The war on voting rights in Wisconsin is temporarily put on hold?

Governor Scott Walker and his Republican buddies in the state legislature passed a radical voter ID law last year that could disenfranchise tens of thousands of eligible voters in the Badger state. Recognizing that – Dane County Judge David Flanagan blocked the law from going into effect – calling it “extremely broad and largely needless.”

Judge Flanagan went on to say that, “irreparable harm is likely to occur in the absence of an injunction.” Republicans in the state are outraged – and are calling for an investigation into Judge Flanagan after the ruling. That’s because they know the only way Governor Walker keeps his jobs during an upcoming recall election – is to make sure angry Wisconsinites can’t vote.
