Al Sharpton: Holder Critics Targeting ‘Black Attorney General’ over Voting Laws

Breitbart, June 5, 2013

Wednesday morning on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Reverend Al Sharpton delivered an impassioned defense of Attorney General Eric Holder in the midst of accusations his Justice Department improperly seized communications records from journalists at the Associated Press and Fox News. Sharpton claimed Holder’s Republican critics such as Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) were targeting the Attorney General because of his stance on voting laws such as voter ID, a hot topic during the 2012 presidential election.
