Voter ID - Eric Holder Goes To War Against S. Carolina

Posted by Brian
The Holder/Obama Justice Department, in its continued race-based approach to voting rights, has blocked a S. Carolina law requiring that voters actually prove that they are who they say they are before stepping into the voting booth.  The the civil rights activists who continue to claim that these laws disenfranchise voters, with minorities of course, hardiest hit, use this straw-man argument over and over against Republicans in order to paint the GOP as anti-black, anti-immigrant, and anti-elderly.  No proof, mind you, that it suppresses voting.  In fact, the opposite has been shown to be true in Georgia, where voter ID is mandatory. Turnout in Georgia increased, including an increase in the number of blacks who voted, and an increase of Democrat voters by over 100,000 from 2004 to 2008. So why is Eric Holder and the Justice Department opposed to voter ID requirements.  Because it has never been about disenfranchising voters legal voters.  It is about empowering groups like ACORN, illegal immigrant/open border advocates, and other community activist groups to commit voter fraud on a scale that can turn close races into Democrat landslides.
The Holder Justice Department is nothing but an illegal arm of the Obama 2012 reelection campaign.  If you thought that Nixon had a dirty tricks team, you ain't seen nothing yet!

Eric Holder has blocked South Carolina’s voter ID law. Hans von Spakovsky and I have been predicting this was going to happen for over eight months here at PJ Media. The only surprising thing is that no halftime adjustments were made after it became even clearer an objection was on the way. Texas now faces the same dilemma. Sadly, I’m not convinced Texas understands the battlefield or the stakes involved.

Attorney General Abbot says on Twitter that “Texas will be next. We’ll fight to the end for ballot integrity.”
