  •  Why are you confident SCOTUS won't overturn VRA? (0+ / 0-)

    I tend to be pessimistic about it. I feel that Scalia, Alito, and Thomas will most certainly vote to overturn Section 5. Whether they can persuade CJOTUS Roberts or Kennedy remains to be seen. But the very fact that they agreed to hear the case troubles me. Any neutral observer would think that given what happened in 2012 is reason enough to uphold the law. However, we are talking about SCOTUS.
