U.S. Supreme Court Accepts Alabama Case on Whether Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act is Still Constitutional

Published on November 9, 2012, by in General.

On November 9, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear Shelby County, Alabama v Holder, 12-96, over whether section 5 of the federal Voting Rights Act is still constitutional. Section five is the part of the law that requires certain states and smaller jurisdictions to get approval from the U.S. Justice Department before changing any election law or practice.

The lower court, a 3-judge U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., had ruled in favor of section 5.

    Any genius SCOTUS folks ever read 14th Amdt, Sec. 2 and 15th Amdt, Sec. 1 together ???

    — esp. in connection with the 1868 Prez Grant election and the Elephant post election TOTAL PANIC in the Dec. 1868-Mar 1869 lame duck session.

    I.E. add more black Elephant votes – from black ex-Union Army/Navy men

    — many of whom got killed/injured with even higher percentages in black Union regiments in the horrific Civil War than many white Union regiments

    — esp. in 1864-1865 — the extra last regiments pounding the EVIL slave forces to bits – and getting decimated also in the process — i.e. frontal suicidal attacks.
