Neugebauer Responds to Holder’s Effort to Target Texas’ Voting Laws

Jul 25, 2013 Issues: Government Accountability, Happening in West Texas

WASHINGTON, DC—Congressman Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) responded to Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement about attempting to target Texas’ voting laws for special scrutiny.

“The Attorney General’s announcement is outrageous. It disregards the Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act and demeans states’ rights.  I’m surprised that so soon after political targeting came to light at the IRS, the Obama Administration would resort to the same tactic to minimize opposition in Texas.  My constituents have been very clear about their response to this power grab: Don’t mess with Texas.”
