Unfortunately for Kemp, if it goes up the ladder to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals (which Georgia is under the jurisdiction of before SCOTUS), its currently 6-6 GOP and Dem. If Trump holds the Senate though, the current vacancy on it will be filled and that will improve Republicans chances of getting their way on issues like voter ID.
"Republicans getting their way" = Welcome back, Jim Crow!

Halloween is over but the consistent trail of GOP voter suppression, gerrymandering and pandering to racists continues.

All the way from Bill Rhenquist and Operation Eagle Eye in the 1960’s to today’s efforts in Arizona, Georgia and Kansas.

KKKobach is Kansas Secretary of State and is in charge of the Gubernatorial election in which he is a candidate.

Dame sees nothing wrong in any of this.

In August 2018, ProPublica and The Kansas City Star reported that none of the towns where Kobach helped to enact anti-immigration ordinances over a 13-year period still had those ordinances on the books.The ordinances were costly to defend in court, with some localities going bankrupt. At the same time, Kobach personally profited, earning more than $800,000 on legal work for the localities over a 13-year period, paid both by the localities and an anti-immigration advocacy group.

He’s like a racist version of the monorail guy from the Simpsons without the catchy tunes.

I dont agree with officials overseeing elections where they are the candidates.

Do you condemn it as an affront to democracy and the rule of law?

Nemo judex in causa sua


Do you see a pattern in Kemp’s and KKKobach’s behaviour?

Its an affront to democracy but not to the rule of law because it is legal.

BTW theres an upcoming court case that liberals fear will strike down non partisan bodies for running elections.

I would be perfectly happy with a non-partisan Federal authority running elections and taking it out of the hands of partisan hacks like KKKemp, KKKobach and the rest.

Would you?

Or would you come back bleating about States rights or some such nonsense?

I think non partisan bodies - but run by the states not the Feds - would be better. A centrally planned body would make it easier to rig elections so thats not good.

Dems do not want Federal Oversight of elections because then a Federal standard of requiring ID as a citzien would mess with their non existent voters.

Democrats hate the idea that non citizens are not allowed to be bribed and vote early and often.
And the no side has raised twice as much as the yes campaign. I wonder where thats coming from hmmm. :whistling:

Court rules that Maryland's districts are an unconstitutional gerrymander in violation of the 1st Amendment. Not sure which court. SCOTUS has tended to stay out of such cases. In Maryland the gerrymandering is in favour of the Democrats.

Wisconsin assembly looking at legislation to limit absentee voting to two weeks before polling day. This would have to happen during the lameduck session before the new governor and assembly comes in because the GOP majority is no longer veto proof. Also other reports they may try to legislate to stop incoming governor Evers from vetoing future redistricting maps.

Wisconsin is part of the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals so the GOP would probably win if it went up there. Theres only one Dem judge on that court and around 10 GOP.

Michael McDonald of @ElectProject thinks that the alleged NC-9 fraud also happened in the GOP primary in the district, including possible destruction of ballots for Harris' GOP rival Pittenger.
