Just breaking on Fox News. Looks like PA will go Obama.
Well, there goes any chance of winning PA, folks...
119% Philly turnouts again.
Appeal is possible. The GOP had better get on the stick.
Odd ruling. The judge is allowing poll workers to ask for ID, they just can’t withhold a ballot for those not providing ID. This is going to cause a major cluster muck.
Just publicly demand a recount-win or lose.
Stand firm and say NO to “liberal fascism”
If you want on/off the PA Ping List, please freepmail me. Thanks!
Somehow I see this as the “ show down at the altar of Baal”...water being doused on the altar. God is going to bring us through DESPITE all these blockades with fire from heaven!
Counting on it!!
I’m reading elsewhere that he upheld portions of the law. He said that voters should be eligible for alternative state ID’s rather than just those issued by the Transportation dept.
I did hear something about the alternate IDs, but the giant loophole of not being able to withhold ballots makes cheating still an issue.
Seems to me that conservatives should now mount court challenges to every state law that requires use of photo identification. Since precedent now appears to have been set.
The fix was in on that one... it always was.
Any appeal?? You know, this is utter bull shiite...seems any attempt to eliminate voter fraud is stopped by Kangaroo judges.
The news that PA requires voter ID has been out there for a year now. Even with this injunction, I doubt that those ineligible to vote would want to chance getting into trouble. It’s been turned into an issue of racism and hammered home to minorities for months to tar and feather Republicans. A last minute change like this will probably not have much effect, IMO. Those who would commit fraud will probably still be intimidated.
Then why ask? Idle curiosity?
Virginia will be next!!!!!!!!!!
I live in PA, and I believe it’s all going to come down to voter turn out. Philly, Harrisburg, and York city are going to go overwhelmingly to Obama. The rest of the state will go to Romney — how heavily depends on how well the Repubs turn out the vote. The state party should be going door to door in “Romney areas” — and so far, all I’ve heard are crickets.
IF the judge’s ruling is as the radio indicates this morning, that ballots cannot be denied those without driver licenses BUT they are given Provisional ballots and their votes are not counted until the legitimacy of same are reviewed and validated, then it is a reasonable ruling. Nobody should, or can, be required to hold a driver license to vote... so long as they can prove their eligibility by some other real means (such as a passport or state-issued picture identification card as in most other states).
Having said that, I do not have the judge’s ruling in front of me and it could be a desperation measure by a BHusseinO hack. If anyone has the ruling, please let us know which way it is, THANKS!)
Meanwhile, everyone in PA please get out the vote to save America! We’re counting on you! Thanks!
Exactly - what's the point of asking for ID?
However, the injunction does say that this only applies to this next election - subsequent elections will require ID.
You got that right. This has to be one of the stupidest rulings I can imagine. What is the purpose of asking for ID if you can't use it to withhold ballots?
