More Voters Than Living Human Beings

Once again, a corrupt Obama team member is hankying the panky. Playing fast and loose with the rules. Dealing off the bottom of the deck. Sucker punching the legal system. Surprise. Not.

Attorney General Eric Holder won’t do his job enforcing the integrity protections in the “Motor Voter” law passed in 1993. If you remember, the Motor Voter law was supposed to increase voter registration (section 7 - Welfare Office registration provisions) and at the same time increase voter integrity (section 8 - list integrity provisions).

By increasing integrity of voter rolls and increasing the number of registered voters, Motor Voter struck an important balance. Welfare offices and motor vehicle offices became voter registration centers. The law also mandates that states conduct list maintenance to ensure ineligible names don’t pollute the voting rolls. Dead people, ineligible felons, and people who moved away are required to be removed from the rolls by state election officials. No problem. Except there's a problem.

During the Bush administration, the Justice Department enforced both Section 7 and Section 8. In November 2009, political appointee Julie Fernandes, part of Holder's DOJ, told the entire assembled DOJ Voting Section that the Obama administration would not enforce the list maintenance provisions of Section 8. Section 8 “doesn’t have anything to do with increasing minority turnout,” Fernandes said. “We don’t have any interest in enforcing that part of the law.”

At the same time, Fernandes stressed that the DOJ would vigorously enforce the welfare agency registration provisions of Section 7. She gave these lawless instructions in front of dozens of shocked Voting Section lawyers. The DOJ has never once denied that Fernandes gave these instructions, nor has the DOJ countermanded them. The decision of the Holder DOJ to ignore the integrity provisions of Section 8 is deliberate and corrupt.

According to an article by J. Christian Adams, an election lawyer who served in the Voting Rights Section at the U.S. Department of Justice, South Dakota, Texas, Mississippi, Kentucky and Indiana report in excess of a dozen counties with more registered voters than living people old enough to vote. I'll be darned. Having more voters than living humans tells you something may be wrong in the Punkin' Patch. In West Virginia, one county reported 113% of the voting age population was registered to vote. Baltimore, Maryland, reported 104% of voting age citizens on the rolls. Iowa and North Carolina also reported counties with more voters than living citizens of voting age.

A few states, Maryland, Arkansas, Rhode Island, Alabama, Virginia, Massachusetts, Oregon, and Tennessee didn’t remove a single dead voter from 2006 to 2008. Some of the dead registered voters rose from their graves on election day and cast ballots. They really need to move election day away from Halloween. *shiver*

When he dismissed the case against the New Black Panthers, Mr Holder set the bar pretty low for voter intimidation. It looks like you can pretty much do what you want to intimidate potential voters outside the polling station. Combine that with allowing voter fraud (people voting by pretending to be dead people), the cheaters could very well swing an election in a close (or not so close) race.

Folks, we cannot accept the corruption of our election process. If confidence is lost in the fairness of our election process, we have seen in other countries what replaces it. This is not a pretty option. Demand that Attorney General Eric Holder do his job. You can call, email, or contact him via facebook through his webpage.
