… Now Ohio has a Role Model to Follow [#Voter ID law]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 16th,2016

.. at least , now , Wisconsin has some finality in its Voter I.D. case .

.. the radical left would not give up . They appealed the adverse decision of the 7th Circuit to the U.S. Supreme Court . They were expecting [at the least] that they would get a hearing in front of the Supremes . To get that , that would require the votes of 4 justices . Well , they did not get it …

.. here is the photo of the order dismissing the radical ‘ s cert petition to the Supreme Court ….

Ws Voter ID case (USsc order dismissed)

.. [link] to the blog decision in the case ..

.. what it means is that Wisconsin is finally free [at last] to fully implement its long – contentious Voter I.D. law . It was passed several years ago , but has been tied up in court challenges ever since ..

… then there is Tony Kennedy . He literally is SCOTUS ‘ resident ” weather vane , ” that is the swing vote in may of the cases . he may well be a swing vote , but he is still nominally a conservative . One should try to remember that . So , in this case , he is a Yes vote ..

.. in arguments , Breyer was very leery about overriding the current precedent [Abood v Detroit Bd of Ed] . It does not mean that he will not do so . In recent cases , such as Knox v C.T.A , Breyer voted with the conservatives . It is possible , especially if he is given the majority opinion to write , that Breyer will do so again …
