Republican sue California to force removal of ineligible voters form rolls, Sec. of State calls that voter suppression
Three Republican voters are suing California's secretary of state, charging that Democrat Alex Padilla is violating the National Voter Registration Act by failing to ensure that only eligible voters are placed on the voter rolls.The response is absurd. The state should suppress the votes of people who are ineligible to participate in the election. The state is trying to facilitate vote fraud by keeping them on the roll.
The federal lawsuit on behalf of the voters, two of them naturalized citizens, is being brought by high-profile GOP lawyer Harmeet Dhillon — a national committeewoman for the Republican National Committee. She has also sued the state over the recent law requiring presidential candidates to release their tax returns in order to appear on the California primary ballot.
Padilla rejected the suit as a partisan attempt to suppress voter turnout.
