4th Circuit Court strikes down NC voter suppression law

Hartmann discusses it in the video below. The court ruled that contrary to the law’s claim to stop voter fraud, which is extremely rare–31 cases since 2000 in over 1 billion votes–the main purpose of the law was indeed to thwart black people from voting with discriminatory intent. The court said: “In fact, it imposed cures for problems that did not exist.” It’s about time the courts roll back this blatant attempt to rig elections in favor of white racist Republicans.
