Students Joining Battle to Upend Laws on Voter ID

July 6, 2014 by legitgov

Students Joining Battle to Upend Laws on Voter ID --College Students Claim Voter ID Laws Discriminate Based on Age 06 Jul 2014 Civil rights groups have spent a decade fighting requirements that voters show photo identification, arguing that this discriminates against African-Americans, Hispanics and the poor.

CIA employee: 'I submitted a FOIA and it basically destroyed my entire career'

CIA employee: 'I submitted a FOIA and it basically destroyed my entire career' --His request set in motion a harrowing sequence. 04 Jul 2014 His CIA career included assignments in Africa, Afghanistan and Iraq, but the most perilous posting for Jeffrey Scudder turned out to be a two-year stint in a sleepy office that looks after the agency's historical files. It was there that Scudder discovered a stack of articles, hundreds of histories of long-dormant conflicts and operations that he concluded were still being stored in secret years after they should have been shared with the public. To get them released, Scudder submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act -- a step that any citizen can take, but one that is highly unusual for a CIA employee. Four years later, the CIA has released some of those articles and withheld others. It also has forced Scudder out.
