MADISON, Wis. — A member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court's conservative majority said Tuesday she's troubled by the state's voter photo ID requirements, saying it's not fair that people who lack identification may have to pay for supporting documents to obtain it.
Well now, if only Psycho-Judge David Prosser could hear Justice Patience Roggensack, the conservative member of the court make that observation, then maybe we can see
the voter ID law pushed by the koch brothers and company end in defeat.
But I`m not counting on Psycho-Judge Prosser mind you.
The lawsuits face an uphill fight given the court's ideological makeup. Surprisingly, though, Justice Patience Roggensack said the provisions were troubling because people who lack acceptable IDs for voting would have to pay for copies of supporting documents, such as birth certificates, to get them.Her observation is a no-brainer and has been the central point of argument since the beginning by poor voting folks who have argued the same point. Republicans argument that ID laws are needed to protect against fraud and shit, you know?
The photo identification law has been a bitter bone of contention since GOP lawmakers put it into place in 2011. Republicans argue the measure will help fight voter fraud; Democrats counter widespread fraud doesn't exist in Wisconsin and the requirement will keep poor people, immigrants and senior citizens from voting.
