The Supreme Court and voter ID
The New York Times today ran an editorial on the Voter ID issue, which holds that the Supreme Court should not serve the "electoral purposes of a political party" when it decides whether to uphold an Indiana Voter ID law.
The editorial makes clear that, in its view, upholding the law would aid the GOP, since members of communities that disproportionably vote Democratic would most likely be affected (immigrants, African-Americans, the less well-off).
Yet if the Court votes against Indiana, it will be supporting the "electoral purposes" of another political party, the Democratic Party. The Times yet again illustrates it is willing to throw logic overboard for political purposes.
