The Supreme Court delivered a devastating blow to Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations when it announced last week that it would not block Texas’s strict but reasonable photo ID law — meaning that Clinton cannot rely on voter fraud to help her in the general election against likely opponent Donald Trump.
According to USA Today, the contentious law permits voters to identify themselves at the polling booths with only a select few types of photo IDs — namely those handed out by the state and not, as an example, colleges.
Civil rights groups have argued that the law discriminates against minorities and “could be fatal” if not blocked before the November election, but for now, they must sit tight and simply wait.
Specifically, they must wait for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit to hear the case next month. If the court fails to reach a decision, then the Supreme Court might itself vote on the matter some time after July 20.
