I don't think even Trump appointees would let a law stand that basically allows a political party to overturn the results of a free and fair election, because if that's legal then Dems can just pass similar laws in states they control and there will never be meaningful elections again. We'll just have the current makeup of Congress frozen in amber forever. Well, to be precise we'll have the current makeup of state governments frozen in amber forever. And we'll have states controlling the outcome of federal elections, that's insane.
They didn't support Trump's imaginary fraud claims and they probably won't allow these laws to stand either.
I don’t trust John Roberts and I don’t trust the **** Trump appointees to do the right thing instead of basically saying welp, the states can have their own election laws. The problem is that Republicans are fine with voter suppression as long as it’s done on a partisan basis despite the fact that it violates constitutional rights
Well I'm not saying they're going to do the right thing regarding voter suppression, just the part where they say the political party in power can overturn elections if it wants. Not even Trump appointed judges are that stupid, that is a TERRIBLE idea - Dem controlled states will be able to do the same. Republicans won't want that.
