Cardin on Stiff Federal Penalty for Deceptive Voting Tricks

Last night Attorney General Eric Holder announced he’d strictly enforce voting rights laws as new voter ID rules pop up across the country.  This morning on Capitol Hill, Sens. Ben Cardin and Chuck Schumer introduced a bill that would give stiff penalties to anyone convicted for deceptive voting practices.  Cardin specifically focused on the fact that most deceptive voting practices are targeted at minority voters.
