Appeals Court Rules Against Vouchers

Mark Lane at FlaBlog has a short post on the recent appellate court ruling against Gov. Bush's voucher law. He has links to the ruling and a statement by the American Civil Liberties Union, which has been arguing5 (rightly so) for years that the vouchers are an obvious violation of the state constitution, which forbids giving public school money to religious institutions, which is exactly one of the things vouchers are intended to do.

Which is one reason that it's scary to let the Bush brothers have any hand in judicial appointments. Far from opposing judicial activism, as they claim, the GOP wants judges who will interpret laws and the constitution and rule in court cases as the GOP wishes them to do.
