18. WI: Van Hollenís voter-check lawsuit sets off a tempest
Officials and interest groups clashed Thursday over the meaning of Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen's lawsuit against the state's election authority, with some saying it would force thousands off the voter rolls and others arguing it would protect the rights of legitimate voters.

Also Thursday, an election official said the lawsuit could force clerks to check data on about 1 million voters. And critics accused Van Hollen ó a Republican serving as the state co-chair of John McCainís presidential campaign ó of filing the suit for partisan gain.

Van Hollen sued the state Government Accountability Board Wednesday, saying it must crosscheck voter names with driverís license records for some voters who registered to vote or changed their addresses since Jan. 1, 2006.
