oh brother

this is a shining example of why the legislature has no business changing nor tampering with louisiana's voting laws. the voting laws in general and absentee voting laws specificially are already adequate and have passed both federal court scrutiny and state court scrutiny.

tampering with them only invites this sort of political posturing and bickering. why sec'y of state al ater and the legislature are creating unnecessary work as well as expense for us taxpayers is beyond reasoning. if they would have just left the voting laws in place and did nothing then no one would have a reason to say anything.

tip: next time pay off the naacp beforehand.
