True The Vote, Tea Party Voting Group, Targeted By Congressional Inquiry

"SNIP.................................................

A Democratic congressman has launched an investigation into True The Vote, a conservative Tea Party group that has attempted to purge thousands of registered voters from voting rolls across the country ahead of the November presidential election.

The organization is pursuing an aggressive ground campaign to challenge people's right to vote based on their residency and citizenship, such as the hundreds of college students who failed to identify their dorm room numbers on voter registration applications.

In a letter to Catherine Engelbrecht, the founder of True The Vote, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) accused the Texas-based organization of challenging the registration of thousands of legitimate voters "based on insufficient, inaccurate, and faulty evidence."

"True the Vote, its volunteers, and its affiliated groups have a horrendous record of filing inaccurate voter registration challenges, causing legitimate voters -- through no fault of their own -- to receive letters from local election officials notifying them that their registrations have been challenged and requiring them to take steps to remedy false accusations against them," wrote Cummings, the ranking minority member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

1. If I received a letter challenging my voting privileges

I would do everything in my power to hunt down those who challenged my right and sue them for defamation and for challenging my constitutional rights.

6. I GOT a letter

From our Republican Sec. of State challenging my right to vote. I went to his office at a public hearing and made sure they heard from me.

And I refused to return the nice form the wanted back from me too.
