  •  Can Mr. Turzai be called to testify? (12+ / 0-)

    Or at least have this video introduced as evidence?  Because if the state stipulates to no in-person voter fraud than what can this guy be talking about other than it's keeping registered and eligible voters away for only political gain.  

    Before this new stipulation, I thought he could have always went back to "I was talking about eliminating massive voter fraud as reason why Obama won't win now", but with the state admitting there is no voter fraud they know of, let alone wide spread voter fraud that would be necessary to flip an election it means the GOP did this for purely political reasons and can't even deny they didn't.  

    Now in saying that, it doesn't mean the judge will block the law.  I have to believe that in stipulating what the State did they're just playing lawyer games and was done to strengthen their eventual defense.

    •  Mr. Turzai slipped up and told the truth about (5+ / 0-)

      the motives of the PA GOP.  Whoops!  It's really a shame when that happens, isn't it?  But, you can't put those feathers back in the pillow once they've escaped.  Too bad, so sad.  

      His statement alone, in the face of no voter fraud, should in itself invalidate the law.

      •  It brings the issue of standing into play.. (0+ / 0-)

        or so it would seem, at least. In civil or tort law, a plaintiff often has to show some harm has resulted from the law before litigation may proceed. Constitutional law may be a different situation, though..

    •  Eventual defense? (0+ / 0-)

      What would that be? I know, I know to keep the colored and brown folk from voting. We should be so lucky as to have them assert this. I am getting the sense that the states legal team is not exactly on board with this. The attorney general is a separate official elected state wide in Pennsylvania. He or she may not be as stupid as the governor or legislature. What folks have to remember is the "Appalachia" between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
