The Supreme Court has largely rejected election-related lawsuits latey. So many were surprised when the high court agreed to take on a case related to Arizona’s recently-passed laws banning ballot harvesting and tightening controls over provisional ballots. Not only did the Supreme Court take on the case, but it killed liberals’ election-stealing dreams in Arizona.
USA Today reports that the case, which it calls “the most significant to deal with voting rights to come before the court since 2013,” ended with a 6-3 majority vote in favor of the state’s right to deal with ballot harvesting and other unethical behaviors loved by leftists:
Associate Justice Samuel Alito wrote the opinion for a 6-3 majority, joined by the court’s conservatives. Associate Justice Elena Kagan wrote a dissent, joined by the court’s liberals, that described the majority opinion as “tragic.”
The case, the most significant to deal with voting rights to come before the court since 2013, dealt with two provisions of Arizona’s voting law approved long before the 2020 election. State officials passed a law in 2016 barring unions and advocacy organizations from collecting voters’ mail-in ballots, a practice that critics call “ballot harvesting.”
Democrat stooge Elena Kagan says that the 6-3 decision is a violation of the Voting Rights Act. “What is tragic here is that the Court has (yet again) rewritten – in order to weaken – a statute that stands as a monument to America’s greatness, and protects against its basest impulses,” she says. “What is tragic is that the court has damaged a statute designed to bring about ‘the end of discrimination in voting.'” The Left argues that these rules impact communities of color disproportionately — but that argument fizzles out once it leaves the media and enters a courtroom, where evidence can be examined responsibly.
This ruling is bad for Democrats, but good for America.
