With critical midterm elections less than four weeks away, the failure to scrutinize voter registrations and clean up voter rolls leaves our system vulnerable to voter fraud, and a Justice Department whistleblower says the Obama administration is actively trying to stop states from bringing records up to date and ensure only eligible voters are casting ballots.
J. Christian Adams further asserts that voter fraud does occur and is indirectly responsible for the passage of Obamacare.
Adams is author of “Crimes Against the Republic: How the Democratic Party’s Voter Fraud is Fundamentally Transforming America.” He left the Justice Department early in the Obama administration and has regularly spoken out about what he considers to be partisan actions by Attorney General Eric Holder on voting and other civil rights issues.
Two flash points he frequently mentions are the DOJ’s decision not to prosecute the New Black Panther Party on voter intimidation charges in 2008 and the battle between Holder and several states over requiring photo identification to be presented before being allowed to vote.
However, Adams said there’s a much bigger problem than either of those matters.
“We have millions of people on the voter rolls who are not eligible to vote, millions of people who are not actually valid registrations,” Adams said. “Absolutely nothing is being done about that from the government’s perspective. Only private organizations have done anything about it. Eric Holder, of course, is the attorney general who could do something about it but does not.”
According to Adams, there are all sorts of people influencing our elections who have no business casting a ballot.
“There are dead people. There are foreigners. There are non-citizens. There are people who are duplicate registrations. They registered in more than one state. Sometimes they even vote in more than one state,” said Adams, noting the case of Wendy Rosen, who ran for Congress in Maryland and voted in her own primary there and in Florida.
So why aren’t the rolls cleaned up? Adams said in many jurisdictions, there’s literally no scrutiny of voter registration forms.
“They just get put on the rolls,” he said. “They aren’t verified. When states like Florida tried to do the citizenship verification, or states like Georgia, all these groups, including Eric Holder sprung up to sue them to try to stop them from checking to see if they were really citizens. So the states that do try to check for verification frequently find themselves on the bad end of a lawsuit.”
Adams added, “This is something the Justice Department seems perfectly comfortable with. The status quo is something the department is totally comfortable with. Why that is is not something I have an answer to.”
