New Allegations: DOJ Says “Don’t Purge Dead or Ineligible From Voting Rolls”

(Update: Here is Julie Fernandes talking about voter ID laws, you know those laws that keep illegal immigrants from voting?)

“Its not whether it makes sense or is rational for states to have voter ID laws because they serve some interest that they think is worthy. Right?”

Here’s the article from J. Christian Adams which recounts how Julie Fernandes at the DOJ decided not to take dead people off the polls.

————————————————————————————————-

It’s not just the New Black Panther case: in November 2009, political appointee Julie Fernandes told a packed room of Voting Section employees to simply ignore this provision of the “Motor Voter” law.

By J. Christian Adams, PJTV.com

I was at the Voting Section of the Justice Department for over five years. This office is responsible for enforcing most federal election laws which do not involve criminal matters. My previous articles at Pajamas Media have spoken of the DOJ’s lawless abandonment of race-neutral enforcement of voting laws, and other outrageous conduct. I will continue to publish here at Pajamas Media more instances of failure to enforce the law equally by the Department.

One such instance relates to the Motor Voter law, and will shock Americans who care about integrity in the electoral process.

The “Motor Voter” law was passed in 1993 to promote greater voter registration in the United States. It did this — most Americans now know from visits to the DMV — by requiring states to offer voter registration materials whenever someone had contact with a variety of state offices. These included welfare offices, social service agencies, and motor vehicle departments.

A lesser-known provision also obliged the states to ensure that no ineligible voters were on the rolls — including dead people, felons, and people who had moved. Our current Department of Justice is anxious to encourage the obligations to get everyone registered, but explicitly unwilling to enforce federal law requiring states to remove the dead or ineligible from the rolls.

In November 2009, the entire Voting Section was invited to a meeting with Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes, a political employee serving at the pleasure of the attorney general. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss Motor Voter enforcement decisions.

The room was packed with dozens of Voting Section employees when she made her announcement regarding the provisions related to voter list integrity:

We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.

Jaws dropped around the room.

    Well…my jaw is dropping now. Impeach them all! Oh, I know. Here's better idea that has a better chance of working: go to the polls in November and vote out whatever incumbent is running for re-election and replace that person with a candidate that subscribes to honest, conservative political principles. Maybe that person will win and will begin to work to defeat this insanity called the federal government.

    • Ben from Texas says:

      I agree with you Larry ,I’m voting out every incumbent this fall that I can on BOTH sides…The ones that have been in for several years have not done their job enforcing the Border or upholding the constitution..As far as the Department of Justice,that name is a joke them wanting to keep dead people on the rolls because the dead vote will be claimed as DemocoRATS..I don’t trust the Republicans either because they have failed to control spending,or stopped voter fraud,or sealed our borders..Folks time to clean house this November and most important of all,, vote the communist muslim out of the White House in 2,012,or hopefully the usurp illegal alien liberal communist muslim prez will be thrown out before then..

    • SAD AND IN FEAR says:

      Right-On Larry But It Is Very Hard To Prove To The Obama Zombies That The Manchuriam Muslim Pres Obama Has Been On A Election Mode For 20 Months, Yikees, Plus All That Obamacare New Kool-Aid With The Bad Side Effects, May Cause Lying And Believing It, Yikees, Nov 2010 Correction Election, And Tea Parties With The Iron Lady Sarah Palin, OK OK Let The Chips Fall Where They Fall, Hope To Impeach The Chi-Town Obama Goons.

      ROME COULD BECOME THE U.S.A.?

    • To vote them out, the GOP must win votes of the deceased and the ineligible, otherwise, the dead and ineligible votes will win the elections for the Demonrats.

    come on folks do you have your heads up your butts or what is the problem? can you not see the discrimination obammy is promoting in OUR gov't? and how about the profiling obammy is allowing at our airports? it is the same as what arizona has put in their law. we all better get busy and get the resistance started and organized as it is looking like most of our politicians have refused to impeach obammy and his crew. hope you have plenty of ammo and your guns are cleaned up and lock and loaded.

