We’ve already been told that today’s vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress was motivated by race. Some liberals, though, see the move as part of an ongoing GOP effort to disenfranchise voters this November.
This is, of course, a reference to the state of Florida’s effort (in compliance with federal law) to double check its voter rolls and remove duplicates, deceased individuals, and other ineligible voters. Unfortunately for the left, dead and duplicate voters are a key Democrat constituency that will be essential to victory in the coming election. As a result of this, the effort to remove ineligible names from the rolls is being (laughably) labeled “voter suppression,” and Holder’s Department of Justice is suing Florida to halt the purge.
But wait. There’s more:
Clearly, the GOP is aiming at full-bore “voter suppression,” and it has been caught by these too-smart-to-fool defenders of the attorney general and the Obama administration.
