Taft Signs S.B. 9 and S.B. 53
Our criminal governor has been busy signing bills that will make more Ohioans into criminals.
The Ohio Legislative Service Commission's status report on Senate Bill 9, ever slow to update, just recently reported that Governor Taft signed the bill, which will expand the power of police to demand identification from law-abiding citizens, and make criminals of those who don't produce identification on demand. The act will take effect on April 14.
The Chillicothe Gazette reports that Governor Taft signed Senate Bill 53, which will invade the privacy of cold and allergy sufferers, and make criminals out of those who buy too much cold medicine in a month, in a futile attempt to curb the use and manufacture of methamphetamine.
Sometimes I think Governor Taft might be the worst governor ever, but then I remember that Jim Rhodes killed people.
