* Ex-Justice Dept. Attorneys Accuse Bush Admin of Restricting African
American Vote to Favor Republicans *

Another scandal is brewing inside Alberto Gonzales's Justice Department.
Former Justice Department attorneys have publicly accused the Bush
administration of politicizing the department's Civil Rights Division which
was formed 50 years ago to protect the voting rights of African-Americans.
According to a recent report by the McClatchy newspapers, the Bush
administration has pursued an aggressive legal effort to restrict voter
turnout in key battleground states in ways that favor Republican political
candidates. We¹re joined by Joseph Rich, the former head of the civil rights
division of the Justice Department, and Bertha Lewis, Executive director of
New York Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.
