GOP: Justice Dept. Hired Biased Company to Fight Law
Republicans charge that the Justice Department used “an agent of the Democratic Party” to help defeat Texas’ controversial voter ID law, Fox News reports.
GOP leaders suggest the company, Catalist, has a conflict of interest because it has a history of helping prominent Democrats, including President Obama.
“The Department of Justice has a responsibility to enforce and uphold the laws of the land without the influence of partisan politics,” Smith wrote. “When the Department goes to court, it represents the United States of America, not the Attorney General’s political party.”
A federal judge is soon to begin hearing arguments to determine whether to overrule the Justice Department, which declared the law unconstitutional because it disproportionately disenfranchises Hispanic voters.
