NC Senator Tillis: “DOJ Photo ID Litigation Waste of Resources”

One of the newest members of the U.S. Senate suggested Wednesday that he did not think the Department of Justice’s decision to sue him was a wise use of its resources. 

…In questioning Lynch on Wednesday, Tillis indicated that he didn’t think the Justice Department’s “limited resources” should have been used to challenge the law, which he said he believes will ultimately be upheld. DOJ lawyers should go after the “bad actors, the hardened criminals,” he said, and not him and the state of North Carolina.

“I would hope that there would be some focus on, ‘Is that the best or highest use [of DOJ personnel],”’ Tillis said.
