    WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal court on Thursday rejected aTexas 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 unanimously ruled that the law imposes "strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor" and noted that racial minorities in Texas are more likely to live in poverty.

    The decision involves an increasingly contentious political issue: a push, largely by Republican-controlled legislatures and governors' offices, to impose strict identification requirements on voters.

    The courts should do the same in Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio where Republicans believe they can reduce Obama voters by employing this ploy.

    Kwa hilo mahakama imetenda haki kwa wanyonge. Hawa tea baggers wanataka kuzuia watu hata kupiga kura? Utamtakaje mtu aonyeshe kitambulisho ndipo apige kura kwenye nchi ambayo hakuna sheria inayowataka wananchi wote kuwa na vipande (vitambulisho)?
    Hawa tea baggers wanafiki sana. Wanalalamika kuwa serikali inawaingilia kwenye himaya zao, wakati wao wanatengeneza sheria za kuzuia watu wasitumie haki yao ya kidemokrasia ya kupiga kura?
