PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — Lenny McAllister, Republican strategist and notable commentator, is responding to news of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court voter ID law ruling, nearly a week after standing with voter advocates.
McAllister stood on the steps of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court last Thursday, saying that the law was being implemented hastily and was not in the best interest of voters. Today the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that the law be vacated.
“As I said while standing with the NAACP on Thursday, I believe in voter validation. However, I believe that all voter validation efforts must protect both the citizen’s right to vote and the process of the vote simultaneously,” said McAllister.
“Pennsylvania’s law in its current form overreaches its intended goal by way of flawed legislation and implementation. I welcome future efforts that will encapsulate the need and insightful implementation of voter validation efforts moving onward,” Lenny added.
