Justice Department To Sue Fla. Over Voter Purge

The Department of Justice is suing the state of Florida over its efforts to purge the state's voter registration lists of non-citizens. The agency argues that the effort is being conducted too close to the August 14 primary, in violation of federal law. Florida officials counter that their efforts have been delayed because the federal government has not shared a database of non-citizens to help it clean up its voter registration lists. It's part of an escalating fight between the Obama administration and Republican-led states over voter laws.
