Penn Judge No Solomon

Some judges take the wrong message from the story of Solomon and the baby. They think that wisdom means every ruling has to give something to each side. Judge Robert Simpson of Pennsylvania is one such fool.

He ruled today that Keystone State poll watchers can still demand citizens "show their papers" before voting. However, if voters don't have their IDs with them they can still vote without hindrance.

So registered voters will be able to vote without having to carry some additional piece of paper. That's fine. But the ruling also gives thugs to right to harass and intimidate the poor, minorities, and elderly into showing a piece of paper they don't need. That's stupid boarding on evil.
