Judge Halts PA Voter ID Law Until After Election

Posted by on Oct 02, 2012 at 10:29 am

Sure, why enforce the law now to prevent voter fraud. Instead, let’s allow the Democrats to steal enough votes, then they’ll get around to enforcing it.

A judge postponed Pennsylvania‘s controversial voter identification requirement on Tuesday, ordering the state not to enforce it in this year’s presidential election.

It’s only controversial among the 22% who do not support voter identification. Well, and the media, who always make sure to claim it’s controversial.

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. The law could go into full effect next year, under Simpson’s ruling.

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.

You need ID to do pretty much anything in this country, other than to vote in Democrat strongholds. It’s all quite obvious why they fight this tooth and nail, despite 78% of the public supporting the law. H/T Ben.
Update: To clarify:

A Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court judge has ruled that the state’s controversial new voter ID law will stand, but voters without a valid picture ID card will still be able to cast their vote and have it counted this November.Judge Robert Simpson has effectively decided to postpone part of the law.   Following his ruling, voters will still be asked for a valid voter ID at the poll.  But if they don’t have it, they will still be able to cast their vote in the usual manner.

So what’s the point in having a law if it’s ignored?

    The good news? He refused to outlaw the black panthers threatening people at PA voting sites. So we at least have that.
