DOJ shoots down voter citizenship checks

The Insider has a copy of the DOJ's letter:
Our analysis shows that the state’s process does not produce accurate and reliable information and that thousands of citizens who are in fact eligible to vote under Georgia law have been flagged...
And Secretary of State Karen Handel is not too happy in her news release:
This decision provides a specific example of the inherently illogical and unfair nature of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. It is a sad day for the rights of our state and for the integrity of our elections. I remain committed to continuing the fight for citizenship verification. In the coming days, I will consider every option available to the state, including the possibility of legal action.

I could have saved the DOJ lots of money and told them this. This act is a direct attempt to keep "certain" people from voting.
