Federal Judge's Emergency Ruling Puts End to "Insane" Voter Suppression in N. Carolina

Jon Queally, staff writer

Granting hopeful reprieve to thousands of potentially disenfranchised voters ahead of Tuesday's election, a federal judge late Friday issued an emergency injunction and ordered county elections boards in North Carolina to immediately restore registrations wrongfully purged from voter rolls.

"The NAACP is defending rights of all North Carolinians to participate in this election and we will not back down and allow this suppression to continue"
—Rev. William Barber II, NC NAACP

This might be a crack in the dam, but considering the policies of the Reich, I doubt it.

That white constitution loving crusader featured on CNN should have been asked why exactly an "inactive" status should be reason to ban inactive voters from voting? If only HRC was worth the trouble.
