    ... I still think that this 6 vote thing wouldn't even accomplish this goal of getting more latinos elected. Seriously, who casts votes that spread out among several candidates? That defeats the entire purpose of your vote!

    Let me state yet again that election law is NEVER supposed to have an intent to get more/less of ANYONE elected.

    Argue that with Scalia and Thomas. Those dirty liberals.

    If the judge finds that the current method disenfranchises certain groups, they can take actions to remedy the situation.

    It doesn't matter WHO says so - creating election law that intentionally favors the election of --anyone-- absolutely and positively runs against the entire idea of 'fair' electiions.

    If we're going to handicap elections, why bother with them at all?

    And again, this was done by George Bush's justice department and a judge appointed by George Bush. Why are you whining about liberals?

    Hell, even Scalia and Thomas have ruled on cases like these and find them to be constitutional. Those are some big liberal judges, right?
    Holder v. Hall, 512 U.S. 874 (June 30, 1994).
    First, the fact that Scalia said that the law as written would require one thing doesn't mean that he's saying the law is a good idea.

    Second, Holder v. Hall reversed the lower court's attempt to create a remedy under Sec. 2 of the VRA.
