"AND FINALLY:"

You have those down here as well? I had to leave and take a **** after looking at how much I would have to read. And we wonder why the staffs of legislators keep getting larger.

Ms. Tennant's statement of "proud of her reign," is one of the most audacious statements that a politician has ever made! Iresponsible and ridiculous! It does not matter whether an office holder is Democrat or Republican to make such a statement as if to refer to herself as "royality" and her time in office is viewed as a "reign" is inexcusable! It carries the connotations of entiltlement. If I were on the fence regarding Ms. Tennant's candidancy, this statement would certainly have me voting for the opposition. Inexcusable, yet it speaks volumes about Ms. Tennant's attitude and personality.

WHY isn't Natalie Tennant, the Secretary of State doing anything about forcing counties to 'clean up their voter rolls?'

Why isn't the Governor doing something about 'ensuring integrity and honesty' in WV elections by forcing counties to clean up their voter rolls?

AND FINALLY:

Judicial Watch is now doing the job of the U.S. Justice Department.” A Justice Department representative did not respond to phone and email inquiries from TheBlaze. Earlier this month, Judicial Watch also sent letters to California, New Mexico, Kentucky, West Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri and Illinois notifying them of “apparent problems” and asking these states to provide records of steps taken to assure the accuracy of the voter lists.

CONTINUED: In Iowa, there were more people registered to vote than were living in the state in at least 24 counties in 2012, up from 10 counties in 2010. In Colorado, that number increased from 10 counties in 2010 to 22 counties in 2012, according to Judicial Watch. The data was compiled by comparing U.S. Census data with U.S. Election Assistance Commission information. In a letter to top election officials, Judicial Watch said it will file lawsuits if Iowa, Colorado and the District do not correction violations of Section 8 of the NVRA within 90 days. “Dirty voter rolls mean dirty elections,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said during Monday’s press conference. “Many states are shirking their legal responsibilities to maintain clean voter rolls. This undermines confidence in our election system and outrageously, the Obama Justice Department simply refuses to enforce the federal law that requires states to take responsible steps to clean voter rolls. Judicial Watch is now doing

CONTINUED:

“There has been to my knowledge a demonstrated lack of interest in the Justice Department in pursuing these lawsuits,” Popper said. “In fact, the one claim that had anything to do with this list maintenance coming out of this Justice Department concerned the lawsuit that it commenced and then lost in which it tried to force the state of Florida to stop removing non-citizens who are on the voter rolls in the run up to the 2012 elections. Other than that, the Obama administration has no interest in pursuing Section 8 lawsuits.”

CONTINUED:

States and municipalities are required to keep legitimate roils under Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act, better known as the Motor Voter Law enacted in 1993. Section 7 of the NVRA made voter registration available at local departments of motor vehicle locations and other government offices. Section 8 required a system in place to ensure the voting rolls were kept clean to preserve election integrity.

Mr. LUCAS writes and tells the Blaze that Iowa and Colorado, typically battleground states in presidential and congressional campaigns, each have more registered voters than they have adults over the age of 18 living in the state, according to a conservative watchdog group’s analysis. The same is true of Washington, D.C., which is set to hold a primary in its mayoral election next week. Judicial Watch is threatening legal action against the two states and the nation’s capital if immediate steps aren’t taken to clear the voter rolls of dead voters, voters who have moved away or voters that that have become ineligible for other reasons.

Fred Lucas writes on this problem that Obama administration/Holder, DOJ has NO intentions of filing lawsuits against said states for not abiding by this law to clean up voter rolls. They only fight 'against' cleaning them up like the lawsuit against Florida that Obama LOST, attempting to force them NOT to clean them up! Yeah... didn't work out for Al GOre in 2000 either. Cheaters! Even THEY know without cheating they cannot win anything!

WOndering if Democrats will be discussing THIS major VOTER LAW breaker:

WV is one of several states showing MORE voters than 'eligible adults' in several counties in state. One Group, Judicial Watch is sueing for these states to obey the LAW and clean up their voter rolls! Now we know why democrats hate voter ID; they can only win through cheating!!

Ah, a liar's convention. More blowing and crowing by the Democrats telling us how they will set everything straight. Haven't we been down this road, like for the last 150 years as Democrats promised the people this state prosperity and good times, and all we got was poverty, unemployment and no jobs.

This meeting will be nothing more than more of the same tired promises with no action. Liars, one and all.

The Democratic Party doesn't need to do anything ... just place their names on the ballot ... the blind sheep will vote straight Democrat no matter their qualifications, intelligence, character or moral fiber ... the same blind sheep that elected the big Democrat Obammy, not once, BUT TWICE! ... as he continues to undermine every ideal that made America strong ... I'm not sure how much longer this nation can endure more of the Democratic Party!

Del. Mary Poling, D-Barbour, who is not seeking re-election, attended the forum.

"I believe that with my age and my family situation it's time for me to retire," Poling said.

Poling also said that this election is going to be one of the most important elections because the margins are close enough that Republicans could win the House.

Yes she's correct; we're sick and tired of false promises of democrats for 50 years in WV. They've had at least 50 years to turn WV into a state where you can make a decent wage with decent JOBS and they've failed, failed, failed!!! All we got from dems were higher taxes; higher gas prices; higher unemployment; higher percentage of welfare recipients and bottom of the list every year for the poorest education record! Glad some of these responsible are resigning. Let's NOT make same mistake for another 50 years. Conservatives WILL get the job done; not just keep promising same thing over and over and over without RESULTS!!!
