I. INTRODUCTION
In recent years, a growing controversy has surrounded efforts
by Republicans to disqualify Democratic voters through the
technique of vote caging. This technique gained national attention
on May 23, 2007 during U.S. House Judiciary Committee hearings
on the firing of nine U.S. attorneys in 2006. The attorneys were
fired for reasons alleged to be improperly political and irrelevant to
theirjob performance.'
Monica Goodling, a former senior counsel and White House
liaison to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, told the committee
t   Chandler Davidson is the Radoslav Tsanoff Professor of Public Affairs
Emeritus at Rice University.
tt  Tanya Dunlap holds a Ph.D. in History from Rice University. She
currently works as an independent scholar.
ttt Gale Kenny holds a Ph.D. in History from Rice University where she is a
Lecturer in the History Department.
tttt Benjamin E. Wise teaches history and academic writing at Harvard
University. He will receive his Ph.D. in History from Rice University in 2008.
