In November 2009 Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes brazenly announced to the DOJ Voting Section that federal regulations, which called for the removal of dead and ineligible voters from the voter rolls, would no longer be enforced. According to J. Christian Adams, she told the gathered attorneys “we have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.”
Adams wrote in a piece for PJ Media that “jaws dropped around the room … It is one thing to silently adopt a lawless policy of refusing to enforce a provision of federal law designed to bring integrity to elections. It is quite another to announce the lawlessness to a room full of people who have sworn an oath to fairly enforce the law.”
Allowing ineligible voters to remain on voter lists plays an essential role in Democrat voter fraud. An excess of voter ballots, alive or not, provides an opportunity for unscrupulous precinct captains to stuff the ballot boxes at the end of an election day, which explains why dead voters always seem to show up at the polls in Chicago and elsewhere. An analysis by Texas Watchdog confirmed this practice when they discovered dozens of deceased in Harris County Texas had “apparently cast ballots from beyond the grave” since 2004.
