As many predicted, voting rights legislation has again been defeated in the U.S. Senate. Despite the recent push by President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for Congress to finally pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, the legislation appears hopelessly stalled. As the New York Times reported, on Wednesday night, the Senate rejected a measure to change filibuster rules, which would have been necessary to pass voting rights legislation over Republican opposition.
