A Rarity: I Agree with the AG

I can’t believe it, I actually agree with Jon Bruning! He has risked going to jail by asking the state Supreme Court to force Lancaster County District Judge Steven Burns to release his reasons for vacating the grand jury investigating Regent David Hergert.

I also agree with Bruning on this point:

“This is not North Korea,” Bruning said. “This is America. And in America we have a free court system, we have a free people, we have a First Amendment that allows a free press to write down the free speech of its citizens.

“And I am ashamed anytime that our system fails ... by closing itself off and conducting itself in secret,” Bruning said. “This government needs to be open, whether it’s the legislative branch, the executive branch or the judicial branch.”

Trouble is, I’m not sure how much Bruning himself believes it.

Yeah, wow.  I agree with you and AG Bruning on something other than restaurants.  I’d love to hear Jon’s opinion on this same issue, though,  if it concerned Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney and George Bush.

Ohh ye of little faith!  What do you have against Jonny boy?
