Arizona back in court – again – as feds sue over tough voter ID law

WASHINGTON – Voting rights advocates last Wednesday welcomed the Justice Department's decision to sue over Arizona's strict new voter ID law that federal officials called a "textbook violation of the National Voter Registration Act."

It's just the latest legal challenge to election laws in Arizona, which have landed before the Supreme Court twice in recent years – winning once and losing once – in what has become a frustrating "broken record" for some advocates.

"It's very disturbing and it's just getting tiring," said Petra Falcon, executive director of Promise Arizona. "What a waste of money, waste of energy."
