Strange asks U.S. attorney to investigate voter fraud allegations | TuscaloosaNews.com
The Tuscaloosa News reports: Attorney General Luther Strange on Thursday asked U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance in Birmingham to use her newly created civil rights unit to investigate allegations of voter fraud.

Strange is the second state official to ask the Justice Department to probe voter fraud allegations in Alabama.

"Voting is a precious civil right that many paid the ultimate sacrifice to preserve," Strange said in a statement. "This seems to me to be the type of allegations the civil rights enforcement unit in the northern district of Alabama should look into. I hope they will join with us in this effort."
