SCOTUS and The Voting Rights Act

The Supreme Court today showed again why a partisan court is bad for America. Chief “Justice” Roberts and four other conservatives decided today that there should be no pre-clearance for changes to voting procedures in several former southern states that have histories of extreme racist restrictions on voting rights for minorities.

We still have voter supression, targeted at blacks. It is still egregious. The five “justices” that voted against free voting are wrong.

Congress MUST act to correct this perversion of the voting process.
