Louse Republicans Still Looking For Ways to Suppress the Vote

Really? One independent study found that the number of people lacking the proper ID may be more than 1 million. PennDOT placed the number at more than 750,000. The Philadelphia Inquirer interviewed dozens of people who went to PennDOT and found the process confusing, with long waits, and employees ill-informed on the requirements of the voter ID law.

In his ruling, Simpson wrote: “Petitioners did not establish that greater injury will occur from refusing to grant the injunction than granting it. This is because the process of implementation in general, and of public outreach and education in particular, is much harder to start, or restart, than it is to stop.”

In other words, the “right” of the bureaucracy to go ahead with a flawed, unnecessary law outweighs the rights of the people who might fall through the cracks.

The plaintiffs said they would immediately appeal to the state Supreme Court. That court is now split, 3-3, between Republicans and Democrats, but that shouldn’t matter.

A bad law is a bad law is a bad law. It should be tossed.
