D.C. District Court denies temporary restraining order against federal voter registration form proof of citizenship requirements

Feb. 23, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Judge Richard Leon’s decision to deny a temporary restraining order against the Election Assistance Commission’s federal voter registration form’s proof of citizenship requirements for Alabama, Georgia and Kansas in the case League of Women Voters v. Newby:

“Americans for Limited Government praises Judge Richard Leon for his wise decision to uphold, for now, the federal voter registration form that includes proof of citizenship requirements for Alabama, Georgia and Kansas. Leon’s denial of a temporary restraining order against the independent Election Assistance Commission, who made the form, is a victory for the rule of law, and a striking defeat for the Justice Department and its sue and settle racket.

“Attorney General Loretta Lynch and her crew of liberal legal henchmen conspired against the Election Assistance Commission by attempting to deny it legal counsel when the federal voter registration form’s proof of citizenship requirements were challenged. The Justice Department thought it could rig the case against the Commission.

Fortunately Kansas Sec. of State Kris Kobach was there to argue on behalf of the Commission and the people of Kansas, whose legislature drafted the proof of citizenship requirements, and Judge Leon sided with Kansas for now. The next step will be a March 9 hearing on whether to issue a preliminary injunction against implementation of the new voter registration form. One thing is for certain, Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department will be less able to rig that outcome.”
