    Eric Holder visits council of African American church leaders to get the vote out

    1. Attorney General Eric Holder told a council of African American church leaders Wednesday that the "sacred" right to vote is under assault nationwide, with federal lawsuits and at least a dozen state laws that could weaken — or block — minority access to the ballot box this fall.

    2. Without mentioning party affiliation, Holder praised the -- until recently exclusively Democratic -- Congressional Black Caucus as the "conscience of Congress" over the last four decades

    He also told the pastors that they are "stewards of democracy," in keeping with Cleaver's call for pastors to help drive voter turnout. "You have a thoughtful voice to add to discussions about voting access -- what the struggle for freedom has long been about ensuring: the opportunity for citizens to voice their opinions, and -- through the casting of their ballots -- to signal their priorities and shape their futures," Holder concluded.

    3. "I've heard a consistent drumbeat of concern from citizens, who -- often for the first time in their lives -- now have reason to believe that . . . some of the achievements that defined the civil rights movement could now hang in the balance," Holder said in his prepared remarks. He cited "the all-too-common deceptive practices we’ve been fighting for years" in addition to "more recent fears and frustrations about some of the state-level voting law changes we’ve seen this legislative season."

    The role of Attorney General is supposed to be apolitical. But he brought the Treasury Dept. in tow to skirt the issue of tax problems for the church when he began his real agenda…Get the Obama Vote Out.

    This administration and especially Holder with his talking points from Obama is nothing but a racist who cares for “his people” above his country.

    This administration will stop at nothing. Voter Id for voting has othing about blocking minorities from voting but has much to do about blocking fraud!

    -----------What utter and complete hypocrasy! Holder refused to prosecute the New Black Panther party when they intimidated whites from voting in Phillidelphia in 2008, and now he claims that minorities will be kept from voting?! This from the Guy who still doesn't know who authorised Fast and Furious and who is looking at a contempt charge from Congress, why is he still in office?

    Good question. We can't trust the guy. He's nothing more than a henchman and could care less about justice.

    I think Eric Holder is a major reason we need to vote Obama out.

    Because there's a long tradition of electioneering from the pulpit in black churches.
