Kavanaugh Court: SCOTUS Allows North Dakota Voter ID Law
The Supreme Court Tuesday refused to force the state of North Dakota to rescind a law requiring voter identification at the polls in November.
“The Supreme Court today declined to intervene in a challenge to a North Dakota law that requires voters to present identification that includes a current residential street address,” said a New York Magazine report. “Lawyers say that the ruling will prevent thousands of Native American voters (and tens of thousands of North Dakota residents who are not Native Americans) from casting a ballot in the upcoming 2018 election in a state that could play a key role in Democrats’ efforts to retake the U.S. Senate.”
In polarized political times, presenting identification at the polling booth has become a partisan issue. The Democrats, who supposedly hate the idea of foreign meddling in elections, (see: Russia investigation), have been battling to keep polling locations ID free so their illegal alien “constituents” can have a say. Conservatives, on the other hand, would prefer that one proves his or her American citizenship before having a say in American politics.
After a hard fought battle riddled with baseless smears and attempted personal destruction, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to he Supreme Court, giving the nation’s highest court a conservative tilt. For the first time, the court has flexed its conservative muscles.
Conveniently for Kavanaugh, one Senator who (very publicly) voted against his confirmation, Democrat Heidi Heitkamp, will likely lose thousands of votes in November due to the Court’s most recent decision. Heitkamp is in the midst of the fight for her life to hold her Senate seat against Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer.
