Obama and Company trying to pull a fast one to keep his old seat in the D column?

Illinois has been tardy in getting ballots out to our men and women serving in the military, and thus their votes may not count in November. This is especially damaging to Mark Kirk since he is a military reservist and soldiers vote for Republicans over Democrats by a three-to-one ratio.

But for the Democrats, it is imperative that this seat be kept in Democratic hands. There will be a lame duck session where a lot of Obama-Pelosi-Reid’s agenda can be pushed through. Because the current senator, Roland Burris, was appointed by the disgraced Rod Blagojevich, a new senator, when elected, can be seated for the lame duck session and not have to wait until January. Therefore, the Republicans need every seat they can in the Senate to stop further mischief.

What makes this inaction even worse is that such skullduggery may have gotten a preemptive pass by the Department of Justice, headed by Eric Holder. The DOJ is charged with ensuring that all states abide by the Move Act and send the ballots out in time. Was the DOJ asleep at the switch? There are certainly signs that the problem may extend from Springfield to Washington.

Could it be that Eric Holder’s and Barack Obama’s Justice Department have become tools to ensure Democratic dominance in Congress? Need one even ask?
