  •  If I read this diary correctly, they DID in 2012 (6+ / 0-)

    and if they did it THEN, and it has taken 2 year to get a ruling, WATCH THEM DO IT AGAIN, on the theory that they can f*ck sh*t up NOW, and pay for it later, if ever (kinda like the banksters who ruined the nation' economy years ago, and have never really been held to account)

    America's LAST HOPE: vote the GOP OUT in 2014 elections. MAKE them LOSE the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate. Democrats move America forward - Republicans take us backward and are KILLING OUR NATION!

    •  If they do it again in the face of a court order (9+ / 0-)

      saying precisely "You can't do that," it would not take another two years. They'd be in court on a motion for contempt lickety-split, under the existing docket number.

      Thumbing your nose at a ruling from the US Court of Appeals tends to not amuse the judges, regardless of their political affiliation.

      •  They'll find a different approach... (3+ / 0-)

        ... one that isn't EXACTLY prohibited by the ruling, and will wind up doing EXACTLY the same thing - like, perhaps, challenging voters one at a time -
        based, of cours,e on the same kind of caging list they used last time, just not done the same way.

        NEVER underestimate how low the GOP will go to deprive you of your vote, unemployment insurance, healthcare, etc.,etc.,etc. !

        They only need two months.

        Once the election is over, there may be underlings who get nailed and take the fall for violating the court order, but the vote will stand.

        Remember NH in 2002? A young man went to jail for that, but did the court order a do-over? No, and that's all they really care about.

      •  They might do it in July, and let the time lapse (1+ / 0-)

        in the litigation backlog.

        Patriotism may be the last refuge of scoundrels, but religion is assuredly the first.