    • Ben from Texas says:

      Patrick ,I may be mis-understanding where your coming from but If profiling in airports in AZ OR TEXAS will prevent another 911 and if profiling keeps Terrorist,criminals,and illegals out of this country so be it..If i break a law here in Texas or a traffic violation,the police have every right to check my drivers licence for insurance or ID to see who i am and where I’m from or even if I’m a LEGAL CITIZEN or even legal to drive….Showing proof of citizenship should be MANDATORY EVERYWHERE FOR EVERYONE,,BECAUSE illegals ARE ,taking MILLIONS OF AMERICAN jobs ,using our services,commiting crimes,SELLING drugs and other crimes..There are MILLIONS that have OVERSTAYED their work visa’s and if they don’t respect this country enough to abide by our laws then all of them Mexicans,chinese,south americans,russians,or any other race should be rounded up and DEPORTED immediately,there is only so much this country can do to help the poor.We cannot continue to let Millions of law breakers continue to flood in here or CIVIL WAR WILL BREAK OUT..Sneak into Mexico illegally and see what happens to you you’ll go to jail worse than a Turkish prison..

  3. Look at what Nobama supports: In an April 5th article, CBN News reportedly spoke with a “leading Muslim ” named "Anjem Choudary" who told them: "You can't say that Islam is a religion of peace…Because Islam does not mean peace. Islam means submission. So the Muslim is one who submits. There is a place for violence in Islam. There is a place for jihad in Islam."

    AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP… MUSLIMS MEAN US ALL KINDS OF HARM. Raymond.

    • Ben from Texas says:

      Your right Raymon,Muslim >means submission to ALLAH..The Muslim Ko’ran only means harm to EVERYONE who does not submit to ALLAH or death is the penality for non-conversion..If a Muslim believes what he or she reads in the Ko’ran they will eventually carry out what it REQUIRES them to do and thats convert to islam or be killed by them..Wake up America or learn to raise goats because Shriah Law is coming to those who do not stop this evil invasion..

    • marcel duranleau says:

      WAKE UP RIGHT. MUSLIM KENYAN MARXIST PROFESSOR OBAMA NEXT STALIN?
      BLACKS PANTHERS NEXT BROWN SHIRTS?
      HITLER TARGET JEWS AND CHRISTIANS.
      MUSLIM MARXIST OBAMA TARGET WHITES AND CHRISTIANS.
      WAKE UP ONE DAY AND HAVING A PRAYER RUG AND PRAYING TO HIS GOD ALLAH.
      AMERICANS DON`T TRUST A MARXIST PROFESSOR.

  4. EVERY person in the United States of America, could have a personal identity if they ask. Whether you drive an automobile or not there is always a way to get a verified ID. It is unvelievable that this woman makes this speech. Of course with a name like hers, she believes everyone, including illegals, should vote because they can get the person they want elected. It is unlawful for anyone, who does not have a verified ID to vote in ANY ELECTION! There is always, for verification, a LAWFUL BIRTH CERTIFICATE. They are required, by law to hold any office of our federal government, with only ONE exception.

    • Ben from Texas says:

      Your right Guest her name ”FERNANDES” TELL IT ALL…HER WANTING STATE EMPLOYESS UNDER HER POWER TO IGNORE STATE LAW,..SHE’S NO AMERICAN BECAUSE SHE’S FAVORING ILLEGAL ALIENS TO VOTE HERE ,OUTRAGEOUS,…SHE SHOULD BE FIRED AND A PATRIOT PUT IN HER POSITION ..ONE THAT WILL ENFORCE STATE LAW AND NOT ENCOURAGE ALIENS TO BREAK IT OR ENCOURAGE STATE EMPLOYEES TO BREAK STATE LAW BY NOT ENFORCING IT..AND I’LL MENTION THE ”ONE EXCEPTION ”YOU SPEAK OF AND HIS NAME IS ”BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA II

      • You're right.

