2. When the Supreme Court knocked down that one provision of the Voting Rights Act

Republican legislatures celebrated thinking they could do anything they want. What the SC got rid of though was a formula to decide which states had to AUTOMATICALLY submit any changes to their voting procedures. The Justice Department still reserves the right to go after states that try to screw over their voting population.

What's funny is that the Texas AG crowed that they would be able to do anything they wanted without the feds jumping on them.
