Obama DOJ Not To Enforce Law Requiring Cleaning Voting Lists

The Obama administration has directed Department of Justice staffers not to enforce the law requiring  lists of dead or inactive voters be expunged, according to J. Christian Adams, the  DOJ official whose May 14 resignation stems from the administration’s squelching of voter intimidation charges against members of the New Black Panther Party for an incident that occurred on Election Day 2008 in Philadelphia.

The requirement is mandated by the 1993 Motor Voter Act.

Adams says the order was given last November at a meeting of the DOJ’s Voting Section convened by Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes, a political appointee.

Adams quoted her as saying “We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.”

Adams says the jaws of Voting Staff collectively dropped.

Adams says he expects the matter to be corroborated by the many honest staff members in attendance, and notes that since the announcement the DOJ has not filed a single case regarding the Motor Voter provision.

Even more damming, Attorney General Eric Holder has dismissed a case started by the Bush Administration regarding voter roll expunging in Missouri. Adams says that in many places in Missouri there are more voters than humans with heartbeats.

  1. This has my blood boiling!!! What could possibly be a logical reason for not enforcing this law??????

  2. That’s the way they do it in Chicago. Obama’s thinking must be, “What’s good for Chicago is good for the country.
