(Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel) U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will likely try to get involved in litigation over Wisconsin's voter ID law now being considered by appeals judges in Chicago.
"We have already filed suit in Texas and North Carolina," President Barack Obama's attorney general recently told ABC News. "I expect that we are going to be filing in cases that are already in existence in Wisconsin, as well as in Ohio."
Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen is defending the voter ID law. In a statement, he said Holder should focus on immigration, not Wisconsin's voting requirements.

"If Mr. Holder honestly believes that laws ensuring even the most basic form of election integrity violate (the Voting Rights) Act, it wouldn't surprise me if the entire act was thrown out," his statement said.
