Republicans Majority in Everything and Supreme Court Won’t Revive North Carolina’s Voter ID Law
Didn’t Trump claim the elections were rigged? Don’t we need to make sure voters have a valid ID? RINO Republicans are doing nothing about voter ID laws.
The Supreme Court declined to review a ruling that struck down North Carolina’s voter ID law Monday, dealing a blow to ballot integrity measures around the country.
The law, adopted days after the Supreme Court effectively struck down Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act in Shelby County v. Holder, requires voters to present a government-issued photo identification before casting ballots.
The law also eliminated same-day voter registration, and significantly reduced the number of early voting days. In a brutal finding last year, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the law, in a blockbuster ruling that declared the state Legislature had acted with discriminatory intent when adopting the law, in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause.
The court said the law “targeted African-Americans with almost surgical precision.”
[Only the blacks or illegals that vote illegally (often more than once) for leftist candidates like they did for Obama. Liberals are fine with that. Voter ID laws would stop them from getting a lot of illegal votes so they are against it.]
North Carolina Republicans hoped the Supreme Court would salvage the law, but that effort was stymied by the 2016 general election, in which the state’s incumbent GOP governor was unseated by Democrat Roy Cooper. The new governor and the state’s Democratic attorney general worked to withdraw the state from the litigation.
