I just saw this over at Pajamas Media. It has been written by J Christian Adams, the whistleblower from the Department of Justice voter division (ok so I do not have it quite right but it is close enough!!).
Basically, what is under discussion is that Georgia and now Texas have been leading the way when it comes to challenging the authority of the Department of Justice on much needed electoral reforms. However, it seems that Virginia has backed off, rather than taking a lead from Georgia.
Rather than allowing the DOJ to have control over their programs, Georgia has sued and the DOJ has backed off. It seems that there is a way to defeat the rather useless and disgraceful Eric Holder. His department seems to back off when they are sued in relation to what is really a state matter.
There is a lot that can be done to reform the voter system and to control the fraud, but it is hard to make suggestions when our systems are so different. One of the big differences is the way in which people are registered to vote. It is done by one body which has offices in each state. We actually get the form from the post office and send it to a postal address.
When we had the election last year, a group that is very similar to the Soros funded MoveOn.org and its manifestations sued to allow for people to sign on at the last minute as voters. The way it played out there were a few thousand in critical electorates and if these votes had been fully accepted they would have affected the results in some cases. However, their votes became provisional only, they were not counted until the people verified their information. I kept an eye on some electorates where there were provisional votes and one thing I noted was that most were rejected. I only remember that in one electorate that the votes were accepted. I guess you could say that the people making the provisional votes were not willing to send their corroborating information. I am assuming that it was an effort to cheat and sway the election result. However, overall, if this was the case it failed!!
I think that there needs to be a better form of voter identification. Yes, even over here it is needed. How else can you distinguish between two people who have the same name? How else can you try and stop the voter fraud?
