Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin
Is a total disgrace to America but just the tip of the iceberg as to what Justices are doing with your tax dollars. Anyone involved in the legal system should have an annual polygraph test to ensure the American public is safe and getting honest judges.
