Justice Department Insults Minorities with Voter ID Opposition

By Bobby Eberle

One of the most mystifying quests of Obama's Justice Department is its effort to stamp out any initiative designed to clean up the voting process. Isn't it the left that says it wants "fairness" and an "equal playing field?" If that is the case, then why is Attorney General Eric Holder doing everything he can to stop Voter ID laws... even to the point of insulting his and Obama's own base?

In a great write-up by Amy Payne at The Heritage Foundation, Payne notes the hypocrisy in everything Holder says:

People seemingly voting after they've been dead for years. Drug kingpins buying votes from poor people to sway elections. Non-citizens being bussed to the polls and coached on how to vote. Stories of voting fraud are shocking, and states have been taking action to make sure that elections are secure. But the Justice Department, led by Attorney General Eric Holder, has blocked states at almost every turn.

This is the same Justice Department that stopped a non-partisan election reform by arguing that if party affiliation were removed from a ballot, African-American voters wouldn't be able to identify and vote for the Democrats. Holder has continued to stoke the racial fires, calling a requirement for voters to produce photo identification a "poll tax." Heritage expert Hans von Spakovsky said this argument is merely political. "Holder continues to perpetuate the incendiary error to the public, knowing that the poll-tax assertion is a racially charged one that should not be used lightly," von Spakovsky said.

Diving into the letter written by Acting Assistant Attorney General Loretta King which forms the basis for the argument against removing party affiliation from the ballot, one can only come to the conclusion that Holder, Obama, and their entire team can only get elected if blacks are spoon fed and hand-held all the way to the voting booth.

Removing the partisan cue in municipal elections will, in all likelihood, eliminate the single factor that allows black candidates to be elected to office. In Kinston elections, voters base their choice more on the race of a candidate rather than his or her political affiliation, and without either the appeal to party loyalty or the ability to vote a straight ticket, the limited remaining support from white voters for a black Democratic candidate will diminish even more. And given that the city's electorate is overwhelmingly Democratic, while the motivating factor for this change may be partisan, the effect will be strictly racial.

In other words, Obama and Holder don't want voting reform, because they don't have confidence that blacks can figure it out by themselves. This is about the most insulting thing I've ever heard.

Then, there is the opposition to voter ID laws. Of course, Holder's argument is that it somehow disenfranchises minorities. As if minorities are incapable of picking up a free ID card. Here's what Payne writes about this:

In states that have voter ID laws, the real-world results show that minorities have not been disenfranchised by any means. States that require ID to vote have offered free IDs to anyone who does not have one already. In Kansas, which allows any of nine different forms of ID as proof of identity to vote:

Out of a total of 1.713 million registered voters in Kansas, only 32 people had requested a free photo ID as of May 4, 2012. That represents only 0.002 percent of the registered voters in the state. Of those 32 voters, 80 percent were white, 10 percent were black, and the race or ethnicity of 10 percent was unknown. Thus, there is no evidence that minority voters were disproportionately affected.

Only U.S. citizens should be allowed to vote. Having a photo ID card is a reasonable step to ensure the integrity of the process. The fact that Obama and Holder oppose such measures means that the sanctity of the ballot box is of little concern to them.

    I believe you are wrong in your assumption the ‘Justice Department insults minorities’ regarding the blocking of Voter ID. Who they are really insulting is us – rules-abiding citizens of the U.S.A. The minorities look at it as a ‘bonus’ from obama – they don’t have to show any i.d., they can vote legally or illegally, stay in America legally or illegally….because of the ‘you don’t need to know my status’ GIVEN to them by no other than obama, the Dems and the DOJ. I AM INSULTED!

      I was promised 12 years ago when I became a legal American citizen, that I had just acquired the most important right in this country: the right to Vote.

      I feel violated every time when I hear that my right to Vote is not properly protected from others making a joke of this right!

