Deroy Murdock: Why I Just Sued New York City’s Board of Elections

When I first heard that the New York City Council — my city council — planned to let foreign citizens vote in municipal elections, I thought this was a stupid and absurd idea. Voting should be limited to American citizens, even for local races. If foreign-born people want to vote in U.S. elections, great! But first, get naturalized.

This idea, now a new law, turned out to be even worse than I imagined. J. Christian Adams, Esq., one of America’s leading election-integrity experts and voting-rights litigators, explained to me that this measure violates the Fifteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This foreign-citizen voting law is designed specifically to increase Hispanic political power in New York City and dilute that of local black voters. New York City Council members openly discussed these racial motives as they debated and then approved this dreadful statute.

When Adams told me that he sought plaintiffs who wanted to torpedo this law as unconstitutional, I jumped at the opportunity to sue the New York City Board of Elections and speed this rotten measure’s Subway ride to the ash heap of history. I am proud to be a part of this lawsuit and look forward to a swift victory and the defeat of this wretched new law.  

As for the New York City Council, this handy to-do list might help them use their time more productively:

Fight crime

Fix the mediocre schools

 Revive moribund local businesses

Clean the filthy streets and sidewalks

 Kill every rat in town

If the New York City Council focuses on these things, I promise never to sue Gotham again.

People who take an oath to our Constitution and our nation, THEN GO OUT AND VIOLATE THAT OATH deserve severe punishment. Give them 20 years in prison, and then ban them from ANY govt’ position – even voluntary!

Trump should not get more than ten.
He is an old man in poor health
No one should die in prison.

DetroitDom, I can explain why your posts are forever waiting approval. You clearly have a conservative point of view and the phony lib-tards that run Trump Train News are really RINO liberals that don’t like Conservatives or Conservative points of view. They are always holding my comments for THEIR approval. And my comments also do not have profanities or threats.

Exactly right! The 15th Amendment says “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States on account of Race , color or previous condition of servitude.or any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude – – – – -“IT SAYS CITIZENS YOU MORONS ! ! ! Since the Constitution is the highest law of the land, it is clearly federal law; in which case violating the Constitution is a federal crime,that I’d love to see used on some of these politicians, all the way up to President, who think they can just make up the laws they want.,

So many Trump law suits.
So few wins.
Their lawyers are scum bags.
Rudy is prime example.
The bleeding hair dye, the farts, the dildo store.
