HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) A judge on Tuesday blocked Pennsylvania's divisive voter identification requirement from going into effect on Election Day, delivering a hard-fought victory to Democrats who said it was a ploy to defeat President Barack Obama and other opponents who said it would prevent the elderly and minorities from voting.
Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson said in his ruling that he was concerned by the state's stumbling efforts to create a photo ID that is easily accessible to voters and that he could not rely on the assurances of government officials at this late date that every voter would be able to get a valid ID.
If it stands, it is good news for Obama's chances in Pennsylvania, one of the nation's biggest electoral college prizes, unless Republicans and the tea party groups that backed the law find a way to use it to motivate their supporters and possibly independents

'Democrats argue it is a ploy to defeat Obama, while others say it would prevent the elderly and minorities from voting.'
Love the hyperbolic language making the limpwrists in the Democrat party seem tough...”Hard fought victory” and Tough voter law. I wonder if election night Yahoo will have taglines like Ebullient Demi-God Barak Obama refuses to concede the questionable election results..saysHe will continue to fight for the middle class by standing up to election fraud. . Think I am kidding, he will not leave the stage quietly, the MSM will not allow him either, they have tied their wagon to him.
the will of the people usurped by one man...when is this C&^p going to stop
Has anyone else seen Chuck Woolery’s video on Voter ID at the Blaze? It’s a howl...
It must be so “tough” to show ID when minorities want to buy beer or cigarettes.
Give me a break.
If it stands, it is good news for Obama’s chances in Pennsylvania, one of the nation’s biggest electoral college prizes, unless Republicans and the tea party groups that backed the law find a way to use it to motivate their supporters and possibly independents
Soooo...not having ID requirements benefits Obama. Got that?
stronger, much stronger action is justified.......
i find it fascinating that judicial activism is criticized in this case but would have been lauded had Chief Justice Roberts ruled against O’care; a law, however flawed, was passed by the people’s elected representatives..
