WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman released the following statement Friday in response to an attempt by the Obama Justice Department to invalidate voter ID laws in Texas:
“This is a clear attempt by a lawless White House to aid and abet voter fraud. Whether it is blocking the prosecution of voter intimidation in Philadelphia, illegally running guns to Mexican drug lords or assisting voter fraud in Texas, Barack Obama has decided the rule of law takes a back seat to ‘Rules for Radicals.’
“A Marist poll conducted July 25 shows 83 percent of minority voters support voter ID laws. Obama’s actions what you see in Venezuela, a president falsely claiming to on behalf of people in order to cover up an unpopular political play.
“I encourage the federal courts to do their constitutional duty and thwart this latest attempt to abuse presidential power to pervert free and clean elections. The only people with an interest in preventing voter ID are people engaged in voter fraud.”
