ruling today on the Pistolvania voter ID law, my reservations about him have been confirmed. (*You need a lot of money to run for Judge in Pistolvania*)
Robert Simpson used to be a democrat, but now he is a republican. (*You need a lot of money to run for Judge in Pistolvania*) Mitt Romney should start every speech from here until November by thanking Robert Simpson. Judge Simpson's ruling today (*You need a lot of money to run for Judge in Pistolvania*) might have just guaranteed Mitt Romney the 2012 election for president.
Judge Simpson ruled today that the republican voter ID law in Pistolvania could be implemented for election day. (*You need a lot of money to run for Judge in Pistolvania*) He said that the plaintiffs did not meet the burden of proving that the law violated the state's constitution. Hmmm, I thought that there was a stricter scrutiny when it comes to voting rights here in America? "The right to vote is preservative of other basic civil and political rights". Even following the less strict scrutiny of a fundamental right as a opposed to being in a suspect class, this Pennsylvania law should have been tossed out. -Especially since the state said that they had no reason to implement it in the first place because they could not document any instances of voter fraud.- (*You need a lot of money to run for Judge in Pistolvania*)
“Petitioners did not establish . . . that disenfranchisement was immediate or inevitable,” Simpson wrote, adding, “I was convinced that Act 18 will be implemented by Commonwealth agencies in a nonpartisan, evenhanded manner.”
"Nonpartisan", Judge? Tell that to Honest Mike Turzai, the republican house majority leader in our fine state. Mr. Turzai is pretty sure the law is "partisan". In fact, he is bragging about it.
"Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.”
Well, not quite "done" Mike, but you are close.
Republicans have been outraged that Joe Biden said that republicans want us "back in chains". Well folks, I have some news for you; Joe Biden might have been right.
