Lawlessness in law enforcement.
The dead voters may be forced back into their graves. The biggest scandal emerging from the infamous New Black Panther voter- intimidation case didn’t even involve the Black Panthers. Instead, it came when whistleblowing attorney J. Christian Adams told the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that top Justice Department official Julie Fernandes had openly refused to enforce laws that require states to remove ineligible names – dead people, felons, people who have moved – from voter rolls.
“We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law,” Ms. Fernandes reportedly told a roomful of employees of the department‘s Voting Section in November. “It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.”
Now comes Mr. Adams to show this wasn’t idle talk. As early as today, 16 states will start receiving official “notice letters” from him warning of coming private-action lawsuits to compel them to enforce these particular provisions of the law. This appears to mean that the Justice Department is refusing to make states comply with federal voter-verification laws – which is why the task will fall to Mr. Adams, helping represent private citizens whose legal votes otherwise would be diluted in value by fraudulent votes.
The evidence adduced by Mr. Adams, who resigned in protest from the Obama Justice Department, is so stark as to beg the question of how the department could miss it other than by deliberately, lawlessly ignoring it. It is unclear why Ms. Fernandes felt compelled to make her turnout statement at all, unless it was to push back against staff attorneys who wanted to do their jobs according to the laws of the land.
Mr. Adams‘ notice letters report that South Dakota, for example, has 17 counties with more registered voters than there are citizens of voting age living there. Mississippi has 17 such counties. Alabama has seven, and Indiana, Kentucky and Texas have 12 each. Most of the states threatened with suits have reported no cleaning of their voter lists for years. Multiple press accounts in Tennessee show a serious problem with convicted felons and illegal immigrants being registered and sometimes voting.
ACORN ran amok in 2008, Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner abetted blatant voter fraud, Al Franken used fabricated ballots, and Obama’s DOJ selectively prosecutes cases based on its own discriminatory practices.
Dem party operatives are determined to fix voting methods in favor of their candidates. There’s only one small problem; they’re going to get their asses royally kicked in November. And some of the ass-kickers will be rudely awakened democratic voters.
