BREAKING: The Supreme Court Just Made A HUGE Decision On Voter ID

Voter ID laws are a common-sense way to prevent voter fraud from happening. Yet for some insane reason, the Supreme Court overturned North Carolina’s voter ID law.

Voters In Super Tuesday States Cast Their Ballots

From The Federalist Papers Project:

CNN reports that the Supreme Court has voted 4-4 against reinstating North Carolina’s voter ID law, which in addition to requiring photo identification to vote, reduced early voting and “preregistration” for sixteen-year-olds.

The decision leaves standing a lower court ruling that blocked the law from taking effect:

The court’s liberal wing — Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer — opted not to stay the lower court ruling. Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Anthony Kennedy and Justice Samuel Alito indicated they would grant the stay in part; Justice Clarence Thomas said he would grant the stay in its entirety.

The state’s lead lawyer, Paul Clement, said the appeals court’s decision was “extraordinary” and argued, for example, that the appeals court “prohibited North Carolina from enforcing a voter ID law that is actually more sensitive to disparate impact concerns than those in force in many of its sister states.”

But the groups and the Obama administration said the lower court opinion had been carefully crafted, and urged the Supreme Court to leave it undisturbed for now.

“Once an electoral law has been found to be racially discriminatory, and injunctive relief has been found to be necessary to remedy that discrimination, the normal rule is that the operation of the law must be suspended,” wrote acting Solicitor General Ian Gershengorn.

So their point is that minority Americans are somehow too dumb to get voter ID cards? Yet it’s the law that’s racist… right.
