Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “RNC ramps up court action on voting laws after being shut out of litigation by Dems for 40 years”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Republican National Committee has been unleashed from a decades-old prohibition against participating in election law litigation, and it is now vigorously joining court action across the country to defend new voting laws in GOP-run states.

The RNC had been under a consent decree since 1982 after the Democratic National Committee sued it over allegedly disenfranchising minority voters in the New Jersey gubernatorial race. The consent decree kept the RNC out of organizing poll watchers, enlisting poll workers and participating in election law litigation.

“In all cases, it’s about transparency,” an RNC official told The Washington Times, requesting anonymity to discuss litigation strategy. “We have to do more. Democrats have had a seat at the table for 40 years but I think that in the first two years of our election integrity program, it was really effective. The goal was to promote transparency.”

The RNC successfully sued in Pennsylvania ahead of the Nov. 8 midterm elections to disallow the counting of updated mail-in ballots.

The party also is taking Google to court over allegedly suppressing its fundraising emails, especially at the end of the month when fundraising is the highest. The case was filed last month and is currently pending in the Eastern District of California.
