I can see that readers are aware that the Dem House passed their longed for Federal takeover of elections--authority which the Constitution explicitly reserves to the States. There's a brief article on this at American Greatness:
Here are some relevant excerpts:
The bill passed along party lines in the lower chamber, by a margin of 219-212. No Republicans voted in favor of the bill, which is named after the far-left Georgia congressman who died in office last year. The bill seeks to restore a statute from the original 1965 Voting Rights Act that had been struck down by the Supreme Court in 2013; the statute would permit the federal government to conduct its own review of local and statewide election laws and procedures if the state is considered to have “a history of voter discrimination.”
In the 2013 decision, Shelby v. Holder, the nation’s highest court ruled that demanding the states first seek permission from the federal government before changing voting laws was unconstitutional.
The bill now heads to the evenly-divided United States Senate, where Republicans are just as opposed to the bill as House Republicans were. Even several moderate Democrats have questioned the integrity of the bill, thus putting its future in doubt.
Shelby v. Holder was a 6-3 decision and is based in the constitutional principle of federalism:
The Court held that Section 4(b) exceeded Congress's power to enforce the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, reasoning that the coverage formula conflicts with the constitutional principles of federalism and "equal sovereignty of the states" because the disparate treatment of the states is "based on 40-year-old facts having no logical relationship to the present day" and thus is not responsive to current needs.
If I'm correct that Roberts is attempting to pursue a strategy of encouraging the States to police their own elections as envisioned in the Constitution, then Pelosi's bill--even should it pass the Senate--would likely by struck down by the SCOTUS. Hopefully it won't come to that and hopefully I'm right about The Roberts Strategy, but this prospect is undoubtedly the reason that the Dems are desperately seeking to keep Zhou and Kama Sutra in place for the time being--to pass the bill on a 51-50 Senate vote if necessary and then get it signed.
Meanwhile, at home and abroad, and just because:
