A Dane County Judge on Tuesday granted a temporary injunction that bars the enforcement of the state photo ID law at polling places during the general election on April 3.
Circuit Judge David Flanagan said that the Milwaukee Branch of the NAACP and Voces de la Frontera had demonstrated that their lawsuit against Gov. Scott Walker and the state Government Accountability Board would probably succeed on its merits and had demonstrated the likelihood of irreparable harm if the photo ID law is allowed to stand.
Flanagan ordered Walker and the GAB to "cease immediately any effort to enforce or implement the photo identification requirements" of the law, pending a trial on a permanent injunction scheduled before him on April 16.
"If no injunction is issued, a clearly improper impairment of a most vital element of our society will occur," Flanagan wrote. "The duty of the court is clear. The case has been made. Irreparable harm is likely to occur in the absence of an injunction."
It eliminates Repeat Offenders.
One wonders what the irreparable harm might be.
This doofus “judge” needs to make it illegal for ANYONE to ever ask for a photo ID for ANYTHING! “Judgey” must be a ‘RAT and is worried about the ‘RATS’ chances in the upcoming elections. He’s just trying to keep voter fraud alive for his massas down at the DNC.
Another judge purchased by the Left!
Judge Flanagan’s seat is one of those up for a vote on April 3.
Tyrant judge ping!
The Communists couldn't cheat. We can't have THAT.
Yeah, irreparable harm. Photo ID would mean that only live voters could vote, and only one time each! That's SO unfair to blacks and hispanics.
Not a word about the unfairness of the dead and multiple voters canceling out our votes...
For anyone wondering, the recalls are not included in the election April 3.
well this is Dane County aka Madistan..
This is just SICK. I can’t stand what is happening in my great state. These #%)(#*&)$(* will NOT stop us from using Voter ID. We need to dump these radical lefty judges.
Our state and the country is full of them, hence Kagan, SEWToMyEar, etc.
Next time I buy a bottle of wine at a local Wisconsin Grocery store I’ll tell them to take a hike. See where THAT get’s you.
How can those of us who work for a living keep up with these attacks?
How does a county judge get that kind of power?
I can’t go to the Dr. without showing 2 photo ID’s, can’t get a prescription filled without one, can’t get on a plane without one,can’t go to the hospital without one,can’t get a bank account without one,can’t cash a check without one, but you can do the most important thing in this country without one, VOTE. What the HELL is going on in this country, WAKE UP AMERICA, stand up and fight.
Are they unfamiliar with the term "conflict of interests" in WI? Go to the state supreme court to have the injunction lifted.
Outrageous. I have lived here more than 25 years, and this law has been passed by the legislature and by the people in a referendum several times during that period, only to be vetoed by a Dem Governor. I work at the polls and my poll was 100% co-operative and grateful for the voter ID finally becoming law.
Wisconsin Voter ID Ping
FReep Mail want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Once more, a black-robed tyrant exercising his right to force his laws on the right of people to determine their own laws. Nothing but corruption setting on a bench.
