Breaking: Eric Holder Was Just Slapped Down By Federal Court Over Voter ID

A Federal Court smacked down Eric Holder’s Justice Department today when it refused to block North Carolina’s “controversial” voter ID law. The law, which simply requires voters to bring a valid ID to prove their citizenship, was attacked in a lawsuit brought by the Justice Department last September.

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, decscribed the decision as a huge setback to Eric Holder:

“It is an embarrassing defeat for the Holder Justice Department. The court’s decision eviscerates Eric Holder’s politicized and racially inflammatory legal assault on commonsense election integrity measures. The court expressly rejected the Department of Justice’s contention that minorities are harmed by commonsense measures that help secure honest elections. The court’s dramatic rejection of Holder’s legal theory shows that that the DOJ’s lawsuit, which was coordinated with political activists at the White House, was always more about cynical political and racial appeals than upholding the law.”

  1. You don't hear any complaints about having valid ID at the welfare offices though do you?

  2. Doesn't anyone applying for food stamps, Medicaid, disability benefits, etc. have to provide identification to obtain any of these benefits? Didn't everyone applying for Obamacare have to provide identification? So why shouldn't a person have to provide identification to register to vote and to cast a vote? So, why is it discriminatory to have to provide identification to register to vote and to cast a vote in an election?

    Evidently, Mr. Holder believes that illegal votes are the only means of Democrats winning an election.

    • Holder, and all demon-rats, wants all illegals to vote for them, in addition to dead people's votes, Porky Pig's, Donald Duck's, and Mickey Mouse's. They wouldn't be in office if all of the above hadn't voted for them. Fraud charges should be brought against those criminals. It gets pretty bad when their corruption is 'right in your face' criminal acts that they think nobody will ever notice…I had to laugh when the DOJ mentioned that minorities are hurt by commonsense measures that help secure honest elections, when Eric Holder doesn't know the first thing about being honest, especially honest elections.

  3. This shady Character Holder is looking for a way to have illegals vote coming next Nov. 2014, that is the way it seems. If these people on public assistance needs to show proper ID in order to collect benefits so what is Holder's problem? unless he is about to have illegals vote and that is FRAUD!!!

  4. Makes you proud to be from NC.
