Wisconsin Judge enters temporary injunction against Republican attempt to suppress the vote

Nice to see some good news coming out of Wisconsin.  By way of background, the Wisconsin legislature, currently being run by a bunch of nightmare retro-fuck Republicans (but I repeat myself…) passed a horrendous “voter ID” bill designed to suppress the vote.

Judge Flanagan issued an order temporarily barring the implementation of the act.  Included in his findings are that the Act (surprise!) has a disproportionate effect on minorities, the indigent, and the elderly, and that “the scope of the impairment has been shown to be serious, extremely broad and largely needless.”  Again, what a surprise.
