Interesting article. I hope the DOJ will pursue this case especially regarding voter rights violations and employment violations. We are missing some facts. If so, I think it might be worth examining voting during those election cycles. Has any African-American ran for any of the positions listed above? Were they dissuaded from running? How many African-Americans live in this town and how what is the population of African-Americans in each district? I think this is important to know to see if there was a concerted and pre-planned effort to stop African-Americans from voting or holding office which may lead to more questions than answers.
