Donald Trump's false claims about losing the 2020 presidential election may have failed to gain traction in the courts, but the former president's political base is racking up significant judicial wins in the country's ongoing voting rights war.

Conservative activists have succeeded in getting 17 states to pass more than two dozen laws tightening election procedures since January. The GOP has also done well defensively, blocking congressional Democrats from enacting federal changes last month.

Now heading into the final weeks of summer, progressives worry their opponents will be encouraged to pursue further restrictions after a notable U.S. Supreme Court decision this month upheld two Arizona election measures, which some legal scholars warned guts the vaunted Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Darn those pesky old laws, they are on the wrong side of history.

I blame the gutless, and complicit, Pence for certifying what he knew to be flagrantly false election results.

Pence for certifying

When Thomas Jefferson was Vice President, he refused to read the Electoral College results for Georgia. This gave him the win over Aaron Burr.

The one thing we can thank Aaron Burr for is killing Alexander Hamilton in a duel. ;)
