"In Georgia, a Victory for Citizenship Verification"

It looks like the Illegal Immigrant Amnesty/Get Out The Vote drive the Democrats are dreaming about isn't going to happen these next several election cycles.


"The Justice Department had not even filed an answer to the complaint before it agreed to settle. When the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division first objected to Georgia’s verification process, sources told me that it had virtually no supporting evidence. Instead, the objection was driven by the ideology of the lawyers handling the Section 5 review process, including Deputy Chief Bob Berman. They wanted to please their allies in the liberal advocacy world, such as the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund and La Raza, which object to such verification and were gambling that Georgia would just accept the objection. They were very worried that if Georgia sued, the Division would lose the case in court."

I'm interested to see if Deputy Chief Bob Berman is the same guy I knew from my racing days back in the 70s and 80s.

  1. It is amazing that DOJ folded so quickly.
