    Who was it again that opposed retroactive application of this draconian statute?

    How much did this appeal process cost the state in actual taxpayer funds?

    I’d like to send them an invoice for this waste of time and funds.

    Indeed, NEW RULE: if you legislators pass stupid laws you should pay a “stupid penalty” when said law is overturned on constitutional grounds.

    Rick,

    The legislators in charge of this state would rather think THEY are the ultimate arbitrator of what’s good for Georgia, and just blame “activist judges” for interpeting the law in a way that makes them look like idiots.

    “Activist judges” and the State of Georgia… two terms never heard before together, until the ridiculous wingnut cliche was trotted out like it was some tarted-up child at a kiddy beauty pageant on Friday to try and lead the easily-led away from the stink of where the real wrongdoing lies. Sickening.

    Matt Towery clarified what the original bill was going to do. If the orginial bill was made law Generalow Wilson case would have never happened. It was the state senate that moved the law about minors from 14 to 16 and left out the romeo-juliet clause on oral sex. This case was the major blunder for Georgia law since Segregation. Georgia politics and law is so ideologically tilted so far to the far right that there is no real presence of common sense.
