Jay Michaelson

DeChristopher's act was definitely a crime. A victimless crime, and an act of civil disobedience, but a crime nonetheless. The guilty verdict, delivered on March 3, was expected. But the auction itself was also a crime.

The Relentless Conservative

As a columnist, I don't pretend to have all the answers. I don't even pretend to have any of the answers. That's the job and sacred obligation of those we elect to office.
