Ohio voting law is back in action

A federal appeals court on Sunday put on hold a decision that suspended Ohio's identification requirements for absentee voting, meaning voters applying for the early ballots must continue giving proof of their ID. The ruling by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a request by State Attorney General Jim Petro to stay an order issued Thursday. That was when U.S. District Court Judge Algenon Marbley ruled on a lawsuit challenging Ohio's new law, which requires all voters to show proof of identification when casting a ballot.

Bad news for the RATs - they can't vote twice now. Not that long ago, Charlie Rangel was on O'Reilly saying that requiring that those wishing to vote should produce identification was a "burden".
