This week the State of Florida Communications Director released to ‘interested media’ including this writer a series of communications between the Florida Department of State (DOS) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regarding Florida’s legal access to DHS's Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database. These requests have persisted since September, 2011 without meaningful response from DHS and despite letters written by Congressmen Jeff Miller, Gus Bilirakis, and Tom Rooney to Janet Napolitano (Secretary of Homeland Security), the Director of U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services (CIS), and AG Eric Holder of the DOIJ respectively. Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner has also cited the rule of law as well as the implications of the Obama Administration in not permitting states to purge voter rolls. The August 26, 2011 publication by DHS contains this statement: “provides for customer agencies (states) to use SAVE for any legal purpose such as background investigations and voter registration.” Currently the Obama Administration has denied at least four states---Colorado, Florida, Michigan and North Carolina---access to the SAVE database, thus preventing them from purging voter rolls of illegally registered non-citizens, a blatant violation of the rule of law by the Obama Administration with the objective of rigging the November elections. Not only that, but DOIJ has filed suit vs. FL. for efforts to purge voter rolls! This is a continuation of the lawless tyranny of the Obama Administration. The State of Florida with support from many groups will countersue the Federal government for infringing on the rule of law.
Using court documents and information from the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, the State of Florida has at least 182,000 possible illegally registered voters. Unless a problem of this magnitude is reconciled before the elections, it has the potential to cause a fraudulent outcome in a close election. Every illegal vote nullifies a legal vote. As Secretary of State Ken Detzner so aptly wrote to the Department of Justice in his letter of June 6: “the practice DOJ now appears to be endorsing is as follows: the federal Department of Homeland Security may, for months, violate federal law and deny Florida and other states access to the SAVE database so that the federal Department of Justice may then assert that the resulting delays in a state’s election-integrity efforts violate the time periods established in another federal law. This hardly seems like an approach earnestly designed to protect the intergrity of elections and to ensure that eligible voters have their votes counted.”
County elections officials are required by state and federal law to protect the integrity of the vote and thus remove ineligible voters from voter rolls which include illegals, dead people, felons and those who are registered in another state. There have been anecdotal but inaccurate media reports that one or more legal voters have been denied their right to vote in Florida as the result of the state’s review. That is patently false and merely a fabrication by the biased liberal media. No one has been denied their right to vote, but multiple illegals in multiple counties have been removed from voter rolls by county elections supervisors. Letters have been sent to an initial list of 2600 people from the list of 182,000 requesting further information mostly without response, so that their eligibility cannot be ascertained until further information is made available by DHS or other means. By law, residents of Florida have the right to due process before being removed from voter rolls. Florida and other states will be forced to sue the Federal government in order to access the SAVE database which has been fraudulently withheld by the Department of Justice and DHS. One must then wonder whether the Secretary of State can certify election results which he/she believes may be tainted by fraud.
As a parting comment, it now appears that the Obama White House indeed knew about and possibly engineered ‘Fast and Furious’ in order to convince clueless Americans that our Second Amendment rights should be denied. Obama’s invocation of ‘executive privilege’ simply confirms that the coverup by DOIJ now reaches the highest office in the Land! These are treasonous crimes which backfired badly and resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican citizens as well as at least two American border agents. Not only was the Mexican government not informed of ‘Fast and Furious’, but the guns had no tracking devices to lend credibility to ‘Fast and Furious’. Any prior gunrunning projects under prior administrations involved the Mexican government and tracking devices with the sole objective of infiltrating the drug cartels—not taking away our Second Amendment rights! The current Administration must be held accountable by Congress and the courts, or We the People will hold them accountable for their crimes against America!
