A humiliating defeat for Obama and his lawless Attorney General, announced late on a Saturday night. Best time to get the bad news out there. Well, bad for them, good for everyone else.
The Obama administration has agreed to let Florida use a national law enforcement database to purge residents suspected of not being U.S. citizens from their voter rolls.
They make it appear as if through sheer magnanimity they’re going along with this common sense measure. No, they had no choice since they lost in court.
The administration had blocked Florida’s request for access to the database for months, but the decision to allow access was spurred by a court decision in another voting-rights case in favor of the state.
The decision is a victory for Republican officials in Florida and many other key swing states who say they are trying to prevent voter fraud.
Democrats though counter that efforts to purge voter rolls, combined with new states laws requiring voter identification at the polls run the risk of unfairly disenfranchising minority voters and other groups.
Which is nonsense. Now to just get all 50 states on board and Democrats will have even greater difficulty stealing elections.
