Speaking at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) convention in Baltimore on Monday, former attorney general Eric Holder denounced President Trump’s new Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, claiming the Trump administration is just trying to keep African Americans from voting.
Holder went on the attack against Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, one of the key members of the commission, as a “fact-challenged zealot” and said he was “up to no good.”
“This commission, led by a fact-challenged zealot, will come up with bogus reasons why further restrictions should be placed on the right to vote,” Holder ranted. “This commission is up to no good!”
He claimed Republicans are just trying to suppress the minority vote.
“Too many in this country are trying to make it too hard, to make it too difficult for the people,” Holder said. “Let me be frank, voter fraud did not become an issue in North Carolina, as in other places, until people of color started to cast ballots in record numbers.”
“People of good faith, people grounded in facts — not alternative facts, which need to be called what they are: lies … people of good faith really have to ask, ‘Where is the problem?’” Holder said, adding, “Speak out, don’t be afraid, don’t worry about being the subject of a tweet. We must use our best efforts to ensure that this most essential of American rights, the right to vote, is protected for this, and protected for future generations.”
Trump’s new Commission on Election Integrity, created to investigate and end voter fraud, held its first meeting last Wednesday, July 20, which much of the mainstream media completely blacked out.
Holder is coming back in full swing, firing up the NAACP to stop it.
Immediately after the November election, Holder declared he was going to get the electoral college abolished and slammed the suggestion that people should have to provide photo identification in order to vote in U.S. elections.
