Toobin on SCOTUS AZ Ruling: 'Destruction of the Most Important Civil Rights Law'

[See NewsBusters for more.] On Thursday, the Supreme Court upheld an Arizona law that states that votes cast in the wrong precinct must be thrown out and prohibitions on who is and is not allowed to deliver a third person's ballot to the polling place. For CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, this was just the latest part of Chief Justice John Roberts' legacy of destroying "the most important civil rights law in American history."

CNN Newsroom host Jim Sciutto set the stage with his typical gloomy outlook on the alleged state of voting rights in America, "At a critical time, frankly, this decision. A time when multiple state legislatures are passing laws that restrict the right to vote. So in 2013, Section 5 is weakened. No more federal oversight required in effect for these kinds of laws. Now Section 2."
