Welcome to the year 2012 where the Obama Justice Department, headed by Attorney General Eric Holder, refuses to admit voter fraud is a real threat to our democratic process while they sue state after state for voter i.d. laws.
"There is no proof that our elections are marred by in person voter fraud," Attorney General Eric Holder. "Solutions that have been proposed go to things that do not exist, go to a problem that does not exist."
First, we take you to North Carolina where Project Veritas has exposed how non-citizen voters are capable of obtaining a ballot and voting in the swing state.
In North Carolina we find people who are listed as non-citizens according to Jury refusal forms and who are also registered to vote. We get their comment and are offered their ballots. We are offered a ballot in the name of a dead man, and interview an election Judge who says he only wants to uphold parts of the state constitution. We also interview the following officials at UNC who seemingly embrace voter fraud:
-Terri Phoenix -- Director - UNC LGBTQ Center
-Dean Blackburn UNC Assistant Dean of Students
-Adam Limehouse - Director for the Coalition to Protect All NC Families.
Next, we take you to Florida, a key state in any presidential election, where at least 180,000 non-citizens may be sitting on the voter rolls eligible to vote.
Florida election authorities are examining about 180,000 people who they say may not be U.S. citizens but are registered to vote in the state, an official said on Friday.
State officials are updating Florida's voter rolls ahead of the U.S. presidential election in November. Florida is home to a large Latino population and is expected to be a critical swing state in the contest between Democratic President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
Officials in Florida have so far identified more than 2,600 potential voters who may not be U.S. citizens and sent their information to local election authorities, Cate said.
And are the feds helping to solve this problem? Of course not, despite federal law requiring the clean up of rolls. President Obama has an election to win and Janet Napolitano to help him do it.
Cate said some Florida officials have asked the Obama administration to grant the state access to databases maintained by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help determine who is a citizen.
"We've been requesting access, but have so far been denied," he said.
So, at this point we've seen dead people voting in New Hampshire and Vermont, a stranger obtaining Eric Holder's ballot and contaminated voter rolls in North Carolina and Florida. Keep in mind, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Florida are all swing states and 180,000 is a lot of potentially illegal votes. On top of that, it is estimated that at least two million dead people in America are still registered to vote.
Solution to this problem? Standing and acting to prevent voter fraud with True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht. Securing the integrity of our vote isn't a partisan issue.
What's the dirty little secret of the 2012 election? Despite a disturbing resistance by our federal government to acknowledge the problem, election fraud is all over the map.
Our republic flourishes when citizens are confident their vote is secure, fair and free. Conversely, election fraud undermines our belief that our elected leaders govern with our consent. Every American - regardless of race, creed or political inclination - has an interest in ensuring our elections are both free and fair.
Such is the conviction that led to the birth of a modern-day election integrity movement, of which our nonprofit and nonpartisan group, True the Vote, is a leading voice.
