Supreme Court: No Word on NC Gerrymandering Cases. Still.

North Carolina has had gerrymandered voting districts maps held to be unconstitutional since 2011. And today the Supreme Court again had nothing to say about it.

( ( But hey – why should the Supreme Court care? It is just our basic constitutional rights, civil liberties and ability to have fair elections at stake! So what if our state legislature want to spray hog feces on us and run over us with cars?) )

NC’s New Governor Acts to Withdraw Challenge to Voting Rights

North Carolina’s “monster” voting law imposed a number of voting restrictions and was struck down by the US 4th Cir. Court of Appeals, which held that the law was “enacted with racially discriminatory intent in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and § 2 of the Voting Rights Act”. Ousted former NC governor McCrory appealed it to the US Supreme Court a few days before he left office.
