[h=1]Government to sue Texas over voter ID law [/h]
Protection of voting rights, or violation of states' rights? What do you think?WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department said Thursday it will sue Texas over the state's voter ID law and will seek to intervene in a lawsuit over the state's redistricting laws.
Attorney General Eric Holder said the action marks another step in the effort to protect voting rights of all eligible Americans. He said the government will not allow a recent Supreme Court decision to be interpreted as open season for states to pursue measures that suppress voting rights.
