The new Pennsylvania voter I. D. law, designed to reduce votes for President Obama, has been struck down for this election cycle.
This is final for the 2012 election, no more appeals. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court had previously told the Commonwealth Court judge that he must stop the law unless he found that it wouldn’t disenfranchise people, and today he said that he couldn’t make that finding.
President Obama has a solid lead in Pennsylvania polls, and this should ensure that those who want to vote for him (and other Democratic candidates) will be able to do so.
This is a big win for Democrats, but even more, it’s a big victory for our democracy.
Let those mean spirited disenfranchising bastards rot in hell.