      Anyone not agreeing with voter ID laws ought to live on the border like we do, and see the hundreds of illegals that try to slip over the river every day. The border patrol is constantly raiding “stash houses” everyday and finding no telling how many hundreds of illegals. Do you mean that they should be allowed to vote? In Texas, we have had voter ID laws for at least 50 years. However, in most cases, if folks have a voter registration certificate, that’s all they need to vote. However, they must show a picture ID when they go to register to vote. Nothing wrong with that. If they have that, then their name will be on the voter list, and all the election judge does is check it off, and the voter signs by his/her name.

      These are the laws we’ve always had; they are not ‘given by obama and the Dems’. @Mary: this is the same system we have in NY. Show a government-issued picture ID once and then just sign your name. WHat if the person dies and someone else comes in to vote for them? Their signature must be a reasonable match and they must be the correct gender and roughly the right age. Other than that, it is illegal to ask for ID, although I’ve seen the pollworkers do it. NYC where I live has a lot of illegal aliens. I work at the polls. One of the largest groups of illegals are the Irish, believe it or not. But many illegals of all stripes are leaving because there’s no work. Fine and imprison the employers and there will be no jobs. The illegals will then self-deport.

    Holder is trying say this is going to limit qualified black and Latino voters that are too poor to get voter ID’s. But the real reason is so that the Democrats can get their normal number of dead people, illegals and those who vote early and often to the voting booths without restrictions.

    People need ID’s for just about everything including obtaining food stamps, welfare checks, drivers licenses, opening a bank account, renting an apartment, purchasing a home or car…list goes on. States issue voter ID’s free, so what is his beef other than it prevents fraud which is something that should interest any Attorney General of the United States.

    Holder would do everything he can to steal this election for Obama. His prevention of voter ID’s is an example of that.

      In Texas, they can get a picture ID if they can prove that they are citizens. Federal law states that in order to vote you must be l8 years of age or older, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the county in which you reside for at least 30 days prior to the election. Check it out. This is federal law.

    The Democrats have gone away, replaced by an Administration which is no more than a crime family, using extortion as their favorite means of getting their way. Obama should have been impeached the first time he used extra-legal powers to get his way. They are for the people? One just needs to look at the Chrysler bankruptcy to see that they have NO feeling for the people. This criminal gave Chrysler to the UAW, even though they had no skin in the game. However, pension plans, who were the bulk of the secured shareholders, with their assets on the line, were pushed aside so the unsecured UAW, whose contracts should have been voided as part of the bankruptcy, got the company while the pensioners lost EVERYTHING. He should have been impeached then and there, no question about it. Bending and breaking the law so he can be King is his trademark, along with the constant lying and the use of his capo’s to strip Federal Law, the latest being the Welfare Reform Act, which is SO unconstitutional that living through this regime is like reading a version of the Godfather with different characters. Why he is still in office is beyond my understanding. The Democrats, in Federal Court, even said that, even though their candidate was not eligible to be President, they had the right to run whatever candidate they chose. Go Figure.

      I agree this president has over reached his executive powers under our Constitution — and should be impeached — for several acts. Eric Holder, as our top law enforcer, should also be impeached for not upholding our immigration and voter id laws — and then there are several other infractions that can be added. Sounds easy to impeach, but here is the difficulty.

      The House of Representatives votes to impeach – which is an indictment. It takes a simple majority to impeach. The trial is then held in the Senate. To be found guilty – and removed from office, it requires a 2/3 vote – 67 votes. So, currently the House probably would be successful with a vote to impeach. The problem would be the Senate which under Harry Reid’s leadership would vote on strict party lines. The GOP has 47 seats in the Senate requiring 20 additional votes from the Democrats. Wouldn’t happen.

      This is what occurred during Clinton’s presidency. The House voted to impeach – easily. However, 45 senators (out of 100) voted guilty on the perjury charge and 50 on the obstruction charge — 17 votes short of removing Clinton from office. All 45 Republican Senators voted guilty.

      To this day 3 major historical incidents continue the riff between the parties: (1) Democrats losing the majority in House in 1994 after 40 years of control; (2) the impeachment by the majority Republican House of Clinton; (3) the loss of the presidential election to Bush in 2000. Rather than work together with the Republicans, they continue to have a temper tantrum like spoiled brats.

