Pennsylvania voter-ID law put on hold

Another voter-ID law has been blocked. This time it was in Pennsylvania, where a state judge said the law could not go into effect before the November election. Opponents of the law had argued that it was deliberately aimed at disadvantaging minorities, and they cited a top GOP state lawmaker who boasted that the law “is going to allow Gov. Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania.” Last month, a federal court panel struck down a voter-ID law in Texas, and a state court blocked Wisconsin’s law. South Carolina’s voter-ID law is still tied up in federal court.
