Obama Justice Dept. Denies Military Vote, Blames GOP
Written By : Warner Todd Huston
The head of the Obama Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, Tom Perez, admitted this week that he has no real intention of trying to assure that members of our military are afforded their right to vote, and will not attempt in a timely fashion to enforce the MOVE Act (Military and Overseas Voter Empower Act) intended to make sure that our soldiers get their ballots with time enough to return them so that they can be counted on election day.
Perez made a very weak pledge that the Dept. of Justice would, “continue to vigilantly enforce [the] law” to make sure the military votes are counted, but he made it clear that all he is prepared to do is sue states long after the November 2 elections are over. In other words, Perez is saying that the DOJ will sue states after the election, long after the votes go uncounted and our soldier’s votes are essentially taken away from them
Well they are at it again in Ohio and 15 military groups have lined up to oppose him in court. This country has a long history of allowing a bit more lee way when it comes to allowing more time and special provisions for our military and their voting rights. The nation has long recognised that there are and need to be special considerations for our military due to the nature of their duties. Then came obama and all that changed. These are the same people who believe that requiring an I.D. to vote is somehow tantamount to the rebirth of the democrats Poll Tax of the South

Fifteen military groups spoke out in opposition to the Obama Administration’s federal lawsuit to restrict military voting in Ohio.
They claim the Ohio suit is threatening certain voter protections that they have as service members.
