Skip to comments.Eric Holder a champion of minority voter fraud
Posted on 03/18/2014 11:05:49 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax
A fools errand is what Bill Tucker, chair of the political-action committee of the NAACPs Tallahassee branch, called Florida Governor Rick Scotts renewed efforts to purge the states voter rolls of non-citizens. Tucker claimed the purge would cast another dark shadow on Florida because it would disproportionately affect Floridas most vulnerable groups, that of course being minorities. What a remarkable coincidence that Tucker should believe, just as Attorney General Eric Holder, that a crime is not NEARLY as important as the race of those who commit it. (1)
And as for the fools errand, comment, Tucker might just be right. For the 1992 Motor Voter Act does NOT require that elections officials verify citizenship. They are not even required to ASK applicants if they are American citizens. Add to that the fact that Supervisors of Elections are only able to investigate voter fraud if...

Pretty obvious, huh?
Organizing for Subversion
They complain about Crimea vote
So the rights of dead minority voters outweigh the rights of dead white voters, yes?
” it would disproportionately affect Floridas most vulnerable groups, that of course being illegal voters.”
Rigging the next election. This is what libs do during the down time between voting periods. They have turned it into an art and a science.
Voter fraud-—the only way to achieve Obama’s dream of a permanent Dem majority.
The only thing the Motor Voter Act ever did was to give fraudsters and cheaters a new technique by which to ply their sinister trade.
I'm surprised that they only didn't require elections officials to ask applicants if they are American citizens. I was under the incorrect impression that they forbade elections officials from asking such "demeaning" and "bigoted" questions. Well, as long as they are permitted to ask such questions, their supervisors - the state and county election boards - SHOULD REQUIRE THEM TO ASK NEW VOTER REGISTRANTS IF THEY ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS. And even further, elections officials SHOULD REQUIRE THAT NEW REGISTRANTS PRESESENT DOCUMENTATION OF CITIZENSHIP, EITHER A BIRTH CERTIFICATE IF BORN IN THE US OR ELSEWHERE IN AMERICAN TERRITORY (e.g., Puerto Rico) OR A NATURALIZATION DOCUMENT IF NOT. Nothing racist about that. Just enforcing the state law, on the books in every state of the union, that only American citizens may vote in American elections!
And while we're at trying to improve the integrity of the election process, let's repeal the entire Motor Voter Act! (BTW, it was passed by a 'Rat controlled Congress in 1993 (NOT 1992), the first bill signed into law by the then new President Bill Clinton.)
I have worked elections and we are 'allowed' to compare the address on the driver's license to that on the voter roll but we were instructed we were 'not' to use the photo as identification.
You said a lot there in very few words!
Are you saying that Florida does not issue driver's licenses to aliens by law? Or can a an alien in the country on a visa or valid "green card" obtain one?
The Founding Fathers had no interest in having universal suffrage--not even universal white male suffrage. The movement in that direction, really did not kick in until the 1820s.
We need to reexamine the premise that people should only have to prove they exist in order to vote in every election--even where they do not even understand the functions of the offices they are voting to fill.
impeach and remove
Thanks to Charlie!
If you are talking about Holder and elections, you knew he was a big problem from the get-go when, a month or two after assuming office, his DOJ decided, for no logical reason, to drop the prosecution of the New Black Panthers, who were charged by the outgoing Bush DOJ with voter intimidation when they stood in front of a Philadelphia polling place on Election Day 2008 with uniforms and weapons.
Just as this posted article states: "a crime is not nearly as important as the race of those who commit it."
Before that he fired the guy investigating Kevin Johnson the mayor of sacramento
Voter intimidation must have been the reason.
In Wisconsin the citizenship question is reduced to a statement in a sea of fine print on the registration application where the applicant is supposed to color in a tiny dot if he/she is a citizen. Half the time the registrar misses whether that is colored in and just accepts the application. If the registrar catches it later, she colors it in.
Thanks for the ping.
Why limit this turd to championing just that.
Eric Holder: caught red handed running guns out of the United States. Eric Holder: caught smuggling the drugs he traded the guns for back into the United States. Eric Holder: caught laundering the drug and gun running money through corrupt banks down in South America. Eric Holder: held in criminal Contempt of the US Congress. Eric Holder: caught using the power of the Office of the Attorney General to attack news reporters who might threaten the criminal cabal he is a part of. And, Eric Holder: caught lying to the House Judiciary Committee and the worst he faces is he might lose his job.
Black panters? Who the #311 is afraid of some little punks holding sticks? I’d DARE them to stand in my way.
