In Step Towards Justice, Court Rules Texas Voter ID Law 'Discriminatory'

Sarah Lazare, staff writer

I can see Ted Cruz on the campaign trail... "I'd rather deny a million Americans the right to vote rather than allowing one illegal vote to be counted!"

"One step forward to step backwards, down in a Babylon"

I fear in the next week I will read an article about this ruling being overturned.. Fingers crossed!
