    (IBD) — The president’s home state gets a pass from the Justice Department on ensuring its soldiers overseas can vote. An administration obsessed with gays in the military doesn’t care about voting rights for GIs.
    You can call it a tragedy of errors, a perfect storm of incompetent and uncaring bureaucrats, or you can call it a deliberate attempt to steal what looks to be a close race for both governor and U.S. senator in President Obama’s home state by disenfranchising its servicemen overseas, votes likely to tilt Republican.
    Consider that the Illinois primary was in February and that the deadline to print and mail ballots to soldiers fighting for democracy in places like Iraq and Afghanistan was Sept. 18 — long enough, one would think, for even the slowest bureaucracy to do the job mandated under the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) act.
    A seven-month lead time apparently wasn’t enough for the incompetent administration of Gov. Pat Quinn, successor to the walking reality TV show, Rod Blagojevich, to ensure that all counties get their ducks in a row. Quinn is coincidentally locked in a tough battle with Illinois state Sen. Bill Brady where military votes could be decisive.
    The Justice Department, which has been woefully lax in enforcing MOVE and ensuring compliance among a number of states that have missed their deadlines, reached an agreement in court last Friday with 35 Illinois counties that didn’t get their ballots out on time. Six counties got an extension by two or three days to receive and count overseas ballots by Nov. 16. The other 29 counties essentially got a pass.
    Justice spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa said these counties already have 14 extra days after the election to count soldiers’ ballots. But if any votes aren’t counted in a timely manner, she said, “we can file a lawsuit.” This is not how soldiers who may get killed not knowing if their votes counted should be treated.
    The excuse given by at least one county, St. Clair, involved a court case in which the Constitution Party was fighting to get on the ballot. St. Clair County Clerk Bob Delaney didn’t mail out absentee ballots to military service members on time because if the Constitution Party had won its case, “I would have had to redo the whole thing again” — at a cost of $2 per ballot, Delaney said.
    Meanwhile, the Chicago Board of Elections hand-delivers ballots to inmates in Cook County Jail. The board doesn’t even wait for the inmates to apply — it brings the applications with the ballots! More than 2,600 inmates have cast ballots — strikingly similar to the 2,600 soldiers who will likely not receive a ballot for Tuesday’s election.

    This DoJ is loyal to the Democratic Party -- not to justice.

    Holder should be investigated and prosecuted.

    We need to start a thread about all of the irregularities that have been reported already.

    Harry Reid is getting alot of extra votes in his race because the voting machines in his state are marking the electronic ballots in his favor before a vote is cast. You'd have to double-check your ballot before submitting it to keep this from happening.

    Guess who's responsible for checking the accuracy of these machines.....


    The SEIU? Obama's union Butt-boys.

    Voting Machines Automatically Checking Harry Reid's name; Machine Technicians are SEIU Members
    NEVADA... VOTING MACHINES AUTOMATICALLY CHECK HARRY REID'S NAME..... MACHINE TECHNICIANS ARE SEIU MEMBERS. - Patriotic Resistance

    Voting laws are the state's baliwick.

    What does Obama have to do with it?

    I thought you were a big advocate of states rights.

    The marketer of accident lawyers and doomsday dry food, Sean Hannity, parroted this yesterday on his show.
    You can't blame these folks for pasting and copying Sean. They can't think for themselves.
