Austria’s Pistol-Packing, Immigrant Bashing Donald Trump Loses

Austia's far right candidate losesAustria narrowly averted what would have been one of the most dangerous electoral decisions since World War II by not choosing far-right presidential candidate Norbert Hofer. Instead, Green party candidate Alexander van der Bellen won the presidency by a razor-thin margin of 50.1 percent to Hofer’s 49.9 percent, and only after absentee postal votes were tallied on Monday.

Chief Justice John Roberts, who has been broadly critical of the high court's jurisprudence on race, wrote the majority opinion holding that Prosecutors "were motivated in substantial part by race" when deciding whom to strike from the jury panel in advance of the trial.

SCOTUSThe Supreme Court on Monday left in place a lower court's ruling that Virginia's Republican-led legislature unlawfully considered race when drawing U.S. congressional districts by packing black voters into one of them in a move opponents said diluted black electoral clout.
