(Republican Insider) – Last week, the Supreme Court of the United States once again refused to hear a lawsuit which would have challenged the outcome of the 2020 election, which former President Donald Trump and millions of his supporters still hotly contest.
It was believed that this was due to the fact that the case was considered moot, but in his dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas slammed the court for refusing to take it up as it nonetheless had hugely important implications for election integrity in general.
On Monday, the court also decided to not the hear remaining lawsuits from attorney Sidney Powell challenging the election in Arizona and Wisconsin.
The high court decided they will, however, take up a case that could place new limits on voter rights’ lawsuits.
The Gateway Pundit reports the case considers “Arizona restrictions on ballot collection and that penalizes voters who cast ballots in the wrong precinct.”
The court did not offer any explanation as to why they decided not to take up the case.
“Eight years after carving the heart out of a landmark voting rights law, the Supreme Court is looking at putting new limits on efforts to combat racial discrimination in voting,” Fox News reported.
“The justices are taking up a case about Arizona restrictions on ballot collection and another policy that penalizes voters who cast ballots in the wrong precinct,” the report adds.
This is all just code for the Democrats’ plan to loosen voter restrictions which they say, of course, is all done in the name of promoting voter rights for the people of color they say would be disproportionately affected by such voter restrictions.
A ruling from the SCOTUS in this case, Fox News says, would make it harder to fight their efforts in court.
“It would be taking away one of the big tools, in fact, the main tool we have left now, to protect voters against racial discrimination,” said Myrna Perez, director of the Brennan Center for Justice’s voting rights and elections program, according to the outlet.
The case will review an appeals court ruling against a 2016 Arizona law that places limits on who is able to return early ballots for others as well as a separate state policy requiring ballots that go to the wrong precinct to be discarded.
“The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the ballot-collection law and the state policy discriminate against minority voters in violation of the federal Voting Rights Act and that the law also violates the Constitution,” Fox noted.
This is the radical 9th Circuit, of course.
How will the SCOTUS rule on this one?
