It Begins

The DOJ has asked for a one-month continuance the Texas voter ID case. The motion, which is opposed by the private plaintiffs in the case but supported by the state of Texas, asks for the extension for the following reason: “Because of the change in administration, the Department of Justice also experienced a transition in leadership. The United States requires additional time to brief the new leadership of the Department on this case and the issues to be addressed at that hearing before making any representations to the Court.”

Rick Hasan’s “Election Blog” expects that in both the North Carolina and Texas voting cases pending in the Supreme Court and  in the district court,  the DOJ will switch positions and side with the states – and against the voting rights plaintiffs.- that passed restrictive voting rules
