Ryan P. Haygood, director of LDF's Political Participation Group, appeared on Hardball today to discuss the Supreme Court decision in Shelby County, Alabama v.

Mr. Haygood critiqued the Court's ruling, and called upon Congress to fill the gap in voting rights protection created by today's decision.
