Pennsylvania Judge Blocks Voter Suppression Law

Judge Robert Simpson of Pennsylvania has blocked a key opponent of the state voter ID law that lawmakers enacted and was signed by Republican Gov. Tom Corbett. This is a huge victory for all voters, especially Democratic voters, who would have been disenfranchised by this fake voter fraud scare from the Republican Party.

The Judge ruled that the state did not have enough time to process all the ID cards that would have to be made in time for this year’s election. He was also unhappy with the progress that had been made since the issuing of the law. This is a huge blow to the GOP, who was hoping to have a chance at winning Pennsylvania if their voter suppression tactics were implemented.

Pennsylvania Republican Mike Turzai, who is the House Majority Leader, assured the Republican State Committee that “voter ID will allow Romney to win Pennsylvania.” He confirmed to the GOP that these unfair voter suppression laws would greatly benefit them politically.

Republican governors all over the U.S. are trying to get voter suppression laws passed to disenfranchise millions of voters. These suppression tactics remind many of the Poll-Taxes that were put in place during segregation in the 50’s and 60’s. Very soon now the Supreme Court of the United States has to rule on these unfair laws that target the poor, the elderly, and students.

The GOP cannot convince voters of their vision, so they will stop at nothing to disenfranchise people and try to steal elections. They sense that their reign of terror will be stopped in the near future. Many people don’t have a lot in this world, but they must never be stripped of their voting rights.
