In its latest election-rigging scheme, the Biden Department of Justice has just announced it is deploying attorneys under its Civil Rights Division to mostly blue and swing counties across the country on Election Day.
In a press release published one day before the midterms, the DOJ said it plans to send its attorneys to 64 jurisdictions in 24 states to monitor polling locations “for compliance with the federal voting rights laws.”
“Monitors will include personnel from the Civil Rights Division and from U.S. Attorneys’ Offices,” the press release reads. “In addition, the division also deploys monitors from the Office of Personnel Management, where authorized by federal court order. Division personnel will also maintain contact with state and local election officials.”
What stands out about the 64 jurisdictions the DOJ plans to “monitor” is that they are mostly Democrat strongholds or swing districts in states with key midterm contests such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada.
These blue and swing counties are facing increased scrutiny this year by RNC and GOP activists — who after nearly 40 years are finally permitted to coordinate poll watching with the national committee and file voting-related lawsuits, as Democrats have been able to do all along. But now these DOJ attorneys, under the guise of protecting “voting rights,” can help Democratic operatives get around election integrity objections at the polls and avoid scrutiny
In the swing states of Nevada, Georgia, and Michigan, DOJ personnel will only “monitor” heavily blue counties that all went for Biden in the 2020 election. For example, Fulton County, one of the three Georgia counties — Cobb, Fulton, Gwinnett — the DOJ is targeting, went 72.6 percent for Biden.
Fulton County alone represents nearly 11 percent of Georgia’s electorate and is notorious for its poorly-run elections. Wayne County, the home of Detroit and one of the four Democrat-heavy counties targeted by the DOJ in Michigan, represents upwards of 16 percent of the vote in the state.
Of the counties targeted in Pennsylvania, two — Berks, Luzerne — of the five are swing counties and the other three went for Biden in 2020. This includes Philadelphia, which accounts for 20 percent of the entire Democratic vote in Pennsylvania and where Democrats are notorious for buying votes.
In Arizona, the DOJ is targeting Democratic-heavy Maricopa County, which represents more than 60 percent of the Arizona electorate, as well as Pima County, another Democrat stronghold. The two red counties on its list, Pinal and Yavapai, face election integrity concerns.
Of the counties in the non-swing states the DOJ listed, most are the heavily blue counties of California, Minnesota, Florida, and Alaska. In Ohio, the DOJ is targeting only Cuyahoga County (Cleveland); in Texas, Dallas and Harris County (Houston). Both counties went for Biden in the 2020 election.
Oddly missing from the list of jurisdictions the DOJ will monitor is the Republican stronghold of Alabama, the birthplace of the civil rights movement. Democrats are always smearing Alabama due to its evil history to justify endless federal meddling with state control of elections there. But this time around, the DOJ’s civil rights division appears to have bigger plans — plans for which they don’t need Republican voters.
