I’m really, REALLY angry about this story.
I’ve been expecting things to “go this far”…this is not at all surprising. However, it’s corrupt beyond belief. The Obama Department of Justice is coordinating with ACORN (front group) on elections? REALLY? Yes, the Dept. of Justice is working with ACORN to thwart efforts to reform voter fraud in the elections.
Judicial Watch has done it again. It has produced–following a Freedom of Information Act request filed with the United States Department of Justice (DOJ)–documents that suggest extensive coordination and communications between the DOJ Voting Section and former ACORN affiliate Project Vote.
Project Vote appears to be directing DOJ resources toward particular states; is having meetings with DOJ staff; and is even recommending lawyers to work in the Justice Department Voting Section that will oversee the 2012 presidential election.
Project Vote also appears to have played a role in the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s administration, which aims to force the state to increase voter registration in welfare agencies and drug treatment offices.
The documents also appear to show that Project Vote receives special access to, and meetings with, DOJ officials. So do other voter fraud-deniers, such as the NAACP Legal Defense Fund; Tova Wang at Demos; and the Brennan Center for Justice. I write about numerous similar instances in my book, Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department.
These activist groups have enjoyed access to the top political appointees at DOJ over voting–including Aaron McCree Lewis, in the Office of the Attorney General; Sam Hirsch, Deputy Associate Attorney General; and Deputy Assistant Attorney General in charge of voting issues, Matthew Colangelo.
Emails obtained by Judicial Watch also suggest that Project Vote was directing complaints to the persons at DOJ responsible for deploying election monitoring resources, urging them to devote resources to races around the country–particularly where Tea Party groups were active in efforts to combat voter fraud.
So a group that was found to be worthy of legal action to stop its taxpayer funding is getting special access to the Dept. of Justice and is coordinating against tea party efforts to stop election fraud.
YOUR Dept. of Justice. YOU are funding this.
Did I tell you I was angry?
ALL TEA PARTY FOLKS need to get engaged, and soon. Before it’s too late to matter.
