AG: Record number of voting rights inquiries
AG Holder says Justice opened more than 100 voting rights investigations last year, a record
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Attorney General Eric Holder says the Justice Department opened a record number of more than 100 new investigations into possible voting rights discrimination across the country last year.

During an appearance at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, Holder praised the federal government's aggressive enforcement efforts while vowing to defend a landmark voting rights law that is increasingly under attack in this presidential election year.

On Thursday, Holder said that nowhere is the Justice Department's commitment to equal opportunity clearer than in efforts to expand access to voting nationwide.
