Supreme Court Be Damned: DOJ Serves Texas a Lawsuit Over Voter I.D. Law

Supreme Court Be Damned: DOJ Serves Texas a Lawsuit Over Voter I.D. Law
Katie Pavlich | Aug 22, 2013

The Department of Justice has served up a Texas sized lawsuit over the Lone Star State's voter identification law, something Attorney General Eric Holder has been warning about since it was signed into law in May 2011.
The Justice Department said Thursday that it will file a new lawsuit against Texas to try to block the state's voter ID law.

“Today’s action marks another step forward in the Justice Department’s continuing effort to protect the voting rights of all eligible Americans,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement accompanying the announcement of the lawsuit.

We will not allow the Supreme Court’s recent decision to be interpreted as open season for states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights."
Supreme Court be damned. The issuing of the lawsuit is bold considering theSupreme Court just struck down parts of the Voting Rights Act, resulting in states like Texas being able to make voting decisions at a local level.
The court's 5-4 ruling in the case from Alabama frees states and municipalities with a history of racial discrimination from having to clear changes in voting procedures with the federal government. That restriction has applied to nine states and parts of six others, mostly in the South.
Three weeks ago, voter integrity group True the Vote issued a statement knowing DOJ was preparing to issue a lawsuit.
 “We will not sit idly by and allow the most politically charged Department of Justice in US history to set aside the US constitution and attempt to bully the people of Texas", True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht said.  "We will meet Attorney General Holder in court and we will do whatever we need to do to advance the cause of voters’ rights for all Americans.”
 “General Holder’s announcement today demonstrates just how radical the DOJ has become. The same department that criminalizes journalism and fails to prosecute IRS agents who violate the rights of American taxpayers is promising to sue states with taxpayer dollars to block laws passed by elected legislators such as voter ID and citizenship verification.

“Every American voter deserves to have his or her vote counted - and not diluted by fraud or error. The DOJ just put itself between the voters of Texas and their guaranteed constitutional and civil rights.

“True the Vote has watched as Attorney General Eric Holder has repeatedly disregarded the rule of law,” Engelbrecht continued.  "We understand that this Department of Justice does not believe that protection of voters’ rights should be colorblind.

“Texas will stand its ground in San Antonio – that’s a promise.”
I'll leave you with Former Democratic Congressman Artur Davis, who has since switched to being a Republican, on how voter i.d. laws do not disenfranchise minority voters as Holder claims. 

Disenfranchise Minority Voters?

Thank You Ms Pavlich and Townhall.

"Making sure that they don't prosecute people, they prosecute crimes."

Oh Really?

The Newtown CT School Massacre and Senator Feinstein (D-Hypocrite) 

You remember Senator Feinstein, don't you? The Senator whose married to the Head of the University of California Board of Regents, . . . Right?

Oh, uhh, Yeah, and about that "Ethics Committee" thing?

Meet Barbara Boxer, California's Other Senator.

And the DOJ just Sued Texas over the Civil Right, "to Vote" of Disenfranchised Minorities.


It appears that the Civil Rights of the Disenfranchised are predicated upon Whose Ox/Party stands to get gored.
