SCOTUS Issues Landmark Ruling For Election Integrity

SCOTUS Issues Landmark Ruling For Election Integrity

SCOTUS handed proponents of election integrity a big win Thursday with a ruling related to voter ID litigation.

In 2018 the North Carolina GOP sought to intervene on behalf of voter ID stipulations which were vetoed by Democratic Governor Roy Cooper and opposed by Democratic Attorney General Josh Stein.

The Supreme Court recently ruled, 8-1, that state legislatures do have the right to intervene in cases such as these.

In this country you need an ID to do everything from buying a beer to renting a car, how could voting possibly be any different? Moreover, the idea that racial minorities cannot possibly acquire IDs is insulting and racist…

The bigotry of low expectations is a hallmark of the Democratic Party.

Here’s more on the story:

Breitbart provided in-depth coverage of the recent decision:

In an 8-1 decision, written by Justice Neil Gorsuch, SCOTUS held that “North Carolina’s legislative leaders are entitled to intervene in this litigation.” Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented in the case.


CNN presented some of Justice Gorsuch’s opinion:

“Through the General Assembly, the people of North Carolina have authorized the leaders of their legislature to defend duly enacted state statutes against constitutional challenge,” Gorsuch wrote.

“Ordinarily, a federal court must respect that kind of sovereign choice, not assemble presumptions against it.”
