Who wrote the majority opinion and how in the world did they justify it?
Scalia. Color me surprised.
SCALIA, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which ROBERTS,
C. J., and GINSBURG, BREYER, SOTOMAYOR, and KAGAN, JJ., joined, and
in which KENNEDY, J., joined in part. KENNEDY, J., filed an opinion concurring in part and concurring in the judgment. THOMAS, J., and ALITO,
J., filed dissenting opinions.
The ruling class don’t need no stinkin’ justification!
Scalia, and the rationale is federal preemption: Congress in the Motor Voter Act said that states "must accept" federal registration forms (which require a sworn statement that the voter is a citizen, but no other proof), so states cannot (under the Supremacy Clause) contradict the federal law.
The Supreme Court has become as bogus and corrupt as the congress and the presidency. Nothing they do suprises me.
