PA: Judge Emergency Paper Ballot Ruling Downgrade from State Law

As if we needed more confusion, but it appears Pennsylvania state law originally says one thing about the use of emergency paper ballots, the Secretary of State's September directive said another, contrary thing, and the Wednesday federal U.S. Chief Judge's ruling initiates something at variance with original state election law!

We agree with Brad Blog poster:

"As we reported when the lawsuit was filed last week, state law allows county clerks to give out paper ballots if just one machine breaks down on Election Day, Cortes' stunning decree, issued last month went unchallenged by both the DNC or the Barack Obama campaign..."

It is sad when a judge's decree that downgrades the previous condition as stated in state law is a victory for democracy.

This is truly Kafkaesque...
