The Time of the Judges…the Supremes, that is.

In the Pelican Brief by John Grisham there were two (2) Supremes

caught up in murder and cover-ups.

Crowley/The New York Times –    Wade Henderson, president and C.E.O. of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, criticized the decision on Tuesday. The court divided along ideological lines, and the two sides drew sharply different lessons from the history of the civil rights movement and the nation’s progress in rooting out racial discrimination in voting. At the core of the disagreement was whether racial minorities continued to face barriers to voting in states with a history of discrimination.

Voter suppression was proven in George and Florida in the 2018 Midterm Elections.

All kinds of crooks on the loose.
