One would think that our federal government would all for protecting the basic civil rights of American citizens by aggressively fighting voter fraud.
This is not under the Obama regime. Let us review several examples.
First, our Dear Leader’s so-called “Justice Department” has stopped the state of Florida from removing dead people from the voter rolls. Really. You can’t make this stuff up. Investors Business Daily has an article on the topic that sums the problem nicely.
Washington has ordered Florida to end its effort to remove ineligible voters from the state’s voter rolls. This is breathtaking. It couldn’t be clearer that the government is actively promoting voter fraud.
Somehow, the DOJ has determined that purging illegal voters — felons, noncitizens, the deceased — from the rolls is a violation of the 1965 Voting Rights Act as well as the 1993 National Voter Registration Act. According to the Miami Herald, the department’s lead civil rights attorney, T. Christian Herren Jr., sent the state “a detailed two-page letter” on Thursday demanding that Florida’s elections division shut down its pursuit.
What’s missing from Herren’s complaint is the fact that no one is actually moved off the rolls until they are found to be ineligible. Simply sending names to county elections supervisors to confirm eligibility, which is what Florida officials are doing, discriminates against no one. Either the person is eligible to vote or not.
No one is harassed or summarily tossed off the voter rolls. There is no poll tax or literacy test.
Why is the Obama administration afraid of purging the dead from the active voter rolls?
RightGirl points out that when actually shown evidence of how easy voter fraud is, the Obama administration’s so called “Justice Department” ignores the problem.
Oh, we have found one case where democrats are not calling a requirement to show a photo ID in order to vote. Their own state party convention in Massachusetts.
