Appeals Court Blocks North Carolina Voter ID Law as ‘Discriminatory’

In North Carolina, three judges of an appeals court voted to block the state’s new voter ID law, falsely claiming that the law has ‘discriminatory intent,’ according to Fox News.

With their ruling, the judges overturned a previous ruling by a lower court that declared the law to be constitutional. After being passed by the state legislature, the law was approved by the voters of North Carolina in 2018, who voted for it to be added to the state’s constitution. The appeals court judges claimed, without evidence, that the law would discriminate against black voters.

The lawsuit against the law was filed by the far-left Southern Coalition for Social Justice, who brought the case to the appeals court after their arguments were defeated in the lower court. Proponents of the law have noted that the law actually makes it easier for voters to get identification by expanding the types of identifications that qualify for voter registration. Lawyers on behalf of the state plan to appeal the ruling to the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.

All three of the judges who voted against the law – Toby Hampson, Allegra Collins, and John Arrowood – have been noted as registered Democrats, which seems to confirm that they all had a clear bias in their ruling.