Fortunately I live in a place consisting of old people.
What? An NBC reporter?
I expect democrat illegals to vote - expect them to lie - expect them to refuse jury duty. That's normal. But an NBC reporter asking a real news question? Knock me over with a feather...that's flat out weird.
Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. Voter fraud is a time-honored American tradition. Where would this great country be without the likes of Boss Tweed, Richard Daly, Big Bill Thompson, Lyndon Banes Johnson, John F. Kennedy and the brave men and women of Tammany Hall and ACORN?
What does your dynamic "conservative" GOP governor have to say about that? And what do your state legislative GOP majorities think? Do they even recognize the problem?
Indeed. Thanks for the ping!
This is actually not an uncommon way by which aliens on registered voting lists are trapped and caught. I've heard of a number of cases such as this. They register illegally to vote, which puts them in a potential local jury pool, and so can be called up for jury duty. When they're called for jury duty and try to get out by claiming they aren't citizens, they've incriminated themselves as illegal voters. But, odds are that they won't get much of a penalty of any kind (except maybe they'll be removed from the voting lists, as some Florida state officials wish to do) despite the fact that I've been told that in Florida, illegal voting is a felony.
Holder is not interested in crimes against most white people, and some blacks.
Black Panther Party is only one example.
The labor thugs in Wisconsin who beat a black man is another.
Knockout game thugs, another. No hate crime charges.
Black home invasions of whites. No hate crime charges.
Holder was educated by white-hating lawyers at Harvard Law School including Ogletree and Derek Bell, among others. So was Obama.
Explains a lot, if not all of the reasons behind their impeachable behavior.
The NAACP, once a decent organization, has now devolved into a hate-whitey group of wackojobs and professional haters.
It was formed by blacks and whites (esp. Jewish lawyers who were well acquainted with being the targets of religious discrimination), to combat the blatantly terrible racial prejudice in America.
Today, the NAACP is a degenerate hate organization by itself, and who suffers from it the most, the decent blacks who once looked to it to help them, not to promote lawlessness regarding voter fraud and intimidation.
Somewhere George Orwell is spinning in his grave.
Felony, shmelony. Emma Lazarus counts them as huddled masses. They’re from a teeming shore. And they’re yearning to not only breath free, but eat free, vote free, and play free games such as Pac Man and knock-down.
That is called "pencil whipping"....a civil servant falsifyng an offical document without doing the evidentiary bgrnd, is subject to termination and jailtime.
The GOP and our Governor are well aware of the problem. I’ve lived here 27 years and photo Voter ID has been approved by the legislature at least 4 times, enjoys overwhelming popular support, but has been stopped in the courts every time, including now where it is in the Supreme Court as I write. The Wisconsin Supreme Court seems to be stalling its decision.
And we dare not even speak of getting rid of the Registration at the Polls law. A former US Senator (Russ Feingold) even tried to make that odious procedure a national law but we kicked him out of office before he could accomplish that. Registration at the polls does not allow the city clerks the opportunity to check residence, or other particulars before the election. It’s too late after the votes are cast and counted.
Our voting regulations are governed by an “independent” body called the Government Accountability Board. The Governor has no control over them, except to replace them individually when their terms expire. A lot of us think that the GAB should be disbanded, but nobody has come up with a plan yet. The GAB is composed of a lot of left leaning former judges and others who were appointed by the previous Democrat Governor.
Types of documents commonly falsified may include:
◾Tax returns and income statements
◾Bank account records
◾Business record keeping books
◾Immigration documents (such as visas, passports, etc.)
◾Identification cards and birth certificates
Many different types of acts can be considered as falsifying a document, including:
◾Altering or misrepresenting factual information such as prices or monetary amounts
◾Stating false information when requested to provide truthful statements
◾Forging a signature
◾Using official letterheads without authorization
◾Concealing assets or property WRT obtaining federal/state grants))
◾Knowingly using or distributing a fake document
A person can only be held criminally liable if they are deliberately acting with the intention of deceiving or defrauding another party. /
Falsifying documents is a very serious offense and is generally classified as a felony. This means that a person charged with falsifying documents may be subject to the following legal penalties:
◾Having to pay a monetary fine
◾Incarceration in a prison facility
Depending on the gravity of the offense, as well as individual state laws, falsifying documents can result in a prison sentence of 5-10 years. Also, if government documents or authorities were involved, the legal penalties may be more severe. ..... legal penalties may increase with repeat offenses.
