A Pennsylvania judge is putting a halt to the state's voter identification law, ordering today that it not be enforced for the presidential election just five weeks away.
The ruling by Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson could be appealed to the state's Supreme Court. Simpson's ruling says the law -- requiring each voter to show a valid photo ID -- would be fully implemented next year.
Simpson said during hearings last week that he was considering invalidating a part of the six-month-old llaw -- considered one of the toughest in the nation -- for the Nov. 6 election."Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken
