Pelosi: GOP attacking Holder to suppress voters
(AP) – 4 days ago WASHINGTON (AP) —
A Republican-run House committee's vote to hold the attorney general in contempt of Congress is part of GOP efforts to suppress votes in the upcoming elections, the top House Democrat said Thursday. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder was "a shameful display of an abuse of power" by House Republicans. She said it was not a coincidence that Holder is the government official in charge of preventing voter suppression and enforcing civil liberties. "These very same people who are holding him in contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote" that also involves big donors who are anonymously contributing large sums of money to GOP candidates and causes, she said. Democrats have complained about states that have enacted more stringent identification requirements for voters, asserting they will discourage minorities from voting.
