Judge Knocks Down Pa. Voter Identification Law

A state judge in Pennsylvania is striking down the law requiring the state's voters to show photo identification at the polls.

The decision paves the way for an expected appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Republicans approved the law over the protests of Democrats.
