On Thursday, the Supreme Court upheld two longstanding provisions of Arizona election law, provoking widespread trepidation among the Democrats. In a 6-3 ruling authored by Justice Samuel Alito, the Court held that it was permissible for the state to limit ballot harvesting and out-of-precinct voting. Such limitations are commonplace throughout the country, but the Democratic National Committee (DNC) took Arizona to court arguing that these two violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act (VRA). The DNC lost but appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled against Arizona. SCOTUS overturned that ruling and the panicked Democrats  inevitably denounced the Supreme Court’s decision as a brazen assault on democracy*....

If the Court had accepted the DNC’s logic on the VRA, attacks on election integrity laws such as that which the Biden administration has launched against Georgia’s recently passed voting reforms would have escalated nationwide....

Predictably, congressional Democrats are attempting to use the Court’s ruling in Brnovich v. DNC as Exhibit A in their case for passage of federal legislation that would usurp the constitutional prerogative of states to make their own election laws....

 The Arizona election laws to which she and the others object resulted from the steadily rising tide of Republican power in the nation’s heartland — a tide that will almost certainly wash away the tiny majorities the Democrats now control in Congress. They know that the electoral loopholes they exploited in 2020 will be gone by next year, and they are afraid.... The prospect of a level playing field in 2022 is causing them to panic.


* When Democrats refer to "democracy" they mean the illusion of a two-party system which will place Democrats in perpetual power, while minimizing political power of the token loyal opposition - that is, of the Republican party.
