How many times has it been now that the Federal Appellate Courts strike down these ridiculous laws that various states formulate for the expressed purpose of limiting the rights of voters that they don't want to vote? 20? 30? 40? Whatever the number, the onerous laws are being struck down as soon as they reach appellate level jurisdictions. Over and over and over again the appellate courts find the newly framed laws governing voter ID to be unconstitutional.

ACTIVIST judge ignores legal precedent and calls it a poll tax. Even thought the SCOTUS has ruled on that issue and has turned down the claim that it is a poll tax..


And do not forget that after this judge's original ruling the SCOTUS stayed his ruling and allowed the law to take effect in the up comping election.

Why is it that any time a judge makes a decision that the cons don't like, they're labeled as an "activist judge"?

Today, a DC judge approved a Trump administration request that allows them to get info about visitors to an anti-Trump website. Is he an activist judge, too?

When the judge ignores legal precedent and rules in opposition of precedent and the law they are activist judges.

As we have already found out by the SCOTUS staying his original ruling. He ruled based on personal beliefs and not rule of law.

Technically, every legal opinion is just that -- a legal opinion based on a judge's interpretation of Constitutional law. But differing legal opinions don't make the judge an activist judge.

And in this case, the judge specifically said the Texas law violates the Voting Rights Act and the 14th and 15th Amendments of the Constitution and then pointed out exactly how and why it does so.

(Also, the judge is female. Not male.)

In the case of voter ID what precedence is the judge ignoring, midge? These recent proposed changes that various states have to unnecessarily challenge prospective voters are ruled one after another as being unconstitutional. Why is that? It's because they're unconstitutional, that's why. Judge after judge has given the states the benefit of the doubt pending the state's production of records that voter fraud is prevalent in their states and they need to have additional measures beyond the constitution to remedy the integrity of their elections. The states don't produce anything because they have not experienced any voter fraud. It needs to be something requiring a constitutional change to somehow interfere with the abilities of Americans to simply vote. That is the job of the congress. Not the courts. I expect the propensities of the courts to rule against the states changing their voting requirements to continue. So far it's the courts 100 and the states ZERO.

And the investigations continue,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Ahhh, I see. So then let's say ...

White people=KKK members
Southerners=ignorant
Republicans=racists
Evangelicals=homophobes

Is that how this version of Match Game works, based on your alt-right "logic"?

Let me know, I could play this game forever. Although you're not going to like the result.

By the way, if you'd bothered to educate yourself, you'd know the judge was born in Port Lavaca, Texas. She's American, not Mexican.

You're welcome.

The judge only had to review and quote the Constitution and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to explain her ruling. Next step? SCOTUS? I doubt it. They've declined to hear all the other appellate decisions regarding these same circumstances. The SCOTUS has unofficially dressed a few of these judges and their decisions down and encouraged them to simply read the appropriate documents and previous case law on these issues. Putting speed bumps on the road to the voting booth when no one has been speeding is generally a foolish endeavor. But it's all been fun watching these rightwingnut activist judges trying to change the wording and the meaning of the Constitution and other applicable laws in these regards.

And the investigations continue,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

No she had to stretch the meaning of the voters rights act to make it apply to this case. It is a major grasping at straws to call voter ID a poll tax since Texas offer free ID for those who do not have one.

It's painfully apparent in each case where judges make decisions that the rightwingnuts don't agree with then the judge must be an "activist judge". Even if the judge offers up sound constitutional and case law as are found in this incident. They still think Roe v Wade was decided according to the activist leanings of a SCOTUS decision. The decision in Roe v Wade has been held up time after time and it's legal and constitutional soundness has been tested over and over. But even now this nation remains very divided on this issue and new lawsuits are being filed almost monthly. Even so, I don't expect Roe v Wade to be overturned anytime soon. Obviously we've had an activist SCOTUS for all of these decades, according to the rightwingnuts. I'm glad that I'm not in that bubble of ignorance with them. There is far more good and true information contained in case law than the average rightwingnut can begin to comprehend.
