Newspaper: A judge blows it

Glad to see The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review points out the idiotic ruling by a district justice who threw out the original corruption charges against former state Rep. Mike Veon and an aide.

As I said in an earlier post, this is what you get when you elect anybody off the street to be a district judge in Pennsylvania.

From the Tribune-Review:
A grossly misguided ruling by Dauphin County District Judge Joseph Solomon denied the public its right to judge if anyone in the BIG mess should be held accountable.

Judge Solomon's dismissal on May 21 of charges of theft, conflict of interest and conspiracy against Veon and Ms. Peretta-Rosepink was effectively grand jury nullification.
Attorney General Tom Corbett refiled the charges this week (and asked a real judge to handle the case.
