North Carolina Sued Over Voter ID Law

Charlotte Observer: "The U.S. Department of Justice will file a lawsuit Monday to stop North Carolina's new voter ID law, which critics have said is the most sweeping law of its kind, according to a person briefed on the department's plans. Attorney General Eric Holder, who has said he will fight state voting laws that he sees as discriminatory, will announce the lawsuit at noon Monday, along with the three U.S. attorneys from the state. Critics said the law will disenfranchise African-American and elderly voters, while the Republican-led General Assembly in Raleigh said the law will protect the state's voters from potential fraud."
