MILWAUKEE — A spokesman for the American Civil Liberties Union says his group is "ecstatic" that a federal judge in Milwaukee has struck down Wisconsin's voter Identification law.

U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman said in his Tuesday decision that the law requiring voters to show a state-issued photo ID at the polls unfairly burdens poor and minority voters.

The ACLU was among the groups and individuals who sued to have the law overturned.

ACLU spokesman Dale Ho says Adelman fairly interpreted the evidence and his organization feels "vindicated" by the judge's decision.
