Holder: Many Republicans are using Voter ID laws for partisan advantage

Attorny General Eric Holder today said that he believes Republicans are using voter ID for purely partisan advantage and not for voter integrity, as most of them claim:



If we can show that Photo ID efforts are done inappropriately and for improper reasons, I think that ought to be the basis for federal intervention.

There are some [Republicans] I think who are coming from a good faith perspective, but I think many are using it for partisan advantage.

Here we have a card carrying racist, Holder, (as noted in the book “INJUSTICE” by J. Christian Adams), who represents a Marxist administration trying to tell us that Republicans are using Voter I.D.s for partisan advantage!!!??? Purely incredulous. This defies all known logic or common sense. No evidence. No anecdotal support. Just say it and it’s so. Yet there they BOTH sit, in defiance of a contempt order from congress (Holder) and in contempt of not 1 but 2 Federal Courts (Obama), shooting down one of the oldest tenets known to man to assure accuracy in elections: Identification. How did it ever get to this point. It’s beyond me.

Yeah, those ol’ pesky Republicans want to ensure that citizens are voting and not someone that just snuck into the country. Those awful Republicans don’t care for voter fraud. People like Holder and his boss don’t object to voter fraud because it always goes to the Dimocrap Party.

Hiolder….who cares…this Creep belongs in a Nutjob Movie….oh yeah showing ID is for partisan advantage. I wonder Half brain how many people in the DOJ were required to show ID to get a job? Just curious Half Brain? Yes Half Brain you need an ID to see an R rated movie…I guess that is Patisan as well…I would ask if this Half Brain even listens to what he says…but he is so gone and left who cares….he is nothing more than a mouthpiece that is utterly partisan and has no interest in the US Constitution.

Just the header of the article had me ROTFLMAO. I’ll repeat a comment I’ve made before. If you put a pair of wire rimmed glasses on Holder, doesn’t he remind you of a certain German chicken farmer in the ’30s?

I tried to watch the 9 + minutes of the Schmucky Chucky video about his rant on the TEA Party, and I thought the coffee would curdle in my stomach; too early I guess. So I came to this story and almost lost my mind. Mr. Holder has not once presented any evidence that any state is passing legislation aimed at keeping anyone from obtaining valid I.D. for the purpose of voting. I’m sure someone has posted this point already and I do apologize for piggy backing on any ones post. I can only claim illness from the Schmucky Chucky video, the Hillary Franken…I mean Clinton story and of course Eric “I’m a POS” Holder story, time for my Pepto Bismo morning energy drink.

Nelson Mandela, the leader of South Africa posed with a bright Yellow T-Shirt on that said get Registered and have your ID to vote. This is a Requirement in an entire country. South Africa. Now if it is good enough for the likes of South Africa…..Why in GOD’S name is it not good enough for the United States? Shut up Eric.

Holder is a dangerous man…he is racist and shows blatant partiality, with no reservation, or denial! You need ID for everything else in this country! Try opening a checking account, purchase alcohol, make returns, get a credit card, make purchases, sell gold or silver, pay by check, and the list is endless without it. Yet, the most vital right our Constitution provides us is the right to vote! But it has been corrupted! People like Holder hate the Voter ID law because it interferes with their agenda…FRAUD!

Will someone please explain to me how installing photo ID across a state is inappropriate? What does Holder mean? Is he insinuating that the right are denying people photo ID’s? Is he implying that the right is making those pay a hefty sum? I mean…what is he saying? States are providing transportation for those who want FREE PHOTO ID’s. How is any of that inappropriate? From what I understand….few people have had to get photo ID’s……they already had them. Try surviving in this country without ID….it is dam near impossible. I think Holder just likes hearing himself talk. Watch him next time and you’ll see what I mean.

With what Holder wants (Democrat voters voting multiple times, illegals voting, dead people voting) plus Soros-built voting machines, our elections will be about as valid as those in the Congo, Rwanda and Zimbabwe.

