Pennsylvania Voter ID Law Upheld
Judge Robert Simpson in Commonwealth Court upheld Pennsylvania’s Voter ID law. Every Committee person in the state let out a collective groan at the amount of chaos that may be kicked up on election day.
Although this is the right step to take in wake of massive voter fraud reported by Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt. , if the DOJ does not block this law, the implementation will be rocky. Yet it will be worth the effort for fairer elections for all in Pennsylvania.
