The Wurie Case: Restoring the Property Basis of the Fourth Amendment

Media Blackout in Obama Georgia Ballot Eligibility Case

Last week, I noted that Obama turned his back not just on Arizona’s Governor Jan Brewer, but also on the laws of the State of Georgia.  I closed my column, “Georgia Ballot Challenge: Obama Walks on By,” with the observation: “And most of the media has followed along right behind him.” At the time, I […]
