(December 27,2011) South Carolina Governor Haley’s response to the DOJ, on Facebook:
“The President and his bullish administration are fighting us every step of the way,” Haley wrote. “It is outrageous, and we plan to look at every possible option to get this clearly political decision overturned so we can protect the integrity of our electoral process and our 10th amendment rights.”
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF)- The Justice Department blocked the South Carolina Voter ID Law Friday and days later leaders for and against the law are reacting on the Grand Strand.
Governor Nikki Haley signed the law back in May and it was supposed to take effect in January. The Obama administration put a hold on the law, saying it promotes discrimination against minorities.
The law mandates that anyone who goes to cast a ballot show a government-issued photo ID along with their voter registration card.
