Arkansas judge rules voter ID law unconstitutional | Reuters

An Arkansas judge ruled unconstitutional for the second time in about a week a new law requiring voters to show a photo ID, but said on Friday there was not enough time to prevent officials from applying the law at primary elections this month.

Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Tim Fox said he was staying his order because to do otherwise would create “turmoil” in thousands of precincts. Last week, he said the law was “void and unenforceable.”

Prediction:  He will be overruled.  Eventually.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. For what it’s worth, Fox is being protected by the good ol’ boy network: He’s running for reelection and has a challenger. Had, that is. The challenger was disqualified from eligibility because her law license had been briefly suspended a few years ago for failure to pay her license fee to the state. Stupid and careless, but common. So common, in fact, that Judge Fox’s license was recently suspended for the same thing. Oddly, however, Fox was not disqualified to seek reelection.
