MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange said this morning’s Supreme Court ruling was a major victory for Alabama and other states that had been subject to the preclearance requirement of the Voting Rights Act. [...]
Strange said, “Our initial conclusion is that Alabama is no longer subject to the pre-clearance requirements of Section 5.
Today’s ruling will pave the way for the state’s new photo voter ID law to be used in the June 2014 primaries without seeking federal approval, Strange said.
The good news is racism is over. Or so they tell me.
Can I just say that Luther Strange sounds like the name of a comic book villain?
