Sens. Kennedy and Whitehouse Request "Caging" Probe

Senators Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) have asked the Justice Department to investigate the alleged "caging" of predominantly African American voters in Jacksonville, Florida by the RNC in 2004. The AP has this report, and the text of the letter may be found here. Their inquiry is promptedly by email sent by Tim Griffin, then with the RNC and later to become interim U.S. Attorney for Arkansas. For more on caging, see Rick's earlier posts here and here.
