he is totally disregarding the Supreme Courts decision trying to do this. He will lose big time. I know AG Abbott is likely on top of this right now in Texas. So sick of Holder!

He will lose big time, I think, but he is not "totally disregarding" the Supreme Court decision in Shelby County. That case only had to do with the forumula set forth in Section 4 of the VRA. It left in place the pre-clearance provision itself (Section 5), as well as Section 3, which allows the DoJ to seek a court order requiring pre-clearance if it can show that the jurisdiction violated the VRA. This is an approach that was not tested or ruled on in the recent case.
