Update on SD 11
Today at a hearing on the ballots in the SD 11 case, the judge ordered that the St. Johns students that were subpoenaed could leave because they where not about counting the votes but about intimidating the students. According to the NYTimes:
...at a hearing that lasted just half an hour, Justice Kevin J. Kerrigan of State Supreme Court stated that the subpoenas were nothing more than a nuisance and ordered that they be dismissed. He told the students that they had no obligation to present any materials, and he asked them to leave the courtroom and return to their studies.This is a tactic that Republicans often use to scare voters. I remember working on petitioning for Sen. Johnson on Long Island and the Republicans called everyone in to testify that it was them who signed it. It is a shame that the Republicans feel that the only way they can win is to scare voters and get Republican judges to throw out Democratic ballots.
