    So it's not sick that these offices were never setup ever before, but it IS sick that the offices that President Obama ordered to be setup aren't yet. Riiigghhttt....

    The article has a typo. It says:

    The Pentagon report says it costs $15-20 million per year.

    It also says the MOVE Act did not provide this funding.



    So you can blame...anyone? Anyone?

    That's right! Congress!

    Which was a Democratic Congress in 2009.

    But Mr. Eversole said Congress had appropriated $75 million over the past three years for military voter assistance efforts.

    Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    However, implementation of the act has been spotty, with only 15 states having fully implemented it. In California, only 15 of its 58 counties failed to comply with the law, resulting in military absentee ballots not being counted as they were received too late. Yet, 90 percent of absentee ballots sent to American civilians living abroad are returned and counted, compared to 2/3rds of absentee ballots mailed by overseas military personnel.[2]​
    Just coincidence, I'm sure.

    Right, USMB lefties?

    I thought Michelle Obama's pet project was her deep devotion to our
    Men and women in the armed service.

    Maybe Michelle's concern is only there when the cameras are turned on.

    Well I don't think that the Democrat party will be too interested in this.
    They have bigger things on their mind.
    Like making sure that Sandra Fluke has plenty of free birth control.
