At the time Pennsylvania passed its repressive voter ID law, Republican House Majority Leader Mike Turzai was blunt about its intent, proudly proclaiming at a State Republican Committee meeting that the law was "gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania."
Well, maybe not. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court today ordered a lower court to reconsider its earlier decision upholding the law, instructing it to consider whether the state is actually capable of getting voters the photo IDs the law prescribes.
Not sure yet exactly what this means for November, but at least there's hope that this blatant attempt at voter suppression might be squelched.
