The testimony by former Department of Justice Voting Section Chief Christopher Coates provided fresh scrutiny of the decision by the Obama Administration to drop the federal lawsuit against Robin Carnahan in March 2009, shortly after Obama took office and Carnahan announced her U.S. Senate campaign.

WSJ: Who Will Investigate the Investigators?

“Last year, Justice abandoned a case it had pursued for three years against Missouri for failing to clean up its rolls. When filed in 2005, one-third of Missouri counties had more registered voters than voting-age residents. What’s more, Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, a Democrat who this year is her party’s candidate for a vacant U.S. Senate seat, contended that her office had no obligation to ensure individual counties were complying with the federal law mandating a cleanup of their voter rolls. The case made slow but steady progress through the courts for more than three years, amid little or no evidence of progress in cleaning up Missouri’s voter rolls. Despite this, Obama Justice saw fit to dismiss the case in March 2009.”

    More reasons not to vote for Carnahan.

    I have listened to this. It seems to imply that Carnahan had no authority to purge local voter rolls. Hard to hold her responsible for something she had no statutory authority to control.
