Chris Christie has about as much chance of being elected President of the United States, but he did make on small step in the direction, from Charles C. W. Cooke, National Review:

Herewith, a beautiful sight: This is Chris Christie pardoning Shaneen Allen, a single mother from Pennsylvania who had been prosecuted for taking a concealed weapon into New Jersey in violation of the law:


Allen has come a long way. At first it looked as if her mistake — she did not realize that her Pennsylvania concealed carry license wasn’t valid in every other state — was going to land her in prison for more than a decade, cost her her job as a medical practitioner, and take her away from her children.

Christie and his Peoples Republic of New Jersey leave of dirty taste in the mouths of freedom loving people.   One small step for liberty in New Jersey, and one painfully small step on Christie’s road to credibility.

Would it be remiss of me not to give a warm Joe Biden shout out to the Reverend Al Sharpton loud and vocal efforts to free Allen?

Hat Tip: Ace.
