Military Ballots in New York…

The Department of Justice, read Eric Holder, has FINALLY brought suit against New York State concerning the BOARD of Elections complete and utter FAILURE to mail ballots to overseas Military personnel and their families.  A little background first:

     1.  The 2009 MOVE act requires that ballots be sent so that 45 days remain from the date sent to the election.

     2.  New York asked for an extension, because their primaries were held 4 days prior to the 45 day deadline.  I understand the difficulty in determining who is on the ballot, printing and mailing ballots in 4 days, so I am not complaining about the extension.

     3.  New York was given until October 1 to mail the ballots.

     4.  The Department of Justice, read Eric Holder, brought suit on OCTOBER 12.

What happened in the ELEVEN days between October 1st and October 12th??? 

Someone needs to serve a FOIA request for all communications inside the White House, the DOJ, and between these entities and anyone else concerning this topic.  Did the DOJ DELAY the lawsuit, so as to make it appear that they are attempting to do their jobs, but making it so that the ballots (or a portion of) will not be able to be counted??  Why was a suit not initiated on October 2nd?? 

Not only does the New York Board of Elections appear incompetent, at best, or malicious/criminal, at worst, but it appears that the DOJ is colluding in the farce.  Are you telling me that the DOJ needed 11 days to get the paperwork in order??  This is part of the same administration that needed LESS than 3 days to read and comprehend a 2,000+ page fiasco called ObamaCare.

Please tell me that someone in the Legislative Branch will be conducting an investigation into whether this is another attempt to STEAL an election!!!

For more information about the situation see Foxnews or the New York Times.

UPDATE: It appears that New York is only one of a FEW states that are having problems with letting our Military personnel overseas to vote.  Foxnews has another article concerning (mainly) New Mexico.  Funny, these states are run by Democrats.
