A group of 23 state attorneys general sent a letter to leaders in Congress on Tuesday that threatened to file a lawsuit over a Democrat voting bill if it becomes law.
Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita, who led the group, addressed the letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
“The bill, as introduced, would allow the United States Department of Justice to usurp the authority states rightly possess over their own elections, essentially federalizing the election system,” the letter said.
“If these provisions are enacted, rest assured that the undersigned will aggressively defend our citizens’ rights to participate in free and fair elections without unconstitutional federal intrusion,” it said.
The coalition of attorneys general also noted their concern about making the Department of Justice an “election czar” that would hold power over states’ laws.
