Supreme Court WRECKS Biden’s DOJ Lawsuit in Recent Decision
The conservative majority Supreme Court just handed Arizona and conservatives who care about the integrity of our elections a major win this week.
This decision is going to be very important for the DOJ’s lawsuit against Georgia as well, so it couldn’t have come at a better time.
“The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday endorsed two Republican-backed ballot restrictions in Arizona that a lower court found had disproportionately burdened Black, Latino, and Native American voters, handing a defeat to voting rights advocates and Democrats who had challenged the measures,” Reuters reported. “The 6-3 ruling, with the court’s conservative justices in the majority, held that the restrictions on early ballot collection by third parties and where absentee ballots may be cast did not violate the Voting Rights Act, a landmark 1965 federal law that prohibits racial discrimination in voting.”
This is exactly why a conservative majority is important in the Supreme Court. Notice that three of the justices dissented, those three are the three liberal justices; Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Stephen Breyer.
So what was this ruling about exactly? Well, it was about something though should seem like basic knowledge.
The case was about a law that was passed in Arizona which made it a crime to provide an election official with a ballot that was completed early. Basically, this is about what we saw in the Project Veritas video that exposed Ilhan Omar and how they go around gathering ballots.
So here’s what the decision means. If wanted to go around and collect ballots from everyone in my neighborhood, I couldn’t do that.
In a scathing dissent, liberal Justice Elena Kagan called the ruling “tragic,” noting that crude efforts pursued by some states in the past to block voting access, such as “literacy tests” to prevent Black people from casting ballots, have given way to “ever-new forms of discrimination” since the court in 2013 gutted another part of the Voting Rights Act.
“So the court decides this Voting Rights Act case at a perilous moment for the nation’s commitment to equal citizenship. It decides this case in an era of voting-rights retrenchment – when too many states and localities are restricting access to voting in ways that will predictably deprive members of minority groups of equal access to the ballot box,” Kagan wrote.