      Needless to say, the impeachment of Obama, the historical presidency – a great accomplishment for the Democrats — would be another issue and no matter what the evidence, the Dems would vote on party line. No way to get 67 votes. AND the Dems would end up with a BIG win politically. Therefore, there is no way the Repubs would impeach. No prosecutor would indict without a strong possibility of a win. The only way to remove Obama is to VOTE HIM OUT in November.

    Shouldn’t there be some kind of simple voter’s test, similar to the test we all have to take to get a driver’s license? A test that would require a basic understanding of our Constitution (like the reasoning behind the electoral college, for instance), and a basic familiarity with American history. You want to vote, you have to pass the test. You don’t pass, you don’t vote. Same test for everyone, with study booklets available. You could take the test as many times as you wanted, but you couldn’t vote until you passed it.

    This is simply a way of allowing illegals, etc. to vote for Obama. I don’t understand why liberals think that illegals, the deceased, felons, illiterates, etc. should be allowed to vote at all. Holder, et. al. have no interest in fairness, they simply want a second term at all costs, and are will to destroy the country to get it. The real problem is that this foretells the end of our democratic Republic, where the Pied Piper (Obama) encourages the populus to vote themselves benefits that the government cannot afford, whether they are citizens and pay taxes or not. We must revert to the original version of the Constitution where voters had to own land in order to vote. The concept being that if you did not have some net worth (and have some skin in the game), you were not allowed to vote until you did. No free rides.
    If we don’t change this situation, we will go bankrupt more quickly than most people think. Today the USA borrows about 40% of what we spend, and we are accumulating $1 trillion dollars of additional debt every year, so we are not that far away from the edge of the Grecian precipice.
    The other thing we must do to save our nation is pass the Fair Tax, so that everyone (above the poverty level) pays tax on what they spend. This is the fairest way to tax everyone,and it would likewise revive our economy and creat badly need jobs in the USA.

    Defeating voter ID is not to protect the minority’s, or the poor’s ability to vote. Most poor folks in this country are on welfare, and already have a government ID. They need it to spend their food stamps, and get their cash. It is to protect the rights of Disney characters, illegals, & dead people’s ability to vote, and so all can vote early and often (the last part at least is the motto in Chicago).

    Great article – and you’re right. But it’s a rhetorical question. Nobama only claimed interest when it was politically appropriate – slamming Az’s law in this case. With that done, it’s back to golf. The man’s a narcissist at best. This man can’t open his mouth without pandering to someone. Can’t blame him, he’s never held a job.

    The dems get a great deal of their votes from illegals – we already know this. It’s right out of their playbook and the republicans, like they always do, go chase the dems empty charges while the dems laugh. Both parties are morons and it;s the voters who should know better and see these shenanigans for what they are.

    Try entering any other country illegally and see what happens…we’re the only country that puts up with this and it’s costing us dearly.

    The dems pandering hurts illegals and deprives them of a fair shake in becoming a citizen. Fix the process to fastrak those who want to come and work, live and thrive.

    When do you think nobama’s thugs and the not-so-mainstream media might focus on helping people get back to work?

    Over 220,000 small business have gone under on his watch adding 3.1 million to the unemployment ranks. I think we’re all aware small business fuels this economy’s growth – what’s being done is tragic and even more tragic that we put up with the media’s insistence that all is well.

    Unless things have changed in the last five years, a person in Texas does not need to show ID to register to vote. They can just mail in the application. When the motor voter law was passed every state agency passed them out. If a person does not have his voter registration, then photo ID is required.

I hope that the youth vote turns out in droves. They are unemoployed or under employed and were lied to in the worst way. I think that everytime Obama or one of his minions open their mouth they stick both feet into it. They act as if American voters are stupid and almost come right out and say that. If things keep going like they are Obama will lose by the biggest landslide ever. Keep praying with me that it happens or we will live to regret it.

    When Michelle Obama held a fund raiser she had everyone show anI.D., Eric Holder did the same at the NAACP conference.Why would these two hypocrites demand identification at their meeting but not for voters?
    The reason is the democrats have perfected rigged elections see Minnesota, New York, Chicago, Washington et al examples.
    They demand open elections just like open borders so they bring in students to vote as dead people, they demand students be able to vote either in their community or their college site or anywhere,democrats were signing up names at several Batman openings to obtain the names and then they will vote with those names on election day knowing in democratic precincts they will not be challenged If I.D.s were good for the Michelle Obama and Eric Holder sites why aren’t they good for everywhere? Fraud is the answer.

