MO Appeals Ruling That Blocked Part Of Voter ID Law Due To 'Mass Confusion'

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri’s top election official on Thursday said the state is appealing a judge’s ruling that blocked enforcement of parts of a voter photo identification law, adding that the ruling is causing “mass confusion” as the marquee Missouri U.S. Senate election approaches.

Republican Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft in a statement said the state attorney general has appealed the ruling and asked it to be put on hold as that process plays out.

At issue is Senior Cole County Circuit Judge Richard Callahan’s recent ruling striking down a requirement that a voter lacking a valid photo ID must sign a sworn statement and present some other form of identification in order to cast a regular ballot. Callahan also blocked the state from advertising that a photo ID is required to vote.

Ashcroft said there’s confusion because Callahan’s ruling “directs the STATE not to use the statement.” But Ashcroft said it’s local election authorities who would have been responsible for requesting voters without proper photo identification to sign an affidavit, “so it is not clear if they are bound by the judge’s decision.”

1. Just when we had hoped we wouldn't be hearing from an Ashcroft again.



A whole new Ashcroft, ready to go, bless his heart.



Jay's father, John Ashcroft, George W. Bush's Secretary of State, as he sings his
chartbuster, "Let the Eagle Soar!"



Same song, updated imagery.
