On behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and its hundreds of thousands of members, activists and fifty-four affiliates nationwide, we applaud the Judiciary and House Administration Committees for holding this
oversight hearing of the Department of Justice (DOJ), Civil Rights Division’s preparation for the 2008 general election. We welcome this
opportunity to submit these comments regarding the appropriate role of DOJ in the upcoming November 2008 elections.
