At 4:19 PM today, The Hill reported The Department of Justice plans to send federal monitors to 18 states to watch for discrimination against voters.
Monitors will head to Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
Powerline’s John Hinderaker wonders what the point is noting this must be Eric Holder’s homage to the Democrats’ “effort to keep alive the myth of voter suppression.”
Hinderaker continues, “That pretense seems to be a key element in their strategy to keep African-American voters in the fold, notwithstanding that the Democrats’ policies are devastating to black voters’ interests. And I guess it must work.”
“So does that mean that New Black Panthers won’t be standing outside polling places with billy clubs this year? Just kidding. And, of course, Eric Holder has never done anything in a “fair and nonpartisan manner” in his six years as Attorney General,” wrote Hinderaker.

Well, you know what they say…low turnout leads to bad government.
