We hope you find Tom Corbett's rationalization of his outrageous subpoena to Twitter as appalling as we do.
It boils down to this: "Yes, it's true I sought the identity of my anonymous critic so I could punish him with prison time, but only if it's this one particular guy."
We're pretty sure they covered the First Amendment at Tom Corbett's law school, but let's clarify something for him: criticism of a public official - even anonymous criticism of a public official - is not punishable by law. Not even if the anonymous critic is some guy you managed to convict of a couple of felonies.
It's been clear for more than a year that Tom Corbett and his minions have been hell-bent on proving his anonymous critics are defendants in a criminal case.
Be warned, Pennsylvania: It's a very short leap from "He's only criticizing me because he's a criminal defendant," to "He's only a criminal defendant because he's criticizing me.
