Voter ID blocked for Scott Walker recall

This is great news for the citizens of Wisconsin, but not so good news for Walker!!! Here we go!!!

Wisconsin’s new voter ID law won’t apply to the recall election against Gov. Scott Walker, according to two appeals court rulings this week.

An opinion released Thursday said there was “no realistic possibility” that the legal wrangling over the controversial law would be decided before the June 5 election, reports the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.

Although Walker and Republican legislators passed a law requiring photo identification at the voting booths, Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan temporarily blocked the law from taking effect while the court considered legal challenges from the NAACP and the immigrant rights group Voces de la Frontera.

A week later, another judge blocked the law after a separate challenge by the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin, saying it violated the state constitution.

Flanagan is only expected to rule after final briefs are filed in the case in mid-June, after the May 8 primary and June 5 general recall elections, reports the Journal Sentinel.
