Bum lottery, court composition, gives ID a win
The full Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals splits 50-50 on whether to hold a full hearing on Wisconsin voter ID, so without a majority, the first 3-0 ruling in favor of ID is affirmed.
The 50-50 split followed the party of the judges' appointing President - - three appointed by Democratic Presidents voted for a hearing, joining two GOP-appointed judges; five other GOP-based appointees voted not to have a hearing.
What a mess.
I hope there are resources for an appeal to the US Supreme Court, as our election process here right now is somewhere between chaotic and rigged.
Judge Posner voting for a rehearing means a lot -- he is more respected than the other nine 7th Circuit judges combined, and would usually be considered a conservative.
Judge Sykes should have recused herself. And the rest of the "no rehearing" side should have gotten a clue, or a lick of common sense. This will come back to bite them.
The "process" as you so generously call it, is rigged to make it look like chaos.