The penalty for falsifying government documents is outlined in the Crimes Act of 1958.
Well, Bill, a little earlier. Most states had done away with property restrictions to vote by the 1820s, but pretty close.
I agree with all this, and still don’t think it has changed the outcomes of many elections, and few significant ones. The two biggest frauds in my lifetime were Cook Co. in 1960 and the “early call” of FL in 2000.
Actually, I believe South Carolina still restricted the vote to the 1840s.
My personal feeling is that with the increased urbanization--however aesthetically unfortunate--it would not be practical to return to an acreage requirement--as in the Northwest Ordinance. What should, however, be made an issue is allowing people being bribed by completely unearned benefits, to vote for any level of Government that is bribing them.
Just raising the issue would increase awareness of the problem, and increase the vote among Conservatives.
Lemme break this down for you before we are all sent to Eric Holder Political Re-Education Camp, OK?
You see, my children, African-Americans were in bondage for 400 years in the New World. Of course, during that entire period of white exploitation of this noble race, the slaves were denied the franchise.
As anyone who has completed a New Math course can easily deduce, these denied votes would easily increase to a number in the BILLIONS over the centuries, not to mention the millions upon millions who perished in the sea voyage from Africa to our shores. (Number source: Maya Angelou)
That means, as night follows day, that the descendants of these former slaves have the right ... nay the duty ... to make up for all those of years of missed elections. They must reclaim the lost rights of their ancestors. They know through race memory exactly how those ancestors would have voted, had they the chance. So, vote for them they must. Early. Often. Electronically. By Mail. By appearing at multiple precincts in the Federally Funded Church Van, and if needs be, appearing as a virtual voter construct in the geek-mind of some young nerd who grew up on Sim City.
In the case of African-American women, even after Emancipation they were denied the right to vote by vicious, patriarchal, hierarchical, gender-normative, imperialist, colonial men ... so they are owed ... in addition to a free cell phone, Sec 8 housing, EBT, AFDC, and Medical, as many extra votes as needed to assure their continued reception of these benefits.
Illegal aliens are another case in point where you Republicans and Conservatives need a little straightening out. They are also the descendants of slaves and other oppressed classes. In their case, they reach back into the mists of colonial time to use the names of as many of their ancestors, legitimate and otherwise, as they possibly can, honoring them with multiple identities and making sure that each identity has full rights, benefits, and any goodies left lying around by other oppressed minorities. That includes the vote for each identity. Fair is fair.
I hope you fanatical Right Wing Racists will see the justice here. After all, it's not as if minority voters are out to strip you of the franchise ... unless absolutely necessary of course.
I realize that it's semi-satirical, but two minor quibbles:
(1) Minority Voter Fraud (A bit of a redundancy there.)
Actually voter fraud in the US was pretty much perfected by whites, particularly white ethnic-dominated big city Democrat machines. This relatively new "minority" voter fraud is mostly masterminded and managed from above by leftist white Democratic hacks with some "minorities" as willing pawns carrying out their schemes in exchange for government handouts, while the rest of the country is ripped off. Votes for handouts, with some voter fraud in the mix, was very characteristic of the FDR New Deal era, and there were relatively few blacks involved in those schemes back then.
(2)African-Americans were in bondage for 400 years in the New World. Of course, during that entire period of white exploitation of this noble race, the slaves were denied the franchise.
A arithmetical gaffe by the Holderites here. Columbus comes to the New World in 1492. 400 years later is 1892, AFTER the slaves in the US were emancipated, and AFTER slavery ended in just about the entire New World. But to expect the current left to be able to know basic arithmetic and history is expecting too much, their minds being so underdeveloped. Yes, a mind is a terrible thing to waste!
Yes, I remember that vaguely. I think the investigator held a long-time civil service position in the DOJ and was forced to resign.
But I was thinking only of Holder's activities with respect to election law.
Holder is the quintessential race racketeer..
Oh, I’m all for it, but my evidence suggests that by no later than the mid-1820s ALL states had gotten rid of property requirements.
Been some years since i came across the source of my impression that South Carolina still limited the franchise until about the time of the Polk election; but, to be frank, I am not sure that it was based purely on a property requirement.
(1.) Your eurocentric views of exploration history are bound to get you in trouble in the Political Re-Education Camps now under construction by Homeland Security. African traders were sailing back and forth to the New World for ages before these white devils arrived with their diseases, slavery, and fast food franchises.
(2.) voter fraud in the US was pretty much perfected by whites, Yabut, black people were working on it and white men jumped on it. As you know, white men can't jump.
