Controversies

Voter rights

Template:Dismissal of U.S. attorneys controversy small Hearne's activities in the area of voter rights have widely been analyzed by liberal Web sites as a Trojan horse for voter suppression, designed to suppress the votes of poor people, black people, and other minorities who might not be included to vote for the Republican party.{{#if:Talk||{{#if:Category:Articles with unsourced statements|[[Category:Articles with unsourced statements {{#if:June 2007|{{#if:|from|since}} June 2007}}]]}}}}{{#if:citation needed|[citation needed]|}}{{#switch:Talk||Template|Talk={{#if:June 2007|{{#ifexist:Category:Articles with unsourced statements since June 2007||}}|}}}}

Hearn was reported to have urged, through a senir senior Justice Department official, William Mateja, that United States attorneys invistigate voter groups registering individuals likely to be democratic voters, or to cease investigations of Republican candidates.<ref name='Nat-Journal-Waas-2007-05-01'> [4]

In February 2005, with encouragement from Karl Rove and the White House, Hearne founded the American Center for Voting Rights. Although the group posed as a nonpartisan watchdog group looking for voting fraud, critics, such as People for the American Way and various state chapters of the League of Women Voters, have said that the group was a Republican effot and pursued only allegations of voting fraud by Democrats. The group is apparently defunct as of May 2007. [5]
