  •  SCOTUS threw out most of preclearance (1+ / 0-)

    based on the obvious lie that the 1960s formula does not apply today when the same kinds of behavior are going on, but not any of the rules on what constitutes a violation. We have the more difficult road of waiting until suppression measures are implemented and then going to court, instead of DoJ saying Nuh-uh when suppression is proposed.

    There is still a way to put states, counties, and cities on the preclearance list for bad behavior. It's just harder than applying the previous rule that looked at their history.

    When we take the House again and nuke the filibuster on legislation we can write new preclearance rules with a new formula.

    Back off, man. I'm a logician.—GOPBusters™
