Voting Rights Group Vanishes amid Fraud Charges

A suddenly shadowy group once at the heart of GOP claims of widespread voter fraud is suspiciously absent from the current voter fraud debate at the heart of the US Attorney firings scandal.

The American Center for Voting Rights testified before Congress in 2005, claiming massive voter fraud efforts by Democrats. Their members turned out to be GOP operatives and the source of their million dollar war chest was never revealed.

But as facts emerge about how the fired US Attorneys refused to prosecute possibly trumped up charges of Democratic voter fraud, the group has disappeared -- it's members are refusing to talk. (NPR)
