Texas voter ID law struck down

A unanimous three-judge panel at the U.S. Court of Appeals — including a George W. Bush appointee — struck down Texas’ discriminatory voter ID law today. You can read the opinion by clicking here.

According to Reuters, the judges said that  

“the evidence showed the law’s impact would ‘fall most heavily on the poor and that a disproportionately high percentage of African-Americans and Hispanics in Texas live in poverty.'”

Are you paying attention Thom Tillis?

    Stupid ruling. We need to proceed with our own voter ID law in NC. It just makes so much sense.

    They’ll all be gone soon and Republican efforts at voter suppression will be defeated. A great day for the citizens of this country.

    Pennsylvania State Representative Mike Turzan, a Republican, said that voter ID in Pennsylvania will allow Gov. Romney win the state of Pennsylvania. Voter suppression in Pennsylvania is the only way a Republican candidate running for the office of U.S. President can win.

    The premise for voter suppression is that there is rampant fraud. Again, show evidence of rampant voter fraud. Voter fraud exist only in the minds of those who want to suppress our rights.

    Hundreds of dead voters removed from voter rolls in Wake County http://www.raleighpublicrecord.org/news/2012/08/28/hearing-prompts-removal-of-hundreds-of-dead-voters/. due to the efforts of the Voter Integrity project. Bob Hall, Democracy NC (Soros funded) nowhere in sight. This is the kind of thing that he should be involved in, he is AWOL. All voters in NC should be concerned with vote fraud.

    I think I read this morning they found 30,000 dead people still on the voting rolls in NC. That’s a lot of Democratic votes and a huge potential for fraud !
