ACLU feels "vindicated" by judges decision to strike down Voter ID law

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- A spokesman for the American Civil Liberties Union says his group is "ecstatic" about the decision of a federal judge in Milwaukee to strike down Wisconsin's voter identification law.

U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman said in his Tuesday decision the law, which requires voters to show a state-issued photo ID to vote, unfairly burdens poor and minority voters.

The ACLU was among the groups and individuals suing to overturn the law.

ACLU spokesman Dale Ho said Judge Adelman fairly interpreted the evidence and his organization feels "vindicated" by the decision.
