"Former U.S. Rep. Lincoln Davis filed suit in Nashville Monday over the removal of his name from voter rolls before last week’s primary. Davis, a Democrat who represented the 4th Congressional District from 2003 to 2011, says his voter registration was unlawfully purged by officials in Fentress County, where he says he has lived since 1995. His registration was one of many removed by local election officials this year under a state-directed review of registrations, Davis says. The suit seeks class action status on behalf of other Tennesseans whose registrations were also removed." (03/12/12)
