• HOUSTON, TX. -- April 1, 2015: True the Vote (TTV), the nation's leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, today released the following statement in reaction to the U.S. Department of Justice’s decision to not seek criminal contempt charges for former IRS official Lois Lerner:

    The double standard is breathtaking,” True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht said. “Lois Lerner played the part of front line operative in a targeting scandal that reveled in ‘putting politics before a citizen’s constitutional rights.’ Time and again, Lerner abused the power of her IRS position to shut down organizations whose views she did not share. Her lawyer said she’s focused on returning to a normal life. How about those lives she worked to destroy?

    Lerner may have beaten the contempt of Congress issue, but True the Vote has no intention of backing off now. We can confirm that the FBI’s criminal investigation continues on through numerous Freedom of Information Act requests filed. 

    "Lerner will forever be remembered as the symbol of an Administration willing to betray the trust of the American people for the sake of its own political survival.

  • Kansas and Arizona say yes. NRO has a detailed look at the case:

    A major voting-law case that the Supreme Court looks likely to take next term, Kobach v. Election Assistance Commission, sets out a dispute between states and the federal government over whether Kansas can require inclusion of a proof-of-citizenship requirement on the National Mail Voter Registration Form. As the name suggests, this form is a single document that can be used nationwide to register to vote, with varying instructions for each state; the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) is a federal agency whose responsibilities include creating and administering this form…

    As Kobach states in petitions for Kansas and co-plaintiff Arizona, maintaining confidence in our voter-registration system — in this case, by removing ineligible voters from the voter rolls — is central to the National Voter Registration Act, the 1993 law that created the standard federal registration form. But it’s the law’s other provisions, on expanding ballot access, that seem to get all the attention, and the EAC barely mentioned the NVRA’s election-integrity goals in its 40-page decision denying Kobach’s request.

    Kansas and Arizona have now filed their request for SCOTUS review:

    Kobach argues Supreme Court guidance is needed because the case is of paramount national importance. “It’s a really profoundly important case,” Kobach said. “The founding fathers were emphatic that the states get to decide who is a qualified voter and who is not. It was a critical point in the Constitution that the federal government would have to follow the states on this matter.”
