    Judge halts Pa.'s tough new voter ID requirement

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A judge on Tuesday blocked Pennsylvania's divisive voter identification requirement from going into effect on Election Day, delivering a hard-fought victory to Democrats who said it was a ploy to defeat President Barack Obama and other opponents who said it would prevent the elderly and minorities from voting.

    The decision by Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson on the law requiring each voter to show a valid photo ID could be appealed to the state Supreme Court.

    However, Simpson based his decision on guidelines given to him days ago by the high court justices, and it could easily be the final word on the law just five weeks before the Nov. 6 election.

    Simpson ordered the state not to enforce the photo ID requirement in this year's presidential election but will allow it to go into full effect next year.

    As long as it goes into effect next year, I am fine with that. I do, however, raise an eyebrow on the Judge's decision. If he is ok with it going into effect next year, that means he's ok with the legality of it. If so, why the delay?
  6. lol. god must be pissed at republicans. that was their only hope to win pennsylvania.
  7. "A Pennsylvania judge on Tuesday delayed full implementation of a highly contested state law requiring strict photographic identification to vote in next month’s election, saying that the authorities had not done enough to ensure that potential voters had access to the new documents."

    NY Times today.
  8. Democrats fighting hard to protect minority rights.
    Except they are doing nothing in states that are not close in this election.

    Here's the game.
    Community organizers do noting to help the minorities to get ID's. This forces minorities to get raped on bank fees, travel, many other services.

    But the racist democrats will fight to the Supreme Court to let you vote FOR THEM with no ID......but they will only fight if you are in a close state.
