U.S. High Court Sides With Social Justice Warriors, Will Not Reinstate Voter ID Law in NC

In what is a clear slap in the face to the rule of law, and fair, untainted voting practices, the U.S. Supreme Court has stood by the liberal, activist judges of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which struck down voter ID laws in the state of North Carolina.

The decision — a victory for voting rights groups and President Barack Obama’s Justice Department — means voters won’t have to show one of several qualifying photo IDs when casting ballots in the presidential battleground state. Early voting also reverts to 17 days, to begin Oct. 20.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down several parts of the law last month, saying they were approved by Republican legislators with intentional bias against black voters in mind. Lawyers for McCrory and the state officials — some hired by GOP legislative leaders who championed the 2013 law — disagreed with the 4th Circuit ruling and wanted a delay while they draft an appeal on legal arguments they want the Supreme Court to consider.
