News sources report that the U.S. Supreme Court refused to force Ohio's Secretary of State to hand over the list of voter registrants with discrepancies in their forms. According to the television media, the most liberal associate justice was the one who was to receive the case. This is terribly frightening. How can they wink at the obvious and insist that the wrong person/entity filed the suit? How can they further erode confidence in the greatest test of honesty in our American system? We are not speaking of a few signatures; we are speaking of 200,000. That's TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND irregular registrations.
My trust in the system wavers just now. But think of this: the next president will have the power to recommend for appointment other justices. Do we want more of the same that we are getting through the Ohio debacle?
I think not.
