State Appeals Court Rules Voter ID Constitutional

What is the most ironic part of this ruling is where it is from.  This is the District IV Court of Appeals — i.e. Madison and most of Western Wisconsin — not District II which is mostly Waukesha and the ring counties.

Liberals can’t even charge that our side went “judge shopping” for this decision.

A state appeals court says a law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls is constitutional.

Republicans passed a law in 2011 requiring voters to show photo identification, saying the mandate would help fight election fraud.

The League of Women Voters filed a lawsuit in Dane County Circuit Court in October 2011 challenging the law.

Judge Richard Niess ruled the law was unconstitutional in March 2012, saying it would abridge the right to vote.

The 4th District Court of Appeals reversed Niess on Thursday, saying the league failed to prove that the law is unconstitutional.

The league’s attorney, Lester Pines, had no immediate comment.

Man, that also has to hurt, seeing Lester Pines go down in defeat.  Nimrods like James Rowen thought the Left had a winner in him or something.

Me?  I just saw a long-time liberal hack and Jim Doyle’s personal attorney.

This is not the end of the legal fight.  There’s still the NAACP / Voces lawsuit, which frankly is unlikely to be upheld too from what I’m hearing and the one in federal court which has to overcome the legal precedent set by Crawford v. Marion County.

(Good luck with that last one…)

ADDENDUM:  Just to twist the knife, here are the following known-liberals on the 4th District Court of Appeals: Former Caucus Scandal Prosecutor / Former Dane Co. D.A. Brian Blanchard, Former state Rep. Gary Sherman (D-74th District) and some lady named Kloppenburg.
