8. I wouldn't put any faith in the DoJ to handle these cases
Edited on Thu Jul-28-11 02:08 AM by 0rganism
Even if we had some certainty that the DoJ would take corrective actions against a clear civil rights infringement, when such cases arise it's likely to be after an election event where voter ID laws were used to suppress the vote.

We can't afford to wait for the GOPers to steal another election. It's too late then. As much as I distrust Holder's organization to handle such matters expeditiously, a republican-led DoJ wouldn't even consider touching them at all.

For now, we have to play by their rules and beat them at their own game. We can do that by ensuring people can obtain the mandatory legal IDs and vote in spite of the GOP's anti-turnout tactics.
