It probably comes as a shocking surprise to exactly no one that the Roberts’ Supreme Court has just struck down significant parts of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
What is breath-taking is how fast the Confederate States have already declared that they are going to enact Voter ID laws:
- S.C. Attorney General: VRA ‘An Extraordinary Intrusion Into State Sovereignty’
- Texas Advances Voter ID Law After Supreme Court Strikes Down Voting Rights Act
- North Carolina Republican Says Voter ID Bill Will Now Move Ahead
- Mississippi Moving Ahead With Voter ID, Too
…and I’m sure there is more to come.
