Gov. Perry vows to fight court's decision to deny Voter ID law

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding the U.S. District Court's ruling denying Texas' voter ID law:

"Chalk up another victory for fraud. Today, federal judges subverted the will of the people of Texas and undermined our effort to ensure fair and accurate elections. The Obama Administration's claim that it's a burden to present a photo ID to vote simply defies common sense. I will continue to work with Attorney General Abbott to fight for the same right that other states already have to protect their elections."

Thursday, a federal court ruled against a Texas law that would require voters to present photo IDs to election officials before being allowed to cast ballots in November. A three-judge panel in Washington ruled that the law imposes "strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor."
