Above The Fold

Here's a New Year's prediction: Although the case against the judge is a misdemeanor, it must go to the district court (normally reserved for felonies) because it involves a public official. That means the case will have to be vetted by a Wise County Grand Jury.  I bet the grand jury boots this silliness to the curb in a New York minute. As they should. What an incredible waste of time and taxpayer money.

(And to me the most disturbing thing about this whole case is that the facts, even if true, do not meet the legal definition of Official Oppression. How did it get this far?)
