Court Rules Against WI Voter Suppression Law

With multiple Rethuglican-controlled State legislatures passing laws intended to suppress Democratic voter turnout, we're seeing some victories in the court system, to wit, a Wisconsin judge declared Wisconsin's "voter ID" law would place undue obstacles to voting. While the decision will be appealed, the ruling (along with two other undecided cases pending) almost certainly delays a final hearing by the Wisconsin Supreme Court until after the November elections.

It's a good day for democracy.
