In an astonishing example of the anti-American tyranny used by Attorney General Eric Holder, the DOD, in cahoots with a court, has acted to assure that Democrats prevail in North Carolina elections and that black candidates are elected.
This extraordinary story is reported, in part, at reference 1:
The U.S. Justice Department has demanded – and a federal judge has agreed – that residents of a North Carolina city cannot make their municipal elections nonpartisan because the Obama administration representatives don’t like the possible outcomes that could result.
The result comes in a recent case involving Kinston, where voters overwhelmingly – the victory margin was about 2-1 – decided they wanted to leave the political affiliations off of candidates’ names in their city elections.
Not so fast, said Barack Obama’s Justice Department. If the affiliations are left off, a few white voters might not know who was the Democrat, and they might vote for a member of another party, the federal officials warned, and that can’t be allowed.
Kinston’s plan was simple: make the elections nonpartisan so that voters would choose a name, not a political party.
However, the U.S. attorney general ordered the election results voided because “removing the partisan cue in municipal elections will, in all likelihood, eliminate the single factor that allows black candidates to be elected to office.”
Exactly when did it become the role of the DOJ to assure that Democrats and blacks win elections?
