LANDMARK Election Case Heads To Supreme Court!


SCOTUS has agreed to hear an election case brought forward by members of the North Carolina General Assembly.

Republican members of the general assembly are arguing that state legislators should have far more power in governing elections than courts and activist judges.

North Carolina Senate Chair Phil Berger stated via The Herald Sun “Activist judges and allied plaintiffs have proved time and time again that they believe state courts have the ultimate say over congressional maps, no matter what the U.S. Constitution says.”

Many agree that this case could potentially have the biggest implication for our election system since the founding of the country in 1776.

Opponents of the case argue that this poses a massive threat to our ‘democracy’:

The Herald Sun writes:

Berger’s statement echoes what other GOP leaders have also said about this case: Their hand was forced by judges who have gotten more and more aggressive in striking down election laws as unconstitutional.

In recent years under Republican leadership at the General Assembly — and a Democratic majority at the N.C. Supreme Court — a number of political lawsuits have led to state-level cases with huge implications for how elections are conducted.

Conservative Brief adds:

Kathay Feng, who leads the anti-gerrymandering group Common Cause, called it “the case of the century.”

“It is a case that asserts a bizarre and fabricated reading of the United States Constitution … to create a situation where elections are already rigged from the start,” she said.

Eric Holder, a Democrat and former U.S. attorney general under Barack Obama, said it “should keep every American up at night.”
