    Wow!

    Thanks, Ametia, for providing all the links and video of Eric Holder’s speech and DOJ Lawsuit action!

    • Yahtc says:

      I love this strong statement by Eric Holder:

      To other states considering voting restriction like North Carolina’s, I want to say this: I and my colleagues at every level of the Justice Department will NEVER hesitate to do all that we must to protect the Constitutionally-guaranteed civil rights of all Americans.

      • Ametia says:

        AG Holder:

        “Today’s action is about far more than unwarranted voter restrictions. It is about our democracy, and who we are as a nation,” Holder said. “I stand here to announce this lawsuit more in sorrow than in anger. It pains me to see the voting rights of my fellow citizens negatively impacted by actions predicated on a rationale that is tenuous at best — and on concerns that we all know are not, in fact, real.”
