The Supreme Court took up the one voter fraud case that has Democrats shaking with panic

Donald Trump and his supporters begged the Supreme Court to take on election integrity cases.

They finally got their wish.

And now the Supreme Court took up the one voter fraud case that has Democrats shaking with panic.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case involving two major provisions of Arizona law to prevent voter fraud.

This case dates back to 2016, where Democrats sued claiming two provisions of Arizona law – one that bans ballot harvesting and another that discards ballots if a vote is cast in the wrong precinct – violated the Voting Rights Act.

Democrats sued claiming the laws were “racist” and finally the case is now in front of the Supreme Court.

Reuters reports:

At issue is the Voting Rights Act’s Section 2, which bans any rule that results in voting discrimination “on account of race or color.” This provision has been the main tool used to show that voting curbs discriminate against minorities since the Supreme Court in 2013 gutted another section of the statute that determined which states with a history of racial discrimination needed federal approval to change voting laws.

The Democratic National Committee and the Arizona Democratic Party sued to try to overturn Arizona’s restrictions. The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year found that the restrictions violated the Voting Rights Act, though they remained in effect for the Nov. 3 election. Biden defeated Trump in Arizona.

When the Supreme Court rejected hearing the challenge to Pennsylvania’s vote-by-mail laws, Justice Clarence Thomas argued the court should have taken up the case to set clear guidelines to stop judges and state officials from changing election laws without the approval of the legislature.

This Arizona case finally gives the Supreme Court an opportunity to weigh in on election integrity.
