Wisconsin judge rejects voter ID law
See this story. This federal judge decided that WI's new voter ID law is unconstitutional because required forms of ID are a burden to low-income people and minorities. They are also unlikely to have the documents necessary for such ID and such restrictions violate equal protection. The judge further ruled that the rationale of voter fraud justifying the law was itself a fraud. Hopefully this will set a legal precedent for other such regressive legislative proposals of the same ilk.
