In a super rare Saturday morning ruling, the Supreme Court served up a lovely plate of nonsense with a fresh hollandaise sauce, just in time for the election.
Civil rights groups along with the Justice Department had filed an emergency case with The Court after a federal judge struck down the Texas voter ID law and then a federal appeals court put the ruling on hold. The concern, according to the judge in that case, was that about 600,000 voters, primarily voters of color, would be denied their Constitutional right to vote because they don’t have acceptable forms of identification to vote.
Three justices dissented in the decision, and I’m sure you’re not surprised at who they were… Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
Early voting in Texas begins Monday, but being screwed by the Supreme Court is open all year.
