Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg penned the fierce dissent against the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision Tuesday to invalidate a key section of the Voting Rights Act, accusing the conservative justices of displaying “hubris” and a lack of sound reasoning.
“[T]he Court’s opinion can hardly be described as an exemplar of restrained and moderate decision making,” wrote the leader of the court’s liberal wing. “Quite the opposite. Hubris is a fit word for today’s demolition of the VRA.”
And, here comes the hack voter fraud salesperson, spinning like a top:
A columnist for National Review Online wrote Tuesday that the Supreme Court’s decision to gut the historic Voting Rights Act is not, as most believe, a defeat for the civil rights movement.
John Fund, the conservative writer who’s penned two books since 2004 on the purported threat of voter fraud, backed up the conservative justices who helped comprise the majority opinion.
“The Supreme Court’s decision today to overturn a small part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act is actually a victory for civil rights,” Fund wrote. “As the court noted, what made sense both in moral and practical terms almost a half century ago has to be approached anew.”
Fund invented voter impersonation fraud, along with his friends in media, so he knows all about “small.” If he’s spinning, they think it’s damaging.
