Kansas court upholds grandfather clause on rational basis review.

Next up, literacy tests, poll taxes, lynching?

I forget the name of the 1915 grandfather clause case. Guinn v United States?
I don't think it was US v Classic (1940).
The Texas voter ID litigation seems like a continuation of the white primary cases,
Nixon v Herndon, Nixon v Condon, etc. I'm a little rusty on that history.
Yes, Guinn v. United States, 238 U.S. 347 (1915).

It seemed odd the court made no mention of Guinn.
