Texas still disfranchisizing voters

From Democracy Now:

Obama Administration Blocks Texas Voter ID Law

In election news, the Justice Department’s civil rights division has blocked Texas from enforcing a new law requiring voters to present photo identification after ruling that the law would discriminate against Latino voters. The move follows a similar decision late last year to block another voter ID law in South Carolina. Meanwhile, a Wisconsin judge has declared a state law requiring people to show photo ID at the polls to be unconstitutional.
