In a letter to members of Glenn Beck’s tea party offshoot group, the 9/12 Project, one of the group’s Georgia leaders sent an alarmed message to members warning them to to watch out as their “civil liberties are being eroded,” by President Obama’s newly created Presidential Election Commission.
According to the White House’s website, the election commission’s purpose is to “make recommendations to promote the efficient administration of elections in order to ensure that all eligible voters have the opportunity to cast their ballots without undue delay, and to improve the experience of voters facing other obstacles in casting their ballots, such as members of the military, overseas voters, voters with disabilities, and voters with limited English proficiency.”
That was cause for alarm from Jack Staver, Chair of the Northwest Georgia 9/12 Commission, who sent an email to the full membership of the group referring to Obama on multiple occasions as “dictator in chief.”
“Again, the dictator in chief has struck again with his executive order of March 28, 2013. What a better way to set up your third term than to control the election process. Watch out as our liberties are being eroded daily while our ‘representatives’ sit back and do nothing!” Staver wrote in all caps.
“Yes, I called [Sen. Johnny] Isakson, [Sen. Saxby] Chambliss and [Rep. Phil] Gingrey and no one, yes, no one had a clue what I was talking about! They should be screaming from the rooftops!” he continued.
Staver asserts that he was on hold with Gingery’s office and was told by representatives from his office, “It’s nothing to worry about, they are just making sure everybody gets to vote.”
That was apparently of little solace, as Staver continued in the letter, “Don’t you all feel better that our ‘representavives’ are helping the dictator in chief give away our liberties? It’s only a little bit at a time, not to worry!”
He then linked to text of the executive order on the Whitehouse.gov website.
“BE SILENT AND TAKE IT, OUR RISE UP AND EXCERCISE YOUR FREEDOM WHILE WE STILL CAN,” Staver said at the letter’s conclusion.
According to Sec. 5 of the executive order, the commission will be dissolved or terminate “30 days after it presents its final report to the President.”
