Eric Holder bans honest elections

Obama Attorney General Eric Holder has always been a political hack of the first order. During the Clinton years he sued banks for not making enough sub-prime mortgages, thus helping to instigate the downward spiral in lending standards that led to the current economic meltdown.

Now he's at work preventing the state of Georgia from verifying the identity of voters so the massive illegal population can vote with impunity. This is electoral corruption on a huge scale.

"Georgia's secretary of state, Karen Handel, has blasted DOJ's move:

'The decision by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to deny preclearance of Georgia’s already implemented citizenship verification process shows a shocking disregard for the integrity of our elections. With this decision, DOJ has now barred Georgia from continuing the citizenship verification program that DOJ lawyers helped to craft. DOJ’s decision also nullifies the orders of two federal courts directing Georgia to implement the procedure for the 2008 general election.

DOJ has thrown open the door for activist organizations such as ACORN to register non-citizens to vote in Georgia’s elections, and the state has no ability to verify an applicant’s citizenship status or whether the individual even exists. DOJ completely disregarded Georgia’s obvious and direct interest in preventing non-citizens from voting, instead siding with the ACLU and MALDEF. Clearly, politics took priority over common sense and good public policy.'"

No doubt the MSM will bury this story like all the other stories showing the Obama administration's disregard for the law and for honest elections. That's why people have to read blogs to understand what is going on.

The key question is what can be done about it, but the first step is to let everyone know what's happening.

Very troubling, especially in light of another Justice decision to drop an ongoing case against Black Panthers that had intimidated voters in a Philadelphia precinct. Michelle Malkin has the story that probably won't go away for Eric here:
