Time for the Department of Justice to Step In?

Regarding the 3 posts directly following, re: Bennett, Vu, Dillingham, Blackwell, and even San Diego County - this comment came from a very wise friend:

Now it's time for the Department of Justice to step in (... and make thorough investigations and take proper action against all these... these... these ...election officials!?! And let them not forget electronic voting machine makers, Diebold, ES&S, et al.)

We cannot let such investigations and consequences be only "internal" - decided within the "rough and tumble" of Cuyahoga politics, as the PD has called it - left in the hands of the others elected/appointed who may have their own strong political motivations at play.

We also need to get such investigation finally out of county taxpayer responsibility, as it could positively impact fair election rights nationwide as any even brief internet search quickly demonstrates is sorely necessary.

Taking the necessary actions higher could also allow justice to be done for citizens, while giving the new Cuyahoga board, Director and Deputy some breathing room to begin and learn, without immediate criticisms from the past, only the guidance of priority future needs as they've presented.
