Supreme Court

“The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution,” reads the order issued by Supreme Court Friday.

“Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.”

Democratic Representative Hakeem Jeffries says in his speech that the infamous elections takeover bill is “inspired by Hugo Chavez.” He quickly said Cesar Chavez, but not before social media had the chance to blast him for the slip.

Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas quickly tweeted the video with the caption: “The Democrats; election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington ‘gaffe’-accidentally telling the truth.”

New York Democrat Jeffries had previously said the voting rights bills must pass “by any means necessary” and supported “reforming a filibuster rule that is dripping in racist history.” Even President Biden admitted “I hope we can get this done. The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done.”

On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote, “we cannot and we will not rest until this legislation is enacted into law” after the House passed a bill Thursday morning that combined the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, which now has virtually zero chance of surviving the Senate.
