The Chancellery Judge upheld the Election Commission's decision to keep the English First/Only referendum off the November ballot, which is all fine and good. But Eric Crafton--who haughtily says he intends to appeal his baby to higher courts--should have to answer to taxpayers for how much this first round is costing us. He's an elected official, for Pete's sake, and accountable to voters. He consistently pounds away at government employees for being accountable to Metro Council for expenses, so why does he feel that he's entitled to hire a contemptuous lawyer in an effort to sue our government (a government which also pays his council salary) at greater cost to us?
