One of these things is not like the others

What was that again about the whole "painstaking layers of editorial fact-checking" thing with the MSM?

A seemingly minor Texas dispute that began over moving a voting site from a garage to an elementary school will be argued before the Supreme Court on Wednesday - with the potential to overturn a core piece of the Voting Rights Act that protects minority voters.

The so-called "guts" of the law, Section 5, requires Justice Department pre-clearance of voting plans in nine Southern states - Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia - and portions of seven other states.

Um, I suppose you could make the argument that Arizona, while not traditionally part of "The South" is at least in the southern part of the country, but Alaska? Yeah.
