AG Holder To Protect Voting Rights Of The Dead

Leave it to the democrats to find a new minority group who rights are being infringed upon ....the dead. In all fairness in certain locations in the U.S. the dead have long been a large and growing part of the democrats voter base but as far as I know this may be the first time that the democrats have decided to speak openly on the injustice of disenfranchising the dead and stifling their largely silent voices. In 2009 there were 2.5 million deaths in the U.S. over 10 years that is 25,000,000 voters who irregardless of their voting histories while alive seem to have a come to Jesus moment upon death and vote nearly 100 % democrat after shuffling off the mortal coil. When asked Social Scientists can't seem to explain this conversion and are continuing to study the issue. In any case our well respected Attorney General eric holder has asked the state of Florida to please cease and desist from purging their voting rolls of some 53,000 dead, ILLEGALS  and non citizens.

DOJ suddenly interested in FLA voter rolls

Our friend Andrew Malcolm, over at Investors Business Daily, highlights an interesting story coming to us from Washington, but involving the Sunshine State. It seems that Florida’s recent efforts to conduct a thorough review of their voter rolls and purge the ineligible or the … er… dead, have drawn the Attorney General. And what might the Department of Justice have to say about this record-keeping audit? Clearly, this has to be stopped.
Washington has ordered Florida to end its effort to remove ineligible voters from the state’s voter rolls. This is breathtaking. It couldn’t be clearer that the government is actively promoting voter fraud.
Somehow, the DOJ has determined that purging illegal voters — felons, noncitizens, the deceased — from the rolls is a violation of the 1965 Voting Rights Act as well as the 1993 National Voter Registration Act. According to the Miami Herald, the department’s lead civil rights attorney, T. Christian Herren Jr., sent the state “a detailed two-page letter” on Thursday demanding that Florida’s elections division shut down its pursuit.
So… it’s a violation of the Voting RIGHTS Act to make sure that everyone voting is actually eligible and has the RIGHT to vote, eh? But if Florida is running around purging a bunch of eligible people from the rolls and depriving them of their fundamental rights, I can understand how Eric Holder would feel the need to intervene. So, Andrew, how many people are being purged from the rolls thus far?
What’s missing from Herren’s complaint is the fact that no one is actually moved off the rolls until they are found to be ineligible. Simply sending names to county elections supervisors to confirm eligibility, which is what Florida officials are doing, discriminates against no one. Either the person is eligible to vote or not.
No one is harassed or summarily tossed off the voter rolls. There is no poll tax or literacy test.
Groups on the left could find “discrimination” on Mars. So of course they declare that Florida’s attempt to certify the integrity of its voter rosters is discriminatory. They lament that requiring the voters in question to prove they are eligible is a burden on voters rather than on government.