    Let’s go back to some history. We forget that Eric Holder was the Assistant Attorney General under Bill Clinton. Therefore, he was there during the 2000 presidential election between Bush and Gore — the famous election that required the Supreme Court to step in.

    If you remember, the election was called for Bush; Gore conceded, then withdrew it, and the controversy started. What many missed was the Dems sent Mayor Dailey of Chicago to Florida the day after the election. Why? To find out what happened — indicating the Dems couldn’t believe it was possible to lose Florida. So, the concentration on the “chads” began.

    Some of my immediate questions which were never answered were: (1) How many dead people voted. (2) How many felons? (3) How many illegals? and (4) How many voted more than once – especially those with a residence in FL and one in another state? All of these should have been part of the inquiry — not just the “chads”. This was a joke in order to draw our attention away from the real issues — voter fraud!

    Here’s what I believe had more influence on the FL vote than the Dems will admit to — to this day. It was Eric Holder who made the decision to send in the “Gestapo” SWAT team to retrieve the Gonsales boy in the middle of the night. This was broadcast all over the world. A great deal of FL’s Hispanic vote is from Cuban heritage. These people escaped Castro’s regime. Do you think this turned off the Hispanic vote in FL — enough to throw the election to the Repubs? Remember the FL vote went to Bush with less than 500 votes. So, Holder has a whole issue with voter rights. He wants to ensure the numbers will be on the Dems side always. But this historical election may tell us these voters are not so easily led. Keep in mind, many of these voters has escaped dictatorial regimes for freedom — WWII Europe, Russia, China, Viet Nam, Central America, Cuba, and on and on. They may rise up if they think their freedom may be encroached upon again.

    Ever wonder what would happen if it were suspected that widespread Republican voter fraud was taking place? The DOJ would not only be insisting on photo ID’s but probably at least five other forms of ID before allowing anyone to vote. What a bunch of hyprocrites!

    Barack, the 3rd world dictator imitator,does what 3rd world dictators do.They always have henchmen normally wearing military hats of some sort, sunglasses, and a munition at their side.I see that in Holder all the time only he additionally carries the sword of justice to complete his authoritarian regalia.
    When not touring the world with his wife and all, and I mean all her friends, while the pions at home are wallowing in pain, Barack can be seen on most network news channels smiling and waving from his caravan suv encouraged by raving adorers on his way to play yet another round of golf.
    Meanwhile, Holder is back at the palace wielding a golden fist atop his law books doing the work he was entrusted to do,create confusion,diversions,ridicule dissention as illegal or racsist,threaten the churches(my God even Castros brother did’nt have the nerve to do that)and generally debase the townsfolk as out of touch with reality.Creating therein a need for his services you might say.
    In their mind, minorities either can’t be insulted or don’t know enough to know when they are or don’t care.If a van has to show up to take me to the polls I either don’t care ,am to drunk to go,waiting for a freebe,or legitimately don’t have a ride.Do I have a neighbor friend in this hood? Most of the people around me are going to the polls ,but look at me ,a van picks me up and takes my picture. Stylin!
    El Baracko just lowered the legal requirements for illegals to stay in the country.Now we have a river of twelve year old mexicans crossing over the border daily with ICE( no, not that ice)being told to keep their hands off.Well, as a legal one would expect I would be very upset because I was lied to that I had to go through all that naturalization business to be welcomed into the citizenry.But no,I’m not the least bit upset. I just called 86 of my friends, my friends relatives,aunts, uncles,inlaws(well maybe not inlaws)but you get the point.This is a huge gift all I have to say is I’m legal and away I go,and not only that I get a picture to vote and will get my license soon.Age is no problem. No proof. Thank you El Baracko I vote for you and maybe Michelle too. Is that ok? Consequences be damned.
    Minorities To Obama and Holder are the great manipulated and the worst manipulaters of them are those two.I’m sure minorities are aware, as I’m convinced they are, you don’t take unless you are prepared to pay back.Pay back they will, none of what is being offered them is free.Fall on the sword for Obama because he’s black, most blacks do, but in the end it will be Holders sword that will do them in as they cry-out for more and there is no more.The dictator Barack and his lovely wife Michelle will listen from their palace to the cries of “help us Barack”,”save us Barack” and then he’ll do what he always does,smile, wave, and do nothing There is a consequence.Just say no and do it sooner than later.

