🗞*COVID NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 🗞
In another miraculous development Monday, New York’s Supreme Court struck down a new ordinance allowing non-citizens to vote in the Big Apple. The law would have added 800,000 new voters to the rolls, allowing resident non-citizens to vote for mayor, public advocate, city council, borough presidents, and school boards.
Justice Ralph Porzio wrote the decision, saying the law directly violated the New York State Constitution. “The New York State Constitution expressly states that CITIZENS meeting the age and residency requirements are entitled to register and vote in elections,” he explained.
The bill allowed non-citizens to register in political parties and vote in local elections as long as they were residents of New York City for at least 30 days and had a green card or a working visa. In other words, temporary foreign residents could vote in NYC elections. Makes sense. Mayor Eric Adams was on board, saying that while the new law might not be legal, green card holders should get the vote, because fairness.
Who cares about trifles like legality and constitutions anyway?
Thank God for the judicial branch. Am I right?
A highly-destructive myth about the U.S. government has been a permanent fixture of American politics for as long as I can remember. The myth, which seems mostly held by folks on the left, is that there is a bench of highly intelligent experts available to “help” a popular president who might be a little light in experience or, shall we say, intellectual heft. I call it the “hired expertise” theory of politics.
For example, President Obama’s pre-White House resume was a little on the thin side, having served only one term in the U.S. Senate and before that held a job as a paid political activist (“community organizer”). But that thin resume was no problem! He would just hire or appoint super-smart people with experience, and brainy subject-matter experts. That way his oratory and diversity strengths could shine, and any weaknesses would be erased by anonymous flocks of unaccountable administrators and skilled bureaucrats.
If Biden hasn’t shaken people of this myth, I don’t know what will.
🗞*JUMPING THE SHARK* 🗞
