Pennsylvania Voter ID Law Struck Down

Pennsylvania

Here’s the latest proof of the futility of trying to reform the system:

“In a strongly worded decision, a Pennsylvania state judge on Friday struck down Pennsylvania’s 2012 law requiring voters to produce a state-approved photo ID at the polls, setting up a potential Supreme Court confrontation that could have implications for other such laws across the country.

The judge, Bernard L. McGinley of Commonwealth Court, ruled that the law hampered the ability of hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians to cast their ballots, falling most heavily on elderly, disabled and low-income residents, and that the state’s reasons for the law — that it was needed to combat voter fraud — was unsupported by the facts. …”

    It really does seem ethnic politics, pure and simple. Why do people like David Duke not discuss this while professing to care about “white culture.”

    Pittsburgh where the guy went after John Carroll, is a real mess, too— it’s “claim to fame” is “reinventing” itself after the steel deindustrialization, as a “research triangle park” of the north, a R&D-university-medical-psychiatric complex centered in the Oakland neighborhood. It really doesn’t get more centralized-fascist-slash-Stalin-esque than that area and its schools, imo. The area is a “model of the future” in that regard, similar to what was attempted in Cleveland (where the medical centers like Cleveland Clinic were to absorb deindustrialization), or Research Park (which is a little different, not strictly medical) in NC.

    What a world.

  2. We’re really supposed to accept that this person’s decision was based on his care for “the elderly” who do not have ID’s. What a joke!

  3. The system IS the problem, which is what so many conservatives fail to see. They think that voting for some republican traitor-of-the-month will fix it, but it won’t. Hopefully, after Rand Paul is destroyed by ethnic block voting for Hillary in 2016, this cult of thought will be extinguished. A new system needs to be created, a system biased towards our people and goals.

  4. My comment here on Pennsylvania politics related to the ruling just disappeared. I failed to keep a copy because it was directly on topic, didn’t include any ‘hobby horse riding’ on religion nor reference other commenters. So I assume that this one was deleted by mistake. Oh well.

  5. McGinley is an Irish Roman Catholic:

    Bernard L. McGinley, son of John R. McGinley, Sr. and Marie Rooney McGinley, was born January 7, 1946, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

    He attended Central Catholic High School and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree from John Carroll University in Ohio in 1967, having attended Loyola University of Rome for the school year 1965-66. In 1970 he received his Juris Doctor Degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.

  6. McGinley may nominally be a Catholic, but his actions show he’s a member of the interdenominal Church of Liberalism.

  7. “What a world.”

    The Raleigh-Durham area is home to chemical, banking, and pharmaceutical companies in addition to having a bunch of universities and colleges. It has fuck all to do with Pittsburgh or with Pennsylvania voting laws.

    You really are an idiot Dixiegirl if you think that folks in NC would prefer to go back to exclusively growing tobacco, feeding chickens, and slopping pigs.

  8. Re: Reynauld

    I’ve deleted dozens of comments from Mosin, Earl, Rudel and others for the sole purpose of weeding out the endless theological fighting in the comment section. It’s a major eyesore on this website and detracts from the discussions here.
