NC Republicans vow to fight US DOJ over voter laws

Via LH

North Carolina's Republican governor and GOP lawmakers are vowing to fight a lawsuit filed by the U.S. Justice Department challenging the state's tough new elections law on the grounds it disproportionately impacts minority voters.

Gov. Pat McCrory says the federal complaint filed Monday is an overreach and without merit. McCrory says he has hired private lawyers to help defend the new law from what he suggested was a partisan attack by President Barack Obama's Democratic administration.

North Carolina's new law cuts early voting by a week, ends same-day voter registration and includes a stringent photo ID requirement.

  1. stand tough and don't let the fascist Judges affect your stand

  2. They need to just remind the judge that the Democrats aren't in charge anymore---Like they were when the laws needed to be written :-)

  3. Cooper will try to loose it on purpose. Someone (McCrory I guess) needs to hire some hot shot constitutional lawyers to fight it or it's a lost cause.

    1. Guess that's why he hired private lawyers.

    2. I hope so Brock but it's just as likely they hired them so they would have someone to blame when they loose on purpose. Cooper was against voter ID from the start. McCrory is for it but I'm not sure I want him backing me up in a fight.

  4. Defund the "inJustice" Justice Dept