      • her name ''FERNANDES'' TELL IT ALL

        That's bullshit. There are US citizens named Fernandez. Her name doesn't explain why she's yet another crooked member of the Oilbama administration anymore than his middle name of Hussein explains why Israelis distrust and dislike him. They're race-baiting and comments like yours indicate you're taking the bait. Stop. Don't take the bait they're offering.

        There's no need for political correctness, either. Call a dumbass "dumbass" and a criminal "criminal" wherever you see one (and you'll see a whole bunch of each in the Oilbama administration and on Capitol Hill these days). But don't get caught up in identity politics in the form of racial stereotyping. A black dumbass is a dumbass and a black criminal is a criminal, just as a white dumbass is a dumbass and a white criminal is a criminal. And we don't need dumbasses or criminals, whether they're black or white, in the DOJ, the White House, or on capitol Hill.

    • marcel duranleau says:

      CHECK FIRST WITH MUSLIM KENYAN MAR XIST PROFESSOR OBAMA. WHERE IS HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE? I don`t know why americans call him president. Look&lt ;www.obamacrimes.com/

      I MEAN WE HAVE A STRANGE GOVERNMENT Charles manson gang at the White House.We must impeach
      this muslin marxist and vote all fascists out if not we will end up all americans with prayers rugs and praying to
      his God Allah. Remember americans never trust a marxist professor.

    • Maybe they could save their stubs from their unemployment checks !! Or they can take a few minutes out of their busy lives to get FREE state ID!!!! Those of us responsible enough to pay taxes and pay for their unemployment have taken time to get ID's to cash (what is left) of our paychecks!!

  5. Kenneth says:

    Where did this FAT LIPPED SCUM BAG come from??!! What ROCK did this UGLY CREATURE crawl out from??!! Talk about a USURPER!!!! Why isn't this IDIOT in PRISON??!!

  6. I don't know who that Fernandes woman thinks she is but one thing I do know is she is crazy as hell. I've lived in Indiana for a long,long time and our ID program for voting works very well. In my state if you don't drive you can get a state ID card with your picture on it . As far as this business of blacks not being able to vote– I don't know what planet that woman lives on but its not this one. These people need to come down from their ivory towers and check out what the real world is like.

  7. Steve Dolyniuk says:

    Obama & this present administration want illegals & the dead to vote, because they will vote for the idiot Democrats. Our country is in big trouble, but the Liberal Democrats want to keep it that way, because they don't care about theUSA, the Legal Citizens, or anything but themselves.We can only hope, that enough people wake up in time to vote them out. Actually most of the incumbants need to be voted out, from both parties. Term limits are needed now!!!

  8. Bill Kay says:

    Proof of U.S. citzenship to vote PERIOD any person not in compliance be fined and sent to jail PERIOD.

  9. Look at what Nobama has been doing. Israel was also refused key weapons systems upgrades and spare parts, even as Obama delivered Apache helicopters and F-16 fighters to Egypt. Israel's promised delivery of "bunker buster" bombs was also withheld. U.S. criticism of Israel became a daily news release. Moving into April, we learned that China's President Hu Jintao extracted a promise from the Obama government that would allow a possible UN sanction against Israel.

    • Ben from Texas says:

      Thats right Raymond and how about the 800 million obama gave Hamas in Gaza? A muslim helping muslims..

  10. Gramma73 says:

    This witch does not surprise me, after all she is African-American and works for holder. So what thaat 45% of blackmen don't have licenses???Wonder if it ever occurred to her that is because they are lawbreakers and probably lost their license. Also with Fernandes as a last name–tell you anything????????

    • auntiemadder says:

      Perhaps you didn't mean your comment to come across as saying that she's corrupt because she's black. Oilbama's surrounded himself with only the corrupt and evil, some of whom are black, some of whom are white, which makes sense as he is both black and white himself. If the Deputy Assistant Attorney selected by this administration was a white guy named John Smith or a white woman named Mary Lou, you could still bet your butt that John Smith or Mary Lou would be an America-hating, Modern Progressive (read: socialist) criminal.

