Jesse Rhodes appears in NPR

Jesse Rhodes, Professor of Political Science quoted in NPR report on conservative legal challenges to the Voting Rights Act. "Conservative legal activist groups are trying out a variety of pretty radical claims that would have been beyond the pale 10, 15, 20 years ago," says Jesse Rhodes, who wrote Ballot Blocked: The Political Erosion of the Voting Rights Act. "But now that there's this very conservative majority, they think, 'Why not? Let's give it a shot.' And they're hoping that some of these sets of claims will stick." (NPR, 01/06/24)
