Voter Rights Lose in Pennsylvania
prospect.org — This morning, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Judge Robert Simpson denied a request from four voting-rights groups to block the state's voter ID law. Over the phone, Penda Hair, executive director for the Advancement Project, was deflated. "It's a very sad day for democracy," she said. ... "To protect your right to vote you have to lose your right to vote in one important election. That's the only way I can read this."
