"This really was a dreadful decision that's going to do real harm to real people by rolling back protections against racial discrimination that have been absolutely central to the progress we've made as a nation in protecting the right to vote."

– Brenda Wright, vice president of Legal Strategies at Demos, on the Supreme Court ruling striking down a key provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act on June 25

Interview with Brenda Wright, vice president of Legal Strategies at Demos, conducted by Scott Harris

With their narrow 5 to 4 ruling on the constitutionality of the 1965 Voting Rights Act on June 25, the majority conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court effectively gutted the landmark civil rights legislation designed to prevent discrimination against the nation’s minority voters. Specifically, the court ruling challenged the formula in Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act that determined the list of states and other jurisdictions mandated to receive special scrutiny of any proposed changes in their voting laws. Striking down the section 4 formula, the Supreme Court decision in effect invalidated Section 5 of the civil rights legislation, which required pre-clearance of new voting laws in jurisdictions with a documented history of discrimination, protecting voters’ rights before they are violated on election day. Now it’s up to Congress to replace the formula struck down by the court.  Story continues

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, stranded in a transit terminal at Moscow’s International airport, continues to seek political asylum outside the United States as the Obama administration pressures nations around the world to deny his request for refuge reportedly made to 20 governments. Last month, Snowden revealed details the U.S. government’s previously unknown massive collection of domestic and overseas phone and Internet communications. The Obama administration has responded to the unauthorized revelations by filing charges against the 30-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and recent employee of a government defense contractor with three felonies: espionage, theft and conversion of government property.  Story continues
