Alaska sues Eric Holder over voting rights

From KTUU:

 

JUNEAU, Alaska— Alaska is suing to block enforcement of provisions of the federal Voting Rights Act

Alaska is among the states required to submit redistricting plans or proposed election changes to the U.S. Justice Department for review to ensure the plans aren't discriminatory.

The state's lawsuit Tuesday claims there's no evidence that Alaska should be considered among the states "where voting discrimination has been most flagrant."

The lawsuit says no evidence was presented to Congress in 2006, when the law was reauthorized, that shows Alaska had any such violations.
