Breaking: Justice System Not Entirely Broken

leave a comment »

The Supreme Court has issued an injunction against the GOP’s successful voter-suppression lawsuit in Ohio.

In a unanimous 9-0 ruling, the court did not decide whether Brunner was violating federal law by not providing the information, as the Ohio Republican Party contended in its lawsuit.

Rather, the court said it was unlikely that as a private entity, the GOP had the legal authority to sue Brunner on the issue or that the lower court had the power to issue its order in this case.

Even Joe the Plumber was at risk of getting his vote suppressed by these shenanigans. Let’s hope that’s the end of this tactic for ’08.
