The Supreme Court has reversed a decision which blocked the implementation of new voting laws in Ohio, a key swing state. The laws cut back significantly on early voting and same-day registration, which allowed for a number of illegal immigrants to improperly vote for Obama in the 2012 election.
The Conservative Tribune reported:
The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals had affirmed a lower court’s grant of a stay against the new rules, Breitbart reported. Tuesday, the Supreme Court reversed the stay pending a decision by the highest court of the land.
The court ruled 5-t0-4 to grant the stay. Not surprisingly, the dissenters were liberal Justices Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan and Sotomayor, all appointed by Democrat presidents.
The suit against the Ohio law claimed that cutting back on same-day registration and early voting would disproportionately affect lower-income voters who move more often then more affluent citizens and who may lack the same access to transportation.
However, the Voting Rights Act, which the suit claims was violated by the Ohio legislation, protects voters based not on economic factors, but on race. The plaintiffs in the suit had made a statistical argument that since minorities tend to be disproportionately represented in lower income groups, they would be impacted more by the new regulations.
Historically, courts have required that challenges to voter integrity laws prove an actual impact to minority groups, not a theoretical one based only on statistical inference.
Democrats have notoriously lobbied for unrestrictive voting standards, because when illegals are permitted to vote, they almost always vote for Democrats. This is understandable when you consider that the Democrats are always the ones pushing to give them citizenship, free food, housing, medical insurance and a slew of other benefits on the tax-payer’s dime.
Eric Holder involved the Justice Department in the Supreme Court decision, saying that the Ohio voter regulations were one of “the latest, misguided attempts to fix a system that isn’t broken.” He added, “These restrictive state laws threaten access to the ballot box.”
Do you think the Democrats would be fighting so hard against these Ohio voting regulations if they prevented Republicans from casting votes? Sound off in the comments section!
