Supreme Court’s Landmark Decision Against Voter Fraud In Ohio Hurts Dems Chances For Blue Wave
Victory in Ohio as the State’s efforts to clean up inactive voting registrations and tie off loose ends that would be susceptible to voter fraud are approved by SCOTUS. Liberals are losing their minds over the latest decision and declare verbal war on any State who wishes to follow the same model.
According to USA Today, the Supreme Court has heard a bevy of voting rights cases since its controversial 2013 decision striking down a key section of the Voting Rights Act, which had forced mostly Southern states to clear changes in election laws with federal officials.
Last term, the justices nixed the excessive use of race in redistricting by legislatures in North Carolina and Virginia. This term, it faces cases from Wisconsin and Maryland challenging what opponents claim were election maps drawn by state legislators for purely partisan gain. Another case is pending from Texas.
Several other states that use the failure to vote as a trigger in efforts to cleanse their registration rolls could be affected by the high court’s decision in the Ohio case, including Georgia, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and West Virginia. But according to the League of Women Voters, “no other state … has a practice as ham-handed and draconian as Ohio’s.”
Isn’t it strange how concerned they are about Russian election tampering but don’t want any preventative actions to be taken? Removing inactive voters is not the same as removing their rights to vote -period, but will force inactive voters to re-register in the future. It’s all in efforts of preventing someone else from voting in their place.
As Reported By The Hill:
In a statement, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted (R), said the state’s process can now serve as a model for other jurisdictions.
“Today’s decision is a victory for election integrity, and a defeat for those who use the federal court system to make election law across the country,” he said.
“This decision is validation of Ohio’s efforts to clean up the voter rolls and now with the blessing [of the] nation’s highest court, it can serve as a model for other states to use.”
But voting rights advocates warned they will fight other states that try to enact similar voter policies they see as discriminatory.