    In my work you have to show a govt issued photo ID to be able to travel or produce other documents that prove that you are who you say you are.
    The big boohoo Waahaa among Democrat party leaders is that it seems that a large number of “their” voters have no valid way of proving who they actually are. And even where a govt issued photo ID is free some don’t seem to be able to afford to get to the office where said id is issued. But they can afford cigarettes and other things without a problem. Holden is out to destroy everything this country stands for and wipe out everything it stands for if we don’t get rid of him.
    The Democrats in this state have made it even easier to cheat as we don’t have to show up in person to register to vote and we get our ballots in the mail and mail them in.
    That makes it easier for their dead ancestors, dogs and cats to vote here.

    Once we establish a universal photo-ID requirement to vote, and I’m sure as hell hoping it happens, the next step is to hold poll workers accountable for allowing voter fraud by not checking for ID’s.

      Please rethink that idea for a moment. One of the problems that We The People have, is too often we think that government solves a problem. But — gov. IS the problem. If we believe in each State’s Sovereignty and want to KEEP it, we should act at the local/state level, and stop expecting the Federal Government to act. Voter photo ID needs to be passed at the local/state level. It will more likely be upheld, then. And many states already have that law, many are acting to pass it. One problem may be that ‘state legislatures’ are passing it, whereas, if the people put it on the ballot, for a vote By The People, it would pass muster. Missouri did this in 2005 or 2007, and Obama/Holder have not interfered. I wonder. Minnesota has Voter ID on the ballot this Fall. The people really should be doing this in every state. And Texas and New Mexico need a law like AZ HB 1070. The states should be the ones ‘on the attack’. Keep the feds in their place.

    Voter laws are one of the last states’ rights in the Constitution that we need to hang on to. Unfortunately, Texas is one of the states whose rights have been circumvented and we need to strive to get them reinstated. Please, no more national voter laws!

    Obama and his whole bunch are absurd and corrupt beyond the imagination of most honorable or even semi honorable folks.

    “Only U.S. citizens should be allowed to vote.” Should …? What is this ‘should’ business? It-is-the-law that ONLY U.S. citizens are allowed to vote in any govt election anywhere in the land. There’s no rhyme, reason or room for – should.

    Having a photo ID card is a reasonable step to ensure the integrity of the process. Reasonable step …? Saying it’s a ‘reasonable step’ makes it sound like there’s room for discussion or negotiation. There isn’t room for either. Photo ID’s with a reasonably matching written description (age, sex, etc.) should be – mandated – end of story.

    “The fact that Obama and Holder (and Dems, et al) oppose such measures means that the sanctity of the ballot box is of little concern to them.” Little concern…? There’s not the tiniest, infinitesimal iota of ‘concern’ from this bunch re the sanctity of the ballot box. This is whimsy, Chicago style politics being played in the WH.

    That Republicans, Independents (1?), or even semi conservative Dems haven’t raised and sustained the hue and cry re the myriad abuses of Executive Power within the Obama Administration is sad testimony to the lack of ‘backbone’ and moral stature/turpitude of those who, in accordance with their oath of office, are ‘supposed’ to be honorably managing the affairs of the U.S.A in accordance with the Constitution and Rule of Law.

    And yet O’ wants to suppress the Military vote while accusing the states of suppressing. What a spineless two faced hypocrite.

    Obama Campaign Sues in Bid to Suppress Military Vote

    In a move that could have an impact on the final result of the presidential election, Barack Obama’s campaign has sued Ohio to block a measure which extends early voting for members of the military.

    The action brought quick responses from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and as many as 15 military groups.
