Longtime Sharp VodkaPundit Reader™ rg322 clued me in to part of this morning’s story I somehow missed:
“Probate Judge Al Booth had halted all marriage ceremonies in the office the day before. DiPrizio refused to leave the office after sheriffs deputies were called and she was charged with disorderly conduct, court records show.”
I stand corrected. It looks like by handing out a suspended sentence that Booth was acting well within the traditions of American jurisprudence — and that DiPrizio and her newlyweds were acting well within the traditions of American civil disobedience.
The story makes much more sense now and, as always, I appreciate the correction.
