Section 5 Opponents to Argue that DOJ Breaking Bailout Rules in Order to Save the Constitutionality of Voting Rights Act section 5

I expect this argument to get a lot of play.

The great irony here, for those who don’t follow this issue closely, is that you have people who oppose section 5 of the VRA complaining that DOJ is making it too easy for those jurisdictions subject to its preclearance provision to escape from the Act’s coverage.

UPDATE: Adams says he’s not an opponent of section 5.
