Holder to Challenge Wisconsin's Photo ID law

by Jerry Bader

Clearly, Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, assuming they hold onto both houses and the governor's mansion, need to fix the photo ID problem. Indiana has passed a photo ID law that has passed Supreme Court muster. Wisconsin needs to come up with a law patterned after that law. Yes, it opponents will still go through the motions of challenging it, but it'll be a much different matter when they know their challenge will fail.

Holder and others who call this voter suppression use to infuriate me; now they're just annoying. Everybody knows what this is really about, and that's protecting the integrity of the vote. Here's hoping Republicans get the chance after January to do this right.
