever he has to do to make sure that nothing will stop him, and I think that this is the capper....  and I don't know of any way we can stop it from happening.  Unless the precincts open the vote machines and get the tapes out of them before they go to the counting rooms... and then they physically count them and report the results to the top person as they come in, or put the results into a safe deposit box and keep them, that is EACH PRECINCT and each Town, each County and EACH STATE.....  that is  a lot of work and I am not sure that many people would be willing to do that much work.  Because for the most part, everyone has become too willing to let the machines do the work and themselves not expend too much effort to get whatever job they have done....  in the propper manner.  I will talke to the guys at the Registrars Office on Wednesday when I am in town, and see if there is a plan in motion to stop ANY of this from happening...any contingency matters that may show up and see how they might mitigate the situations.  However, I really don't think any of them have even worried about such things happening, much less thought about how to thwart it from happening.

Holder's assinine opposition to voter ID laws

David Limbaugh asks if anyone think of an innocuous reason Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder oppose state voter ID laws?
 
Obama and Holder appear to view almost everything through the prism of race or, at the very least, use race as an excuse to justify otherwise very dubious policies, from immigration enforcement to voter intimidation actions to strong-arming banks to make loans via allegations of racism.

In December, along these lines, Holder criticized redistricting maps that had been drawn by the Texas Legislature and used the opportunity to call for an aggressive federal review of voter identification laws in not just Texas but other states.
 
But what does all this have to do with voter ID laws? Well, Republicans have been engaged in lobbying for state voter ID laws throughout the nation as an effort to enhance fair and lawful elections and prevent voter fraud. These laws are simple and transparent; they would require voters to present a government-issued form of identification as a condition to voting.
 
Predictably, Democrats -- led by Obama and Holder -- claim that the move is a GOP ruse to suppress minority voting. Holder called on the parties "to resist the temptation to suppress certain votes in the hope of attaining electoral success and, instead, achieve success by appealing to more voters."
 
Notice the automatic assumption and, in turn, barely veiled accusation of GOP racism. Notice further how utterly patronizing Holder’s attitude is to minorities.
 
Is Holder’s position that minorities are incapable of or ill-equipped at obtaining identification to vote? Why shouldn’t people be required to prove they are who they say they are in order to participate in the electoral process?
 
I would think minorities would be offended at the suggestion that laws requiring them to prove their identity as a prerequisite to voting would somehow disadvantage them. I would think they would have every bit as much interest in ensuring fair, fraud-free elections as non-minorities.
 
It is sheer common sense that our election authorities should demand proof of the identity of all voters before allowing them to cast votes that will ultimately determine critical decisions affecting the future of their state and nation. I don’t remember ever being allowed to vote, by the way, without presenting an ID, even though the precinct workers know me and I know them. This isn’t the least bit offensive, but even if it were, it wouldn’t justify jeopardizing the integrity of elections.
 
Political correctness causes people to adopt absurd and indefensible positions, which is precisely how we should characterize efforts to resist voter ID laws.
 
Obama, Holder and the Democratic Party establishment don’t even bother to counter the irrefutable argument that proof of ID is essential to reduce voter fraud. Instead, they just throw out the slanderous allegation that the GOP is trying to suppress the minority vote, which itself is born of the same type of categorical judgment about groups of people that lies at the heart of the sin of racism.
 
I am not a big fan of so-called bipartisanship, because I think it’s a one-way street for Democrats, who only demand it when they want Republicans to cater to their demands, and not the other way around. I’m also realistic enough to recognize that today the parties are so far apart in their goals for the nation and the means to achieve them that we’re just better off presenting our alternative cases to the people and letting them decide. But if there were ever an issue that screams out for bipartisanship, ensuring fair elections by verifying the identity of voters would have to be at the top of the list.
 
The administration’s cavalier dismissiveness about the need for voter identification to improve ballot security has been exposed as the cynical fraud it is with the recent release of a video from filmmaker James O’Keefe. The video showed how easy it was for an associate of O’Keefe’s to check in as Eric Holder in Holder’s polling place without presenting identification, though he neither signed the poll book nor proceeded to cast a ballot. The poll worker, who obviously didn’t know O’Keefe, much less Eric Holder, didn’t even want to be bothered with the presentation of an ID. "As long as you’re in here and you’re on our list and that’s who you say you are, we’re OK," he said.
 
It’s outrageous that Holder is accusing Republicans of wanting to suppress the minority vote through these laws. But it’s not outrageous to suggest that Holder and his party, through their specious invocation of the race card to oppose these laws, have no legitimate basis to oppose them and indeed must have an ulterior reason for doing so -- one that involves rigging the election process in their favor.

Arizona voter-ID law upheld by court

The AP is reporting that An appeals court upheld a requirement in a 2004 Arizona law that voters show identification before they can cast ballots, saying that there wasn't evidence that the mandate disproportionately affected Latinos as the challengers had alleged.

A 12-member panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said in a ruling Tuesday that there was evidence Arizona has racially polarized voting and a history of discrimination against Latinos, but concluded no proof was offered ...
