Quick Update On Brnovich V. DNC

I've been sitting on this since writing about the Arizona election law case that was argued before the SCOTUS on March 2 (Briefly Noted: Arizona Election Law Case In SCOTUS). Zerohedge carried a fairly thorough summary of the case along with an account of the oral arguments:

Supreme Court Appears Favorable To Arizona Election Integrity Laws

For our purposes, the first few paragraphs will do--things look fairly optimistic:

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich urged the Supreme Court on March 2 to affirm that his state’s electoral integrity laws were consistent with the federal Voting Rights Act and should be upheld.

The case Arizona’s top prosecutor argued is actually two consolidated cases: Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Arizona Republican Party v. DNC.

Although the justices peppered counsel for Arizona and the state’s Republican Party with at-times hostile-sounding questions, members of the Supreme Court seemed receptive to their arguments. Except for the more liberal members, the justices did not seem convinced that Arizona’s election laws violated the Voting Rights Act.

There's lots more at the link for legal junkies. It won't make you smarter but it will scratch the legal news itch.


  1. Slightly off topic, if I may:

    What's up with Sydney Powell these days?

    1. Re: Powell, it's hard to keep track but I believe as of Monday the last of her cases were tossed without comment from the court. (Wisconsin Arizona)

      No one wants to touch voting fraud or Dominion. You'll never be able to put the lid back on that box if the cases were successful.

      Sadly, the best hope for those cases would be the billion dollar suit brought by Dominion against Powell. But that's completely dependant on the judge and discovery. Many though Stones criminal case would produce loads of evidence on spygate and we saw how that went discovery wise, it's all about the judge.

      Very, annoying...

  2. I wonder if a SCOTUS affirmation on Brnovich V. DNC would impact HR 1? Or is HR 1 even constitution, without regard to Brnovich V. DNC. Since States are supposed to be in charge of voting.

    1. In the unlikely event that HR1 gets past a Senate cloture vote those issues would be litigated for years.

  3. States will have to begin to stand up to the federal government based on the 10th Amendment. Of course, that will require a governor who's more interested in his constituents then his political future.
