Judge Upholds North Carolina Photo ID Law

Why? Well, for one thing, no one could show they were actually harmed or unduly stopped from voting due to the law

(AP) Lawsuits challenging changes to North Carolina’s election law failed to show it hampered the ability of minority voters to exercise political power, a federal judge ruled Monday in dismissing the cases.

U.S. District Judge Thomas Schroeder ruled against the U.S. Justice Department, the North Carolina NAACP chapter and named voters. They sued alleging the law was passed to discriminate against poor and minority voters in violation of the Constitution and U.S. Voting Rights Act.

While North Carolina had a sordid history of freezing black voters out of the political process, the plaintiffs didn’t show that the law hampered the ability of minority voters to exercise electoral politics, Schroeder said.

Nice bit of editorializing, based on a short part of what the judge said, failing to mention that this occurred well over 50 years ago, and that the Democratic Party was in control during that time and implemented those policies. Rather like how the media, and Democrats, always forget to mention that it was the Democrats who implemented the sterilization of Blacks and the disabled

The plaintiffs “failed to show that such disparities will have materially adverse effects on the ability of minority voters to cast a ballot and effectively exercise the electoral franchise” as a result of the 2013 state law, Schroeder wrote. That argument was made more difficult after black voter turnout increased in 2014, he wrote.

Of course, the liberals bringing the suits state that they are not giving up, and that the suits will continue, because Liberals/Democrats apparently believe that Blacks and minorities are too stupid, incompetent, and poor to be able to obtain a proper photo ID, a photo ID that is needed for just about everything these days, it seems.

The NY Times is likewise vexed, noting all the talk from opponents of the law who think Blacks are too dumb, incompetent, or poor (they can get ID for free, BTW) to obtain the type of ID they need for so many other things, like driving, buying certain medicines, going to the doctor, taking a flight, etc.

(ABC11) “This ruling is a decisive victory for North Carolina over George Soros, Hillary Clinton and the Roy Cooper-backed out-of-state special interests who tried to overturn the state’s common sense voter ID law, in order to make it easier to cheat in our elections,” said NCGOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse. “Despite the scare tactics, misinformation and constant attacks from the radical left, the court threw out their false arguments and ruled that this common sense law is constitutional.”

One of the things the judge found is that the NC law comported with voting laws from all over the country. Perhaps Democrats could simply spend their time making sure that the few who do not have proper ID obtain one. They like sticking people on buses and bringing them to vote. Bring them to get their free ID.
