    Handel blasts move to halt voter ID for July 15

    The Georgia Democratic Party late Thursday asked the courts for a temporary order to stop the state from requiring photo identification of potential voters in the July 15 primary. The secretary of state blasted the move as a legal maneuver intended to disrupt voting, and noted that advance voting will get under way Monday and a photo ID will be required.

    The state Democratic Party had filed a new lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Georgia's voter ID law more than a month ago. With its latest request, the party is asking the court to step in now, before the suit has had its first hearing or any depositions taken, because an election is little more than a week off. Attorney Emmet Bondurant said people who are refused a ballot because they do not have the required identification would suffer "irreparable harm." "The idea is to get an injunction that will prevent the state from enforcing the voter ID act," said Bondurant, one of the attorneys representing the Democratic Party in the suit.

    "I am truly dismayed by this latest legal maneuver on the part of those opposed to Georgia's common-sense photo ID law," said Secretary of State Karen Handel, a Republican. "Given the timing of the Democratic Party's motion, this is clearly nothing more than an attempt to create confusion and disrupt the July 15 primary and the November general election. The Democratic Party seems to be more concerned with disrupting the elections process than with the security of the process."

    Handel vowed her office will continue to fight attempts to dismantle the law.

    Gotta show ID for liquor or ciggies, but as far as something as important as voting, nope.

    Democrats just aren't use to the dead and illegal aliens not casting their vote each year.
