I had already predicted that Holder would find higher priorities than going after the Oklahoma killers of a white guy for civil rights violations. The Obama administration never disappoints those of us who have become 100% cynical about it.

holderofthebag should have been disbarred for pardoning marc rich, the largest tax evader in American history, and an arch-criminal along the lines of soros and madoff.

Well, gee, how else could people (like the woman in NC) vote multiple times if they had to properly identify themselves?

Never mind. I don't want to know.

They let this go and the next thing you know you'll have to show ID to get on an airplane or buy tobacco. No wonder this is Obama's top enforcement priority.

I find it interesting the Holder is fine with tracking everyone's phone calls, credit cards, internet usage and e-mail, but he thinks it is an invasion of privacy to show an ID to vote.

We really should be voting by text messaging or on Facebook. That way the NSA could keep track of everything.

Let's not rush to judgment, maybe ole Black Panther Holder is on to something here.

1} It's racist to ask for a drivers license if pulled over, after all a drivers license is ID.

2} It's racist to ask for ID to buy alcohol.

3} It's racist to ask for ID when purchasing a gun.

4} It's racist to ask for ID to cash a check.

5} It's racist to ask for ID to purchase cigarettes.

6} It's racist to ask for ID to obtain welfare and food stamp benefits.

7} It's racist to ask for ID when doing taxes.

8} It's racist to ask for a student ID while on campus.

9} It's racist to ask for ID whn purchasing a airline ticket.

10} We could go on but we know how it ends.

Now liberals and Democrats would say you must have ID for all those things it has to be that way, BUT when it comes to voting, they just can't have 50% or more of their electorate getting purged from the voter rolls, after all they need convicted felons, illegal aliens, dead people and multiple voters voting, so it must be absolutely no ID required, otherwise that's RACIST!

Other than #3 on your list, none of these are specifically mentioned as guaranteed rights for law abiding citizens under the Constitution. The right to vote is guaranteed via the 15th amendment and the Voting Rights Act, so it doesn't hinge on arbitrarily applied state ID requirements for voting (i.e. the stupid double standard of the North Carolina laws that accepts concealed carry permits, but not Student IDs), or those for most activities on your list where IDs are (sometimes) required (I don't remember seeing many 60+ year olds being asked for IDs to purchase cigarettes or alcohol). Even GOP politicians in their (rare) moments of honesty like Mike Turzai admitted that these laws are motivated by the desire to suppress votes.

So, if it is a constitutionally guaranteed right, no ID is required to vote or to purchase a firearm. Interesting.

She boasted that she voted twice in last November's presidential election.

She was charged with repeatedly voting illegally over three elections using the names of others, including her sister who has been in a coma for a decade.

Now 58-year-old Melowese Richardson, a veteran Cincinnati poll worker, will be spending the next five years in prison for voter fraud.

Thank the Lord, we get rid of Holder along with Obama in 2016. First time a President sues one of the U.States for an illegal alien. Those two have chips on their shoulders a mile high. Need to be in prison.

Unbelivable that you think that the voting rights of the people of Texas are LESS important than race-baiting the Oklahoma case and pretending it involves "civil rights violations."

Well, not that unbelievable if you're a right winger, I guess...
