FREDERICKSBURG — A 92 percent drop in absentee-ballot requests by military personnel in Virginia is raising concerns that the Pentagon is failing to carry out a federal voting law.
With only 1,746 military voters in Virginia requesting absentee ballots so far this year — out of 126,251 service members in the state —the Military Voter Protection Project says the system has broken down.
And it’s not just in the Old Dominion. MVPP Executive Director Eric Eversole reports significant declines in absentee-ballot requests by service members across the nation….
With the knowledge that the majority of those in the military vote Republican, the Obama administration is intentionally not doing their job and thereby hindering the efforts of those serving in our military to vote in the coming election next month.
According to a “2011 study of 24 states alleging that a paltry 4.6 percent of military absentee ballots that were requested and returned were actually counted in 2010.
‘The military is one of the most underrepresented groups in the country. It doesn’t seem like correcting this problem has been a priority for this administration,’ Alt said.”
Such treatment of our heroes is unacceptable. Unfortunately, this is what one has come to expect of Barack Hussein Obama whose allegiances are everywhere it should not be.
From day one, Obama has exhibited nothing but disdain for our men and women in service. He disrespects, abuses and misuses our military as if they were his own personal hand puppets.
In addition, Obama cannot run on his record. Thus, rather than earn the vote of Americans, Obama acts to suppress their votes instead.
Barack Hussein Obama, a real peach of a guy.
