Well, Iíd say the production value is high.



Damn shame credibility value is so low. Guess you havenít been paying attention to the inconvenient truth that voter ID laws actually increase voter turnout among minorities and low income people.



Quote:
Black voter turnout increased in Georgia and Indiana after voter ID laws passed. Georgia began implementing its law requiring one of six forms of voter ID in 2007. According to data from Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, the black vote increased by 42%, or 366,000 votes, in 2008 over 2004. The Latino vote grew by 140% or 25,000 votes in 2008, while the white vote increased by only 8% from four years earlier.


And you might want to go back and edit your production to include the disenfranchisement of the military and their families. Or would that be getting a little too close to the truth for your tastes?

LOL. Texas just lost it's case twice. Turns out it was placing undue burdens on the voters.

LOL, it was not an en banc court. LOL, the ruling from the panel was expected. LOL, the court rejected the social science method of classifying how many voters lack an ID from both sides, LOL, the fundamental of the case that Texas is arguing is larger than vote ID. What will go in front of the Supreme Court is if Section 5 can bar voter ID from Texas, then Section 5 is unconstitutional. Hopefully it will be ruled unconstitutional as it is. But, I am sure already know all of this, as you have already dissected the ruling.

That's Reuters. It's reporting the fact that:





Quote:


A federal court has ruled against a Texas law that would require voters to present photo IDs to election officials before being allowed to cast ballots in November.


A three-judge panel in Washington ruled Thursday that the law imposes "strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor" and noted that racial minorities in Texas are more likely to live in poverty.

Whatever your read, it doesn't change the plain old fact that Texas can't apply that law.

I read the court's entire ruling. They can't? What if they get an emergency injunction? How would that work out? Sorry, I am not reading something regarding a court ruling from he Huffington Post. Once again, you let other's make your opinions for you . Why don't you read the entire decision then apply your legal expertise for a carefully constructed answer?

Well they haven't gotten an emergency injunction. And I don't need a legally constructed answer to simply report the fact that the panel found that it was a law that discriminated and caused undue burden on a minority group and that Texas cannot apply it. I know that it really burns you that it doesn't stand but this nonsense you are engaging in isn't taking away from that fact. We'll see what comes next.

You are so misinformed about law. This was an expected decision on the way to the Supreme Court. If not, they would file immediately for an en banc hearing. They will not because they want it in front of the Supreme Court. Did you know that the last ruling on gay marriage, just a few weeks ago, ruled DOMA constitutional. Does that burn you as well?
