OUTRAGE: Many ballots not reaching our troops in time.

The Obama Administration has moved heaven and earth to enable vote fraud by stopping the enforcement of state Voter ID laws.

But have they fulfilled their basic obligation to get ballots to our troops?  Not so much:

One day ahead of the election, Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) sent a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to express their concern over delays in ballots reaching military voters overseas.

“We write to express concerns over another serious failure by the Department of Defense (DoD) to safeguard the voting rights of our overseas military service members, which we believe could result in the imminent disenfranchisement of thousands,” the letter stated.

Mail redirection in the military can take between 14 to 50 days, meaning a ballot could reach the voter possibly more than a month after ballots have to be mailed back in order to be counted. The Military Postal Service Agency (MPSA) identified problems with the system after the 2010 election, but hasn’t implemented changes.

And here are a number of reports of troops not getting ballots.

So these men and women are putting their lives on the line for us.  But the Obama regime can’t be bothered to be sure to get ballots to them? 

This is beyond an outrage.  And it is not the first time Democrats have disenfranchised our troops.
