‘No Proof of Voter Fraud’ But Videographer Gets Attorney General Eric Holder’s Ballot at His Polling Place — ‘Faster Than You Can Say Furious’

CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Captured on Video: Poll Workers on Primary Day in Washington, D.C. offer U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder’s ballot to a stranger, who would have been allowed to vote fraudulently, had the unidentified stranger continued the process. He’ll be back, “Faster than you can say serious.”

In response to U.S. Department of Justice Eric Holder’s assertion that there is no proof that elections are marred by in-person voter fraud, a man walked into a voting place at 3401 Nebraska Avenue, NW Washington, D.C. apparently to prove that he could vote with a ballot that was not his.

The videographer also reports that other voting locations in Washington, D.C. offer to sign for ballots. On camera, the videographer expresses his concern with a law officer about the irony that an I.D. is required to visit someone in the U.S. Department of Justice building, while the U.S. Department of Justice strikes down voter I.D. laws in state that want to prevent voter fraud.

Eric Holder has said multiple times there exists no evidence of voter fraud.

On Monday, March 12, 2012 the U.S. Department of Justice, operating under antiquated “preclearance” provisions of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, blocked a Texas Voter ID law. The U.S. Department of Justice claims that the law targets Hispanics and is aimed at suppressing minority voter turnout in the state.

Previously, in December 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice denied South Carolina’s request for pre-clearance. The U.S. Department of Justice found the states’ new voter ID law discriminatory because the state’s minority voters are 20 percent more likely than white voters to lack photo identification that meets the standard for voting. Photo ID’s are free from the Department of Motor Vehicles in South Carolina, but the supporting documents including a birth certificate, Social Security Card, and Proof of Residency can be costly to obtain.

The Voting Rights Act of 1965 prohibits states from imposing any “voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure … to deny or abridge the right of any citizen of the United States to vote on account of race or color.” Specifically, Congress intended that the Voting Rights Act eliminate the practice of requiring literacy tests in order for citizens to register to vote. Southern states were accused of using literacy tests to prevent voting rights for people that were otherwise qualified to vote. The literacy tests were considered to be a biased instrument that prevented African-Americans from voting. The Act was signed into law by Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson, who also signed the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 into law.

The claimed protection of voting rights for minorities from Holder’s office is noted to have occurred while his office is also accused of failing to prosecute minorities for civil rights violations.

VIDEO: New Black Panther Party members Minister King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson outside a University of Philadelphia polling station on Election Day in November 2008 during a discussion with student.

In May 2009, the U.S. Department of Justice ended a civil suit originally brought by the Bush administration against the New Black Panther Party, its chairman, and two of its members after voter intimidation was observed and captured on video at a voting place at the University of Pennsylvania during the 2008 election. Two members of the New Black Panther Party were shown on video standing outside a polling station during the election in dark paramilitary uniforms. One of the members was carrying a billy club or night stick. The New Black Panther members, who claimed they were “Security” were concerned about a student carrying a camera — taking pictures of them. The student exclaims, “I think you might be a little bit intimidating that you have a stick in your hand.” The New Black Panther member holding the night stick replies, “Who are you to decide?” The student replies,“But you have a night stick.” The “security force” dressed in Black Panther-like garb replied “so what” and that the student “had a camera” in his hand.

Although none of the New Black Panther member defendants appeared in court to contest the charges in 2009, the U.S. Department of Justice voluntarily dropped the charges against the party, its chairman, and one of the two members who had stood outside the polling station. Shabazz received an injunction prohibiting him from displaying a weapon within 100 feet of a Philadelphia polling place for the next three years. The U.S. Department of Justice has contended that the charges were dropped due to lack of evidence, but several current and former U.S. Department of Justice members; including J. Christian Adams, who resigned in protest, and Christopher Coates; have stated that Holder’s Department of Justice is unwilling to prosecute minorities for civil rights violations.
