The Pennsylvania Problem (Brought To You By The US Supreme Court) (VL349) Virtual Legality

    • Leisure

In a trying year, the upcoming US Elections present even more opportunities for fracture and frustration, opportunities made all the more likely by a Supreme Court's unwilling to set certain Constitutional ground rules one way or the other *before* the election.

In the case of Pennsylvania, the Supreme Court has twice refused to provide the comfort of certainty, while still presenting to the world (and voters) that they may well change election rules after the fact.

That would be problematic enough, but there are many (many) more dominos that could well fall.

This is no way to run a railroad.

Making a hash of things is just the 'Roberts Way'...in Virtual Legality.
