Postcards from Dianna

postcards  recently mailed to "inactive" voters
Secretary of State Dianna Duran has been taking heat from Democrats over her recent effort to purge inactive voters and voters who moved away.

At the root of the controversy are nearly 178,000 postcards that Duran’s office sent out early this month to voters around the state who had been flagged by county clerks as “inactive” after election-related mail was returned as undeliverable.

Duran in an interview yesterday said the effort was instigated by the U.S. Justice Department, (See letter below). So if this is a conspiracy to disenfranchise voters, the Obama Justice Department is in on it.

She stressed that currently classified "inactive" voters are still allowed to vote -- in fact, voting should take them off the inactive list -- and that the Secretary of State's office by law cannot remove any voter from the rolls.
