Judge Strikes Down Ohio GOP's Attempt To Criminalize Voter Registration Drives
The judge pointed out that the GOP's attempt to make it illegal for Democrats to hold voter registration drives was, ah, a touch unconstitutional:
A federal judge threw out new state rules governing voter-registration drives yesterday, saying they appear to violate the First Amendment and hurt efforts to sign up new voters. U.S. District Judge Kathleen O'Malley issued an order from the bench halting enforcement of the registration rules. She said she planned to issue a detailed written order next week.I expect that even now, Freepers and the folks at other right-wing sites will be scouring her record to see if she's a chainsmoking vegan Wiccan or something.
