Judge halts Pa.'s tough new voter ID requirement

By MARC LEVY | Associated Press – 25 mins ago

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.

Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson said in his ruling that he was concerned by the state's stumbling efforts to create a photo ID that is easily accessible to voters and that he could not rely on the assurances of government officials at this late date that every voter would be able to get a valid ID.

If it stands, it is good news for Obama's chances in Pennsylvania, one of the nation's biggest electoral college prizes, unless Republicans and the tea party groups that backed the law find a way to use it to motivate their supporters and possibly independents.

The corruption in this administration is so outrageous and in your face now that it defies belief. :wtf: This judge has no business presiding over any court of law, especially if he's this stupid. No, it's corruption plain and simple.

The modern definition of ‘racist’ is someone who’s winning an argument with a liberal.
