Georgia Voter ID Law Tossed

Georgia, whose Republican-controlled legislature sadly continues to prove the relevance of the Voting Rights Act, had passed a law requiring a photo ID for every voter starting in the state's August primary.

Sounds almost reasonable until you consider that huge numbers of African American and low-income voters in Georgia lack such identification, and that the law would essentially act as a Democrat disenfranchisement act.

For the second time in recent months, a Federal judge has ruled such ID restrictions unconstitutional.
