Say what? PA Voter-ID law upheld?
You really have to wonder just where Commonwealth Judge Robert Simpson has been living. How on earth could he let the new voter-ID law stand saying in essence that no one in Pennsylvania who wanted to vote would be affected by the government photo ID requirement? And this was after the pro-ID law side presented no evidence, none, that there had been any cases of voter impersonation fraud in the past.
I’m sitting here scratching my head trying to figure out Judge Simpson’s logic. Of course as my honey repeatedly tells me, logic is not really useful in trying to figure out human behavior. My problem is that it’s the way my own brain works – logically that is. I have also been told by others (not my honey, he’s smart enough to realize there may be consequences) that I can be infuriatingly sane.
Now the voter ID law goes to the PA Supreme Court. This is a court I’ve heard that now has six justices, three Democrats and three Republicans. Hmmm. Wonder how justice will work out there?
