  •  Why not just do this for all states? (4+ / 0-)

    regardless of a history of racism in those states.

    If you want to change your voting laws, and it may impact a Federal election (President, Senate, or Congress), then you have to clear those changes with the DOJ.

    •  That has been suggested (0+ / 0-)

      But it is just unnecessary. Remember where the the pre-clearance states were and continue to pre-clear or bail the fuckers together.

      It has been pointed out that DOJ has enough to do with weaselly Wall Street types, bigots, anti-abortionists, Guantanamo, etc etc.

      What stronger breast-plate than a heart untainted! Thrice is he arm'd, that hath his quarrel just; And he but naked, though lock'd up in steel, Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted. King Henry, scene ii
