Special session you say Vossy to pick at the carcass of democracy?
Not likely. Judge Adelson's statement clipped your Republicon wings on that work-around. He basically stated that little tweaks around the edges, which Vos und Valker have hinted at making to get VID compliant with a court ruling, would not address the basic constitutional problem of equal protection and that the higher number of minorities without IDs (not otherwise needing them!) or the necessary documents to get an ID could not be ignored. He said if there were an attempt to quickly pass something close to election time he'd hold hearings in a hurry and he'd block it if it still resulted in the same disproportional disenfranchisement, aka voter suppression, which of course is the whole point to the GOPsters effort in the first place.
So Vos und Valker, et al can press on with their Costly and Traitorous attempted Republicon Rape of Representative Democracy for Purely Partisan Political Purposes and appeal the decision to the 7th circuit court, but it'll never get resolved before next fall's election. Suck it Walker!
The good Judge also shot down the rationale used by Republicons to justify their Atrocity on Democracy; “Virtually no voter impersonation occurs in Wisconsin, and it is exceedingly unlikely that voter impersonation will become a problem in Wisconsin in the foreseeable future,”
And finally Judge Adelman citing the high costs of being prosecuted for voter fraud compared with the low benefits of casting one additional vote. said; “A person would have to be insane to commit voter-impersonation fraud,” Now where have I heard that before!?
