4. Roberts is full of it! His reasoning about DOMA defies what he said about the VRA.

 

If the Court should not overturn the "will of the people" or elected officials concerning DOMA, then neither should the Court overturn the Court overturn the "will of the people" via their elected officials concerning the VRA. The research on the VRA that support keeping the VRA in tact was as current as 2006 when the necessary data was presented. Roberts is pretending that there needs to be more current data ...just because ...well really because Barak Obama was elected twice since 2006. The conservative justices who are always touted as being so cerebral are being disingenuous when they say more proof of voter adverse behavior is needed. They just want states like PA, OH, NJ to be able to more easily impose harsh voter ID laws.
