Â Â LOUISIANA A SECOND RATE STATE UNDER VOTING RIGHTS ACT!
Good decision or bad decision? Â The United States Supreme Court effectively struck down the Voting Rights Act passed in 1965.Â This 48-year-old law required nine states, including my home state of Louisiana, to submit to complete federal oversight for all election procedures.Â The high court determined that, whatever reasoning existed in the 60s, there was not adequate justification to continue federal oversight today. Â And my verdict? Â Good for the court. Â These nine states have been treated like second class citizens for years. Â Remember Florida and all the election irregularities back in 2000? Â They didn’t have to comply with Â federal oversight. Â So where’s the equal treatment and fairness? Â Check out my new column and my views as to why the Supreme Court finally got one right.
