Eric Holder journeyed to speak at an event for Al Sharpton’s National Action Network today. (A few years ago New Black Panther President – and dismissed voter intimidation defendant – Malik Zulu Shabazz also spoke at a National Action Network event, the video of which is here.) Holder told the crowd that voter fraud was rare, as he frequently does. But today, Holder said that the Republican National Lawyers Association backed up his assertion. Holder:
Now, we might begin by acknowledging the fact that instances of in person voting fraud are extremely rare. A point from groups of different political affiliation have acknowledged… to the Republican National Lawyers Association have affirmed.
There was a time when the Attorney General of the United States had enough dignity not to embarrass himself by outright lying. There was a time when the President of the United States wouldn’t tolerate an Attorney General who lied. In fact, there was a time when the mainstream media wouldn’t tolerate an Attorney General who lied, even if he was a democrat. Saying that the Republican National Lawyers Association has affirmed that voter fraud is rare is an outright lie. In fact, the RNLA, of which I am a member, is deeply concerned about voter fraud and weekly catalogs incidents of voter fraud in an email to members.
If Holder doesn’t retract this falsehood, add to the long long list why he is unfit to serve.
