5-1-14 voter id ruling-reaction

The Fond du Lac County Clerk  says she is not surprised by a federal judge’s ruling striking down the state’s voter ID law.  Clerk Lisa  Freiberg says she attended part of the hearing in judge Adelman’s courtroom and found it striking that no evidence of voter impersonation was presented by the state.  Freiberg says municipal clerks who testified at that hearing also admitted that obtaining a  birth certificate or driver’s license could be difficult for some people.  "They honestly had to answer that in some instances yes it is very difficult,"  Freiberg told AM 1170 WFDL's Between the Lines program.  "Until this came to light I always thought it was easy to get your Wisconsin ID card or driver's license."  Wiconsin League of Women Voters director Andrea Kaminski says she is thrilled and says the ruling is a victory for state of Wisconsin voters.  Kaminski says  "the real fraud is saying that’s what this law is about."
