The U.S. Department of Justice sued New York State and New York State Board of Elections on Tuesday after several counties missed deadlines intended to ensure military voters receive ballots in time for their votes to be counted in the November elections.

The complaint filed Tuesday evening charges the state and its board of elections with "failure to ensure that election officials in Niagara, Putnam, Westchester, Erie,Richmond, Bronx, New York, Kings, and Queens Counties transmitted absentee ballots by October 1," which was the second deadline missed by the counties, after the state had been given a waiver for missing its earlier deadline.

The legal action marks the most aggressive federal intervention yet amid an ongoing debate over how to enforce compliance with the 2009 Military and Overseas Voters Empowerment Act, known as the MOVE Act, which is intended to ensure that overseas ballots are sent, received and counted on time.

“Our laws guarantee that uniformed service members and other overseas citizens will have a meaningful opportunity to participate in the elections of our nation’s leaders,” said Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division. “This suit seeks both immediate and permanent relief to ensure that New York’s military and overseas voters, many of whom are members of our armed forces and their families serving our country around the world, can exercise their right to vote and have their votes counted in the upcoming federal elections.”

The Obama administration was caught off guard. When it came to stealing an election, somebody tried to beat them to it.

"...said Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division"

 

I can't remember, was Perez a good or bad guy in the investigation about bias in the department?

Any bets on how fast this lawsuit fades away after the mid-terms? This is nothing but another attempt to deflect attention away from the disaster of Obambi and the RATS in his first 21 months in office.
