Geee Posted February 8, 2012 Share Posted February 8, 2012 American Thinker: A basic and elementary right of every American is to be able to vote without being intimidated and to make sure that he or she is not disenfranchised. The Department of Justice has exclusively chosen laws it wants to uphold, yet it looks the other way on laws that need to be enforced. Because Eric Holder's Justice Department refuses to protect the integrity of the election process, the states must step in and fulfill that responsibility. American Thinker interviewed experts to get their opinion on how to make sure voters are not disenfranchised. Throughout the U.S., there have been numerous incidents of voter fraud. In Troy, New York, a local 2009 election was "thrown" when numerous signatures were forged on absentee ballots. This past January, Project Veritas reporters voted in New Hampshire by giving the names of deceased registered voters. Voter registration fraud is becoming a common practice. ACORN employees were convicted of trying to register dead people and of making up voters. Catherine Engelbrecht, who heads the organization True The Vote, which monitors and attempts to stop corruption in the election process, noted that in Milwaukee, 126% of the eligible population is registered to vote; Florida has 29,000 dead people on their voter roles, and in Texas, approximately 1,400 people are registered at the same P.O. Box. Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, told American Thinker that in Colorado, approximately 11,000 legal aliens registered to vote, with about 5,000 casting ballots in the 2010 elections, and that former Missouri Senator Kit Bond ®, to prove a point, was able to register his dog as a voter. Congressman Brian Bilbray (R-CA) is frustrated over the issue of voter registration since "in many states there are registration people that are being paid for every person that they register to vote. There is a financial incentive to have non-citizens register to vote. In California it's totally on the honor system. Once someone is registered, no one checks. Someone illegally voting could cancel out your vote. In Holder's Justice Department, the integrity of the electoral process doesn't matter."
