Obama Justice Dept. Fights Constitutional Laws Cracking Down on Voter Fraud


It appears that the Obama Administration is once again utilizing the Department of Justice (DOJ) as a political tool, this time to challenge voter identification laws—like one already upheld by the Supreme Court—that Democrats claim discriminate against minorities…

Under this far-fetched discrimination theory a chunk of citizens that would normally vote Democrat couldn’t cast ballots because they can’t prove their identity.

That’s because they are either too poor or too ignorant to get a valid identification—provided free in many of the states that have passed voter ID laws—that proves they are who they say they are. This unbelievable theory has gained momentum in the last few months, with the powerful chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz) calling ID laws a “full-scale assault” on minority voters designed to “rig” elections for Republicans.

Eight states have strict laws that require a voter to provide picture identification in order to cast a ballot. All but two of the states—Georgia and Indiana—passed their measures this year and the DOJ’s bloated civil rights division has vowed to ensure that they don’t have a racially discriminatory purpose or effect. Targets of the DOJ’s discrimination probe are Kansas, Wisconsin, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Mississippi.

Reiterating the administration’s “commitment to robust civil rights enforcement,” Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Thomas Perez confirmed last week that DOJ lawyers are reviewing some of the recently-enacted state laws to ensure that they are not racially discriminatory. “We have received numerous inquiries about recently enacted state laws relating to voter identification requirements, voter registration requirements and changes to early voting procedures,” Perez said, adding that “we are carefully reviewing these laws.”

In 2008 the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s voter ID law, ruling that….

    I'm a minority, I show my id every time i vote!! EVERY ONE SHOULD HAVE TO!!!!

  2. I show my ID when I vote, no problem. They don't want people to be required to show an ID because they want to commit fraud. If they can't commit fraud then some of their candidates might not win.

    Voters should show an ID, and ALL of the votes should be counted.

    • They can't vote but one time with an ID….Indiana is having some issues right now with people stealing identities from living people, not just the dead and casting votes…..so many reasons to impeach but no one does a thing. We'll be taken prisoner for being belligerent and complaining about the government…will they help us then? Not a chance….we are ruined.

    In the first place, it should be mandatory that they learn to speak and read ENGLISH before they get a license, at least enough to read ROAD SIGNS. So if they cannot do this, and ASSIMILATE into our country and the benifits and freedoms that we have, they need to BE AMERICANS TO VOTE, the same as those who walked off the boats at Ellis Island, and come here and do it right, otherwise, go back to where you came from. Voting is an important process, where we can get the BEST MAN OR WOMAN FOR THE JOB! And it helps to know something about the importance of voting. There is far more to voting than saying you like someone because of race or religion, it is more involved, and it should not be taken lightly. To live here, you should first have to become LEGAL!!! And if you’re not, then so sad, so very sad. You have four years to learn what you need to, for the next electio, and if I were you, I’d go do what I must in order to vote the next time. If someone is offended by this, remember this, there are lots of things and people to offend us, so join the “Offened By Lots Club”!

  4. If they are protesting Voter Picture ID and using the cost of obtaining this ID, I think there are enough True Citizens that will help with the cost. The only thing they will have to provide is verified proof of birth and citizenship and if they truly want to vote legally, with most of them being on Welfare or Government assistance, picture ID and proof of us citizenship is something they have to turn in to get the benefits. Need a strong Lawyer on this to keep all these fradulent votes from electing this illegal person as president again.

    • You’re right. Only Citizens of the U.S. should be allowed to vote. Wait and see — he’ll try to get around that AGAIN.

  5. For starters many minorities manage to get picture id to buy beer or other alcholic beverages and all motor vehicle depts offer cheap non driver picture ids. The only excuse one would have for not being able to get a picture id today would be lack of transportation and all political parties would respond to that by offering rides. So since we have to show picture id to fly from state to state, to open a bank acct and buy beer all states should require picture id for voting which is not just a right, but a priviledge. Seems to me those who object are objecting simply because they want to get people not eligible to vote to vote for them as was the case in Nevada when many illegals voted.

    HEY EVERYBODY, READ THE 14 AMENDMENT!!!!!!!!!!! ONLY CITIZENS OR NATURALIZED CITIZENS HAVE RIGHTS UNDER THE PEOPLES CONSTITUTION

  7. If the poor peeepul are too lazy to get an ID then they don't need to vote.

  8. Grandmas Mad says:

    My 96 year old immigrant Aunt had DMV provided ID…(non-driver ID)…..so….those that say that they can't get ID…come forward with info and we will supply it for you…. end of problem….

  9. Democrats don’t support tougher voting laws because they support voter fraud. ACORN is proof positive of that.

  10. SEAN MURRY says:

    Whats the big deal i had to show my id to the poll judges they want the ilegalls to vote for obummer and get away with it.

  11. They are against picture Id so the illegals can vote and ACORN will bus them around so they can vote several times to make sure Obama and the democrats win

  12. Seriously, I had to provide a picture at the AT&T store…….if you don't file a tax return or aren't a student, one shouldn't be allowed to vote anyway…..if you're on the govt dole, it's a conflict of interest. If there is a will to vote, a picture I'd is not a problem…….voting is a priviledge, not a right.

  13. Seeks_the_truth says:

    Ok, here we go again with the race card. Is the Obummer admin trying to say if you are Black (minorities) you can't get an ID? Anyone who receive government supplements MUST show an ID when they applied. If they had an ID for welfare, they have a picture ID for voting. So now being Black means you need tests "dummied down" and you haven't the mind to get a photo ID. If I was black I would be insulted.
    Why doesn't Obummer just use that honesty and transparency he preached in 2008. Why doesn't he just come out and say to implement the photo ID to vote would lose him the illegal aliens votes. They are the only ones who can't get a LEGAL photo ID. Besides, they have no right to vote let alone ANY rights under OUR Constitution.

    Implementing the photo ID to vote would put a big kink in the NBPP's plan to AGAIN intimidate at the polls. They did say 2012 was going to be way worst than 2008. I would LOVE for them to try it in MY neighborhood.

    Voter fraud and illegal donations are what put obozo in the WH!! He was never 'elected,' he was bought and paid for, never 'won' any election!! IF he even comes close to being elected, this time, it will be voter fraud and illegal donations and bought and paid for, all over again!!
    Is there a pattern here, like most libturd elections?? WE gotta STOP it, by any means available!! Pay close attention, folks, it's already in the works!!

    • Edwardkoziol says:

      Vince you are right on this just the other day people were interviewed and they say that they never signed a petition for Obozo.But with Holder as AG nothing will happen the same way he dismissed the Philly incident with the black panthers.
