Lawsuits Are Pending Against Two States, and Parts of Three Other States, Under Section 3 of the Federal Voting Rights Act

This Bay State Banner story lists and explains ten lawsuits, in five states, in which plaintiffs are arguing that the state or jurisdiction intentionally discriminated against ethnic and racial minority voters, and therefore the little-used Section 3 of the Voting Rights Act applies. The cases are pending in Texas, North Carolina, and jurisdictions within Louisiana, Alaska, and Montana. Section 3 says that regardless of whether an area is covered by the formula in section 4 (which no longer exists, due to a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2013), the state or jurisdiction that discriminates intentionally is subject to preclearance, for certain kinds of election law changes.

    The moron courts have let the statutory law stuff get completely OUT of control.

    There are ONLY direct violations of 15th Amdt, Sec. 1 — criminal and/or civil

    — with possible DRASTIC results by a simple statutory LAW-
    DEATH punishments (or merely 100 years in jail),
    ZILLION dollar damages (i.e. possible State bankruptcies), etc.

    i.e. the Congress MORONS do NOT know how to write law to ENFORCE constitutional RIGHTS / PROHIBITIONS.

    See the GIANT debates in Jan-Feb. 1869 about the 15th Amdt — due to having Prez Grant barely win in Nov 1868 in many marginal NORTHERN States.
    i.e. the Elephants wanted black male ex-Union Army/Navy votes in later elections.

    Too many lazy useless lawyers and law school profs to count.
