President Obama

President Obama, Rev. Jesse Jackson and other thought leaders weighed in on Twitter following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to invalidate a key measure in the 1965 Voting Rights Act on Tuesday. In a 5-4 decision, the justices ruled that Congress can reinterpret the map used to determine which areas of the country must get "pre-clearance" from the Justice Department before changing voting laws and procedures.
