SUPREME COURT AGREES TO REVIEW ARIZONA “CITIZEN VOTER” LAW: The law requires proof of U.S. citizenship in order to vote. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (a very liberal court) ruled Arizona’s law unconstitutional, reasoning that a federal law–the National Voter Registration Act of 1993–preempted state laws such as Arizona’s. The AZ law is stayed pending the outcome of the Supreme Court’s decision. Oral arguments are expected in early 2013.
The chutzpah of Arizona, requiring voters to prove citizenship–how discriminatory!
