As Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. summarized, “They don’t want to do anything about the vulnerabilities in the system. That means they really don’t want elections that are secure and have integrity. It’s highly dangerous that the attorney general has that view toward safe and secure elections.”
President Obama and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department have a new obsession to obstruct any state’s passing of voter-identification laws, even recently attacking South Carolina and my own state of Texas. Holder calls voter ID laws “unnecessary” and says voter fraud “doesn’t exist,” but new video proof in his own voting precinct proves otherwise.
Obama’s administration says they’re against voter ID laws because they are valiantly trying to keep minorities and the poor from being unfairly discriminated against. But the truth is that they are trying to keep President Obama in office. They know that voter IDs are bad business for this White House’s campaign and re-election.
In the last couple weeks, video proof from Holder’s own voting precinct in Washington, D.C., revealed voter fraud is alive and well in the nation’s capital. On primary election day, April 3, a representative from James O’Keefe’s nonprofit organization Project Veritas simply strolled into the polling place and was offered the ballot for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder after merely stating his name and address. Though not being asked for ID, O’Keefe’s assistant added that he forgot his ID, to which the poll worker retorted, “You don’t need it. It’s all right. As long as you’re in here, you’re on our list, and that’s who you say you are, you’re OK.”
O’Keefe’s assistant then replied, “I would feel more comfortable if I just had my ID. Is it all right if I go get it?” After the poll worker agreed, O’Keefe’s assistant said as he walked away, “I’ll be back faster than you can say furious,” playing on the scandalous Fast and Furious gun-smuggling debacle by Holder’s Department of Justice.
Of course, rather than confessing to culpability or that there might be a flaw in the election process, the District of Columbia Board of Elections announced last week that it was launching an investigation to possibly bring charges against Project Veritas.
