“In 1982, the Republican National Committee (“RNC”) and the Democratic National Committee (“DNC”) entered into a consent decree (the “Decree” or “Consent Decree”), which is national in scope, limiting the RNC’s ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the court’s approval in advance.
The RNC appeals from a judgment of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey denying, in part, the RNC’s Motion to Vacate or Modify the Consent Decree. Although the District Court declined to vacate the Decree, it did make modifications to the Decree. The RNC argues that the District Court abused its discretion by modifying the Decree as it did and by declining to vacate the Decree. For the following reasons, we will affirm the District Court’s judgment.
“During the 1981 New Jersey gubernatorial election, the DNC, the New Jersey Democratic State Committee (“DSC”), Virginia L. Peggins, and Lynette Monroe brought an action against the RNC, the New Jersey Republican State Committee (“RSC”), John A. Kelly, Ronald Kaufman, and Alex Hurtado, alleging that the RNC and RSC targeted minority voters in an effort to intimidate them in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (“VRA”), 42 U.S.C. §§ 1971, 1973, and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. The RNC allegedly created a voter challenge list by mailing sample ballots to individuals in precincts with a high percentage of racial or ethnic minority registered voters and, then, including individuals whose postcards were returned as undeliverable on a list of voters to challenge at the polls. The RNC also allegedly enlisted the help of off-duty sheriffs and police officers to intimidate voters by standing at polling places in minority precincts during voting with “National Ballot Security Task Force” armbands. Some of the officers allegedly wore firearms in a visible manner.
“To settle the lawsuit, the RNC and RSC entered into the Consent Decree at issue here. Rest at link above.
Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to stop it:
Supreme Court declines to hear Republican voting challenge
“The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear a legal challenge by the Republican National Committee to dissolve a 1982 decree designed to stop the improper suppression of voting by particular groups.”
Particular groups meaning minorities.
Vote fraud hurts everyone regardless of skin color or ethnic background. It’s un-American, period. Vote fraud has controlled our national elections as well as state legislatures and even ballot measures for decades. The people of this country have allowed it to continue because of apathy and laziness. State legislatures have allowed it to continue because of racial politics. Now the U.S. Supreme Court has given the green light for the DNC to continue massive, systematic vote fraud across the board.
Why do you think the Democratic/Communist Party USA and the American Communist Lawyers Union (ACLU) fight so hard to defeat voter ID laws? To allow illegals and non eligible individuals into the voting booth.
Now you know why the GOP and Romney didn’t challenge the massive vote fraud. They all knew about that lawsuit, but most of us only found out shortly after the election. I wonder if big donors would like to get their millions back?
Now you know why the GOP can’t challenge vote fraud if it’s in a minority voting area. Vote fraud was everywhere again this last fake election, again. But, vote fraud aside, Romney won because Barry Soetoro aka Obama was not legally on the ballot and no one had the “right” to vote for him. The Oval Office is still empty.
How utterly and completely foolish of the RNC. They literally committed political suicide, while blacks in office now have their revenge against Caucasian Americans for something not a single living person in this country had anything to do with: slavery.
Eric Holder: Black Panther case focus demeans ‘my people’
“Attorney General Eric Holder finally got fed up Tuesday with claims that the Justice Department went easy in a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party because they are African American. Holder’s frustration over the criticism became evident during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing as Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) accused the Justice Department of failing to cooperate with a Civil Rights Commission investigation into the handling of the 2008 incident in which Black Panthers in intimidating outfits and wielding a club stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia.”
The New Black Panthers and the Justice Department
Yes, revenge. It’s just fine to allow thugs from the Black Panthers to physically intimidate non-minority voters and there’s not a thing the RNC can do about it because we have a racist Attorney General. “His people”? See how Eric Holder really thinks and he’s not alone:
Fleeced! Obama’s blanket ‘stolen’………
