COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) -- Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich blasted the Justice Department for blocking a South Carolina voter identification law and suggested the Obama administration wants to "steal elections."

During a campaign stop in Council Bluffs, Iowa, the former House
speaker questioned why Attorney General Eric Holder is "so determined not to identify if people are not eligible to vote."

Gingrich went on to say that, "you have to ask, why is it that they are desperate to retain the ability to steal elections and I think that's what it comes down to."

The Justice Department recently rejected South Carolina's law
requiring voters to show photo ID at polling places as discriminatory against minorities.

Republicans argue stricter voter ID laws are needed to avert voter fraud.

The South Carolina primary is Jan. 21.

    Of course that's a fact.Lawyers are the ones destroying the country.They are the ones that have controlled congress for the last century with about 95% of all political positions to run the country.You would have to be an idiot not to see that.You know they don't want this law to pass in any state.It prevents them from sending in millions of fake votes,which the democraps flood in to the elections every year.

    Of course they are trying to do away with voter ID laws,that's the only way the Democraps and Liberals can win an election. The Likes of ACORN and other so called community action groups will shown up droves to vote many times and often being bused from one polling place to another,the DOJ is nothing more than a enforcer for the Liberal Socialist movement.
