Another Error in Judge Easterbrook’s WI Voter ID Opinion

Following up on this post, a reader notes that Judge Easterbrook also writes in his opinion today:

“The Justices observed that a commission chaired by former President Carter had recommended the use of photo ID to verify a person’s entitlement to vote. Commission on Federal Election Reform, Building Confidence in U.S. Elections 18 (2002).”

First of all, he means the Carter-Baker Commission of 2005 I assume [and not the 2002 Carter-Ford report].  And as has been discussed by you and others, [it] is a complete mischaracterization [of the Carter-Baker report].

Too bad Judge Easterbrook’s opinion is not peer reviewed. Maybe that would have made it error free.
