DOJ blocks Georgia from checking citizenship of voters; GA has evidence of non-citizen voting

From this press release from Karen Handel, Secretary of State of Georgia:

"The decision by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to deny preclearance of Georgia’s already implemented citizenship verification process shows a shocking disregard for the integrity of our elections. With this decision, DOJ has now barred Georgia from continuing the citizenship verification program that DOJ lawyers helped to craft. DOJ’s decision also nullifies the orders of two federal courts directing Georgia to implement the procedure for the 2008 general election. The decision comes seven months after Georgia requested an expedited review of the preclearance submission.

"DOJ has thrown open the door for activist organizations such as ACORN to register non-citizens to vote in Georgia’s elections, and the state has no ability to verify an applicant’s citizenship status or whether the individual even exists. DOJ completely disregarded Georgia’s obvious and direct interest in preventing non-citizens from voting, instead siding with the ACLU and MALDEF. Clearly, politics took priority over common sense and good public policy.

"This process is critical to protecting the integrity of our elections. We have evidence that non-citizens have voted in past Georgia elections and that more than 2,100 individuals have attempted to register, yet still have questions regarding their citizenship. Further, the Inspector General’s office is investigating more than 30 cases of non-citizens casting ballots in Georgia elections, including the case of a Henry County non-citizen who registered to vote and cast ballots in 2004 and 2006.


Until we all make it mandatory to have US citizenship and identification when voting then elections ain't worth a damn.

Since when does the DOJ have authority over state elections? This sounds more like Georgia is a spineless bitch looking to bend over for federal Socialists bent on criminal invasion.

Mexico has strict identification requirements at the polls, yet we are not as good as that third world corrupt cesspool.

next move why have voting? after all most monkey nations don't need no stinking votes.

But it's okay to have Black Panthers with weapons at polling booths intimidating voters........ FIRE ERIC HOLDER...AND OBAMA the Magnificent!

Attorneys General in two states were recently told by DOJ that it would be "unwise" to enact proposed strong pro gun legislation. Their response? You might be surprised to hear that those Attorneys General were not going to be ruled by Washington. They didn't come right out and say that they didn't care what DOJ thought but what they did say was......"We're doing it anyway! Looks like Georgia needs to "grow a pair".