Holder is a criminal. Ironic, considering he is also the nations chief law enforcement officer.

Eric, where are you on the fascist, ILLEGAL, and unconstitutional use of the IRS, NSA, EPA, OSHA, and the DHS to intimidate, harass, and persecute political dissidents?

Oh the simple questions are just Oh so simple… are they not? Questions like:

Why would you NOT want voters to identify themselves at the polls?

What political party would benefit from voters NOT identifying themselves at the polls?

What possible motive could a political party have for NOT wanting to enforce or enact voter ID laws?

Simple really!

This is a warning to the repubs (and us too) that if they demand voter ID, they will be jailed for an attempted coup. This is how it will work: if there is a big voter ID push, about 99.999% of the vote fraud cases will be democrats. Now you know (sarc on) that can’t be. The Founders told us that all men are equal, so an equal number of repubs should be guilty. So those protesting voter fraud are obviously racists attempting a coup by vote fraud. See! We told you so! Those repubs are all raaaaacists! Let’s jail them all! (sarc off) Remember just a day or two ago when the Department of Hitler’s Justice announced it was investigating not just Christie’s mishandling of funds, but the entire NJ repub party?

If people are so stupid that they can’t get a photo ID, then maybe they shouldn’t be allowed to vote anyway.
If they can’t read, can’t even read their own home-country language, let alone English, is this a person that will even understand what the issues are, or the meaning of the Declaration or the Constitution, or how our government even works?

Voting rights means we want people to have an ID before they vote.

How have Democrats cheated in elections?
* dead people voting (through live surrogates who are cheating)
* multiple voting (by Democrats, using more than one alias or ID)
* illegals voting in places where no ID is required

Projecting again Eric? You rotten, piece of filth. He should be in jail… MANY times over. But the needy media scoops up his poop and serves it to the general public like it’s mana or wisdom or something… this is nothing but lies and B.S. – AND WE ALL KNOW IT.

The problem with Facebook is that there is no DISLIKE button.
That would be cool – i DISLIKE Holder.
And there is no ENEMY button. I need these in order to deal with Schumer, and Joan Walsh, and Brian Beutler, and Thom Hartmann. One could go on and on.
Oh – i forgot – i need these buttons to deal with Zuckerberg too because of his phoney outfit pushing AMNESTY. If he does not like my little idea, oh well, that’s his problem. This AMNESTY thing is a serious existential threat. Thank God for Breitbart tracking it. I wish more sites did that.
and what is going on with some newspaper chain building a database of gun owners ? A lot of retired cops would find that rather alarming.

The goal, is to end voter fraud. It is not that complicated, it is not partisan, it’s important, and it’s the RIGHT THING TO DO.

Mr. Holder, why are you claiming ‘partisan-ism’? Does your party have to cheat to win? I’m not putting words in your mouth, just asking the question. I fail to see what’s partisan about solving this issue.

“The Obama administration is criminalizing dissent through the selective enforcement of the law! In 2011, a prominent Los Angeles attorney, Pierce O’Donnell, pleaded guilty to a MISDEMEANOR charge of submitting $20,000 in donations to the John Edwards presidential campaign on behalf of a number of donors. Why wasn’t HE indicted? Because he wasn’t a Conservative! Eric Holder is only interested in targeting Conservatives.”

BUT conservative DINESH D’SOUZA WAS -same charge, same $$. Selective justice, reds!

Biggest laugh in the world. It was Democrats who changed the voter laws and made them literally ludicrous. Early voting a month in advance in North Carolina, for example. This is the hidden secret as to why Obama received such huge turnouts from black voters. If you can vote in early October, it changes the whole meaning of “vote early and often.”

Republicans are just trying to restore some sanity to the laws.

But that’ the Democrat way. Expand some ridiculous law or provide some freebie, and the minute the GOP tries to rein it back the Dems scream as loudly as they can that the GOP is taking away someone’s right — to free contraception, to free healthcare, to voting access.
