Even Conservative Justices Admit Voter ID Law Too Close To Election To Implement

October 9, 2014

My fellow citizens this is great news tonight.  The Supreme Court on Thursday stopped officials in Wisconsin from requiring voters from needing to provide photo identification before casting their ballots in the coming election.

Even conservative justices had to admit the point many Democrats in this state were making.

Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., joined in dissent by Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, would have allowed the law to be enforced for fairly technical legal reasons, but they conceded that “there is a colorable basis for the Court’s decision due to the proximity of the upcoming general election.”
