Judge Sides with Florida on Illegal Voter Purge

Yankee Traveler 2012/06/27 21:17:43

Obama’s Department of Justice and Homeland Security are trying desperately to prevent Florida from ensuring those who vote can do so legally. And the DOJ is losing, and Florida winning its fight to protect itself.

A federal judge has refused to stop Florida from removing potentially non-U.S. citizens from its rolls.

The U.S. Department of Justice sued the state to halt the purge, arguing it was going on too close to a federal election.

U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle said Wednesday that there was nothing in federal voting laws that prevent the state from identifying non-U.S. citizens even if it comes less than 90 days before the Aug. 14 election.

This is quite a smack-down for Obama. And it comes less than a day before the Supreme Court decision on his key piece of legislation, government mandated health care.

Anyone else noticing the following trend in Obama’s government?

If it’s illegal, protect it. If it’s legal, attack it.

    For once a common sense judge willing to do the right thing and not only protect FL but to also protect our USA, unlike Obama and his DOJ cronies

    Just a bunch of thugs doing the exact opposite to maintaining the rule of law.

    Obviously the purge is only illegal to the Progressive Liberals that are afraid the dead will not vote for them now.

    So far Florida has found 86 non citizen registered to vote which have voted in the past. When they finally get the accurate non citizen registration from the fed that number will drastically increase.

    We finally have a federal judge who got something right. I guess WithHolders threats to him meant nothing with the contempt vote coming.
  • exhon2009 2012/06/28 02:41:16
    Eric Holder looks like he's pondering the question of how many New Black Panther Party thugs will he need to deploy to the polls to offset the impact of states like Florida ridding the rolls of illegitimate voters.

    Do you believe this DOJ we have?! There is NO JUSTICE in breaking the law by allowing illegals to vote in OUR elections. Finally, a judge who is NOT in the pocket of the Obama Regime!

    Judge Hinkle rocks! Space Invader probably has it right, that fed funds will now be denied to Florida.

    Every state they have opposed on anything needs to step up now and tell them to go to hell. If they keep trying one at a time they're going to be easier prey.

    I couldn't agree with you more. There is strength in numbers and we the people and the states must stand together while we are under assault.

    Then Florida should begin the act of secession. No money, no Union. Enough of this $hit from the Marxist Feds.

    I bet there are many more states that need to do the same thing as Florida and get rid of all the noncitizens that are on their voting rolls. This is a good ruling for the citizens of Florida and for America as a whole.

    Well I think that most of us are sick and tired of the "Progressive" Liberal horsesh*t going on in America today. Our country isnt theirs to turn into some crackpot idea of a free for all mish mash of "diversity" while attacking everything that made America great.

  • redhorse29 2012/06/28 00:22:04
    Yes. Lets hope the snowball gets rolling and turns into a steam-roller that drives this administration out of Washington.
