Republican Attorneys General Warn Biden Admin About Challenging Election Integrity Laws

Apr 11, 2024 | Political News

A group of 16 Republican attorneys general told Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday that he was sowing “distrust” in the American electoral system with his comments criticizing state election integrity laws.

Led by Indiana AG Todd Rokita and West Virginia AG Patrick Morrisey, the Republican officials sent a letter to Garland over comments he made in Alabama discussing the Justice Department’s efforts to challenge Red state laws related to voter identification requirements and safeguards on vote-by-mail initiatives.

“The Biden administration is weaponizing the U.S. Department of Justice against the states,” Rokita said in a statement. “These actions pose a direct threat to democracy, election integrity and the rule of law. We will stand up and defend our rightful authority within the framework of American federalism.”
