We have been following the Obama administration’s effort to grease the skids for the 2012 election by enabling voter fraud, with the cooperation of various left-wing groups. Eric Holder announced at a speech at the Lyndon Johnson Library in Austin that the Department of Justice would take a hostile view of the various statutes that states have enacted to protect ballot integrity.
Thus, it was no surprise when DOJ announced today that it has rejected South Carolina’s voter identification law. Under Eric Holder, the Department of Justice has become a political arm of the Democratic Party. South Carolina officials said that they would fight DOJ’s ruling in court, pointing out that the Department was relying on grotesquely inaccurate data:
Department of Motor Vehicles executive director Kevin Shwedo said the state Election Commission knew it was using inaccurate data when it released reports showing nearly 240,000 active and inactive voters lacked driver’s licenses or ID cards.
Shwedo sent the state’s attorney general an analysis showing that 207,000 of those voters live in other states, allowed their ID cards to expire, probably have licenses with names that didn’t match voter records or were dead. He said the commission created “artificially high numbers to excite the masses.”
How many of those 207,000 will cast ballots for Democratic candidates in November if Obama and Holder get their way? A lot, I suspect.
