Feds to Sue New York Board Over Military Voting Violations, State Official Says

I'll believe it when I see it.
The New York State Board of Elections expects to get hit as early as Tuesday with a court order from the U.S. Department of Justice targeting counties violating a federal law that protects military voters, the state board’s chairman told FoxNews.com.

The legal action would mark the most aggressive federal intervention yet amid an ongoing debate over how to enforce compliance with the 2009 Military and Overseas Voters Empowerment Act , known as the MOVE Act. The Department of Justice is expected to intervene in several New York counties that missed deadlines intended to ensure that overseas ballots are sent, received and counted on time.
