Justice Department to challenge states’ voting rights laws

Holder hinted at the Justice Department’s voting rights strategy a week ago at the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in Orlando when he sharply criticized the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Voting Rights Act.

“Let me be clear,” Holder said in a speech. “This was a deeply disappointing and flawed decision. It dealt a serious setback to the cause of voting rights . . . And this is why protecting the fundamental right to vote — for all Americans — will continue to be a top priority for the Department of Justice so long as I have the privilege of serving as attorney general.”

Supreme Court be damned eh...

 

I'm sure they'll find a judge somewhere.  Picking and choosing the laws he's going to uphold...Holder is one of if not THE worst attorney general in the history of the US.

i agree, people in government openly trying to subvert a supreme court decision is just outlandish.

the court didn't even strike down the voting rights act itself.  the decision forces congress to draw up new requirements which is something that will never, ever happen because of partisan gridlock.

 

it even says in the article that holder's DoJ isn't even attempting to address provisions that were affected by the ruling.

The way I read it...nothing more than codifying what that headline states.

 

Try again....and there's nothing wrong with legislatures/Congress writing laws.  Holder doesn't write laws...he's supposed to uphold the laws passed, but the laws that USSC decisions uphold.

Which is correct, because that "landscape" changes with societal changes.
