RNC to join Rand Paul’s fight to protect privacy of Americans overseas

Hoping to woo voters overseas in time for the 2016 presidential election, the Republican National Committee is poised to join Sen. Rand Paul’s fight to restore privacy rights and financial relief to nearly 8 million U.S. citizens living abroad, The Washington Times has learned.

The Republicans Overseas project would make a concerted effort to register citizens abroad as GOP voters while the RNC steps up pressure to reverse a provision that Democrats pushed through Congress in 2010 that critics say stripped Americans overseas of certain financial privacy protections.

A resolution to repeal the law has won the support of key RNC committee members and is slated for a vote during the party’s annual winter meeting this month. Key Republicans said the move could give the party a leg up in the race for overseas votes, a bloc that Democrats have dominated in recent years.
