Breaking News: VICTORY! DOJ Drops Obama-Fueled Opposition on Texas Voter ID Law: The Department of Justice asked a federal court to dismiss the department’s earlier claim that the ID law was put into place in order to discriminate against minority voters. This claim was made by the Obama Administration. This law would require voters to show one of the seven forms of photo identification that has been approved by the state, among which, gun permits are acceptable, but college IDs are not.
