Justice Dept to sue North Carolina over voter law

Monday, September 30th, 2013

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Eric Holder says the Justice Department will sue the state of North Carolina for alleged racial discrimination over tough new voting rules.

At a news conference Monday, Holder said “by restricting access and ease of voter participation, this new law would shrink, rather than expand, access” to voting.

“Allowing limits on voting rights that disproportionately exclude minority voters would be inconsistent with our ideals as a nation,” Holder said.

The lawsuit against North Carolina is the latest effort by the Obama administration to counter a Supreme Court decision that struck down the most powerful part of the landmark Voting Rights Act and freed states, many of them in the South, from strict federal oversight of their elections.