  11. An Amish farmer walking through his field, notices a man drinking from his pond. The Amish man shouts: "Trink das wasser nicht. Die kuhen haben dahin gesheissen," which means: "Don't drink the water; the cows have crapped in it."

    The man shouts back: "I'm a Muslim, I don't understand. Please speak in English."
    The Amish man says: "Use two hands, you'll get more."

  12. What has 8 legs and 48 teeth? Ahmed's four wives.

  13. Q. Why do seagulls have wings?
    A. To beat the Muslims to the garbage dump.

  14. azwayne says:

    Everyone call senators and congress yours and any you have addresses for. Call your local elections office and governors offices it's as easy as commenting here, if someone can't show proof id they don't need to be voting, find who this ignoramous works for and have her fired, her boss too..

  15. ecidnac says:

    Julie is misinformed, one can obtain a picture ID in any state, to be used as an identification for buying alcohol, cigarettes, cashing checks and receiving public assistance, admission to hospitals or any other place where we have to show ID. The list goes on and on. I am always prepared to show mine and I don't feel offended when asked in the right environment. These people that want to make excuses for 'illegal' immigrants really tick me off.

  16. Read the rest of the article at Pajamas Media and now I see why they've not been worried that their constituents won't reelect them…or at least they're not worried about their living constituents. They have the votes of their dead constituents to make up the difference, and as long as those voters stay dead, they'll be loyal to them life – no, uh, for death – no, that's not right, either – they'll be loyal voters of them for a really long time.

  17. Carmen Fructuoso says:

    This woman is nuts!!! It's time to demand that the Secretary of State of California clean up those voter registrations and demand for IDs.

  18. This is what Obama want to bring to America….In March, a report came out of Pakistan that young Christian girls were being kidnapped and raped by Muslims. One girl was kidnapped after sharing Christ with a schoolmate. Her parents were told that she had converted to Islam and wished to leave her Christian home. She was killed fro leaving
    Islam.

  19. I'm amazed at how many web sites portray muslims as peaceful & misunderstood.
    Some of these sites say that muslims are the real victims, which is a pure lie.
    Some of these sites say that the Qur'an does not teach muslims to act violently
    against non muslims. THIS IS A LIE. THE QUR'AN DOES TEACH MUSLIMS
    THAT ALL NON MUSLIMS ARE EITHER TO CONVERT TO ISLAM OR BE KILLED.

  20. James Shelton says:

    Obviously one of the major problems with this country. The apointed educated idiots slipped into place of some authority under the radar. This thing has no commen sense. It has all been educated away. This drivel just oroves we are on the way to colapse.

  21. Whats the big deal, your have to show ID to buy dooze, cigarettes, you have to show proof your of age when getting a job. Anyone can go to the MVO and get a ID . My mother-in-lay never drove but she alway had an ID. So please don't blame voting on no ID, get off you behind and go get one. CHRISTINAN is crazy . wouldn't suprise me if she doesn't work for ACORN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. ENOUGH CHANGE ?????? NOBAMA IN 2012

  23. A village somewhere in Kenya is missing a demon.

  24. Q: What will most Muslims in this country eventually be asked?
    A:"Will the defendant please rise?"

  25. A Marxist group that has demanded the “destruction” of the U.S. and issued a call "to bring this Government down," is the recipient of stimulus funds from the Obama American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This same group, The Brecht Forum, has also called for the complete takeover of insurance companies and farms in America.

    The word "democrat" is just another word for "communist".

  26. It looks like Julie Fernandez is setting up the election process to steal another election by using voter fraud, dead people, non citizens, criminals, and people living under stolen identity.

    She was apparently asleep when more people voted in Ohio than were registered to vote.

    angry cat

  27. Phony lying S.O.B.'s!!!!

  28. I will tell you one thing, this Julie Fernandez, this bigoted ass better be fired ASAP. I've already written to Boehner, and many other members of congress to keep pressing on this issue. This girl is an embarrassment to everyone and certainly to the female population as we have always prided ourselves in having intelligent women in leadership positions.

Speak Your Mind
