(Philadelphia, PA) -- The Justice Department will continue challenging strict voting rights laws in some states. At a National Urban League conference in Philadelphia, Attorney General Eric Holder said voting discrimination still exists. Holder condemned a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling which gutted a key part of the landmark Voting Rights Act. As a first step, Holder announced that he will petition a federal court for authority to challenge a tough voting rights law in Texas.
