The Federal government will be suing North Carolina’s new voter ID legislation. Who was one leading the charge to have Eric Holder pursue this action:
U.S. Senator Kay Hagan, a Democrat, asked Holder to review the law.
Is it so strange that Hagan realizes that her only chance at being reelected is through voter fraud?
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each state, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each state shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the state legislatures.
When vacancies happen in the representation of any state in the Senate, the executive authority of such state shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies: Provided, that the legislature of any state may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct.
This amendment shall not be so construed as to affect the election or term of any Senator chosen before it becomes valid as part of the Constitution.
Sen. Hagan has shown the people of North Carolina why the 17th amendment was one of the necessary steps to destroy the foundation of our government’s balance of power. Hagan has been as much as a disappointment to North Carolina as John Edwards. At least Edwards was up front in his quest for power. Hagan has sold out North Carolina for the political favor of the administration. What do you call someone who betrays the trust of the people and the Constitution? Domestic enemy.
The Obama administration plans to sue North Carolina on Monday to block newly enacted voting rules that it believes violates federal civil rights law, a person briefed on the Justice Department’s plan said on Sunday.
The challenge would be the second of its kind in three months aimed at voting changes in a Republican-led state. In July, the Justice Department said it would sue Texas. The department’s civil rights enforcers are acting after the U.S. Supreme Court in June invalidated part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act they previously relied on.
Attorney General Eric Holder is expected to discuss the suit at a news conference in Washington with North Carolina-based Justice Department lawyers.
Republican Governor Pat McCrory signed the state’s sweeping voting changes into law in August, saying: “Common practices like boarding an airplane and purchasing Sudafed require photo ID, and we should expect nothing less for the protection of our right to vote.”
Civil rights groups sued immediately, and U.S. Senator Kay Hagan, a Democrat, asked Holder to review the law.
