NC Spent Nearly $5 Million So Far Defending Its Voting Law Found to be Intentionally Racially Discriminatory

News and Observer:

Since coming to power five years ago, North Carolina Republican lawmakers have spent more than $10.5 million defending controversial laws on everything from redistricting to voter ID to House Bill 2.

And the total will only grow as ongoing cases make their way through the appeals process.

Almost half the money – $4.9 million – went to defend the state’s sweeping voter law, which was overturned by a panel of federal judges.
