The 'Disgusting and Shameful' Obama/Holder Justice Department

Topics: Political News and commentaries

If you've been wondering why Texas, South Carolina, and other states that have passed common-sense voter-ID laws run into such dogged opposition from the Obama/Holder Justice Department, here's a clue:

One huge factor is the radical ideology and bias of the staff who work in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division, as revealed in a new report from Christian Adams, a former Voting Section lawyer.

Adams highlights the Facebook page of one Stephanie Celandine Gyamfi, a supervisory DoJ civil-rights analyst responsible for reviewing voter-ID law submissions under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. Here, one finds a post in which Ms. Byamfi expresses her utter contempt for Mississippi voters for approving a voter-ID referendum last November:

Disgusting and shameful. Hey, that should replace the state motto: "Mississippi: Disgusting and Shameful" . . . forget the Magnolia State motto.
Sources say this same employee has 1) admitted to committing perjury in an open Inspector General investigation and 2) leaked confidential legal opinions and documents during the Bush administration.

Such outrageous behavior could easily get a lawyer disbarred. At a bare minimum, Ms. Gyamfi should be disqualified from working on any Section 5 submissions, given her evident bias and misbehavior. Yet, instead of being disciplined or terminated, she has been treated as a hero by her fellow employees.

As long as the Justice Department turns a blind eye to unethical and biased behavior within its ranks, citizens can have no expectation of just treatment. Any state that submits its voter-ID law for administrative review by the Voting Section -- instead of going straight to federal court in Washington -- is making a very foolish mistake.

As I noted just a few days ago, the real motivation for being against voter I.D. can only be to rig elections. As for the argument that voter ID discriminates against minorities - that itself discriminatory - it's downright racist. It's saying that black Americans and Hispanics are too dumb and incompetent to handle getting ID like everyone else in America.

After all:

  • You need ID to get welfare.

  • You need ID to get unemployment.
  • You need ID to get food stamps.
  • You need ID to qualify for government assisted housing.
  • You need ID for Medicare
  • You need ID for Social Security
  • You need ID to cash a check (including a welfare check)
And the very reason that all of these programs designed to help those same poor potential voters require that you have a government issued ID in order to use them ... is, of course ... to eliminate fraud. So, rigging an election is the one and only logical reason for being against voter ID. And Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and the whole Democratic Party. And it is this that is, indeed, "disgusting and shameful."
