Catherine Engelbrecht, leader, True the Vote, response to PolitiFact Texas (excerpted)

Jan. 25, 2012, 2:33 p.m.



The sources I provided you with led us to reach the conclusion we did.  In public forums, AG Holder is in lockstep gait with the NAACP on the issue of voting rights and their shared view of measures to enact photo voter ID; adopting the same memes, the same framing, the same language. Inside the Department of Justice we know that all three entities; NAACP, DOJ, and UN, have met on many occasions and have discussed UN participation in elections.  This information came from former DOJ employees who sat in on the meetings and whose testimony is regarded highly enough that they have been called to testify before Congress on other issues involving conduct of the DOJ Elections division. We stand by the statement printed on our flyer.

Good afternoon.


After looking at news stories, including the items you noted, and talking to the DOJ, NAACP and Adams, I haven’t found any indication that AG Holder backs the NAACP-steered desire to have the UN investigate US elections.


Could you specify/elaborate on how True the Vote reached this conclusion?
