Voter ID Law Upheld, But We're Not Done Yet

The long-awaited Commonwealth Court ruling on Pennsylvania's heavily debated Voter ID law came down today, upholding the legislation. But in the end, will that matter?

Most folks realized that this wouldn't be the end game. In fact, a story on includes this bit: "A petition to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is expected within days, if not hours. More legal briefs and courtroom arguments are expected. Others have been eyeing a parallel challenge in federal court."

Longtime Harrisburg journalist John Micek quotes the governor and secretary of state looking to move on despite the planned appeals.

They may forge ahead, but the issue is far from settled.
