Just in case you were considering suppressing someone’s vote today, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder would like to make sure that you know that he’s watching you. Closely. But in the most fair and non-partisan way, of course. So don’t try any funny business.
“One of the Justice Department’s most sacred responsibilities is ensuring access to the ballot box for every eligible American,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a video message on the department’s website.
“I want the American people to know that the Justice Department will stand vigilant — working in a fair and nonpartisan manner to ensure that every voter can cast his or her ballot free of intimidation, discrimination or obstruction,” he said.
I feel like, if there were routine instances of people showing up to polling locations specifically to intimidate voters, the news media, which is staying remarkably quiet at the moment, lest they be forced to do a story about Republicans potentially retaking the Senate, would be all over it like they were Gwyneth Paltrow picking up a $600 face cream. So far, I haven’t heard of much, unless you count a couple of internet stories about old people trying unsuccessfully to use electronic voting machines.
But anyway, it’s a nice thought on the part of the DOJ and you should probably keep from loitering around your local polling in a strange costume location just in case.
