Target: Eric Holder, Jr., Attorney General
Goal: Investigate destruction of voting records of African American and Democratic citizens
In Shelby County, Tennessee, some registered voters may learn that their registration has been revoked. There have been allegations that the records have been changed without the voters’ knowledge. The ones whose registrations are said to be lost are primarily African-American and Democrat. There is clear evidence of tampering with voting records in order to cause certain groups of people to lose their registration.
Election Commission Administer Richard Holden refuses to look into this accusation. He claims he has checked some of the changed records and finds them valid. However, Congressman Steve Cohen, one of the people calling for an investigation into this matter, says that the records show only 60 thousand people voted in the August primary elections when over 100 thousand votes had been recorded. There is a clear disparity between these numbers, and for this reason, an investigation must be made.
It is unclear exactly what has happened to the records of Shelby County voters. The evidence for some sort of tampering and Administer Holden’s reluctance to thoroughly look into the matter shows that there is a clear need for a full investigation into this. Urge the Department of Justice to launch this needed investigation to see if the rights of voters are being severely denied.
Dear Attorney General Holder:
In Shelby County, Tennessee, there has been an accusation made against the Election Commission. Many voters have had their records allegedly changed to make them ineligible to vote in upcoming elections. These voters are primarily African American and Democrat.
Despite the evidence showing that these select people have had their records changed, Administrator Richard Holden refuses to examine the issue. If the allegations are true, it is a clear and severe violation of these voters’ rights. I ask you to thoroughly investigate this matter to see if these rights have in fact been violated.
