Holder and the DOJ continue to Harass Texas over their Voter ID Law

Attorney General Eric Holder will sue to challenge the Texas voter ID law, the Justice Department announced Thursday. 
The Justice lawsuit will allege that the Texas law violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, which was among the elements of the law that remains in effect after the Supreme Court invalidated the preclearance requirements in June. 
Texas Republicans slammed the Justice Department’s decision to intervene. 
“The filing of endless litigation in an effort to obstruct the will of the people of Texas is what we have come to expect from Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama,” said Gov. Rick Perry. “We will continue to defend the integrity of our elections against this administration’s blatant disregard for the 10th Amendment.”
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), a former state attorney general, said the legal action was meant to boost Democrats’ chances in the state. 
“Facts mean little to a politicized Justice Department bent on inserting itself into the sovereign affairs of Texas and a lame-duck administration trying to turn our state blue,” Cornyn said. “As Texans we reject the notion that the federal government knows what’s best for us. We deserve the freedom to make our own laws and we deserve not to be insulted by a Justice Department committed to scoring cheap political points.” 
And Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said the suit is without merit.
