Blow struck against political intimidation in California.

This is good news:

A federal judge in Los Angeles has again shut down California Attorney General Kamala Harris’ drive to obtain the donor list for Americans for Prosperity, an influential political group funded by Charles and David Koch.

U.S. District Court Judge Manuel Real issued a permanent injunction Thursday barring Harris’ office from requiring AFP to submit the donor list. And AFP may not be considered deficient or delinquent in its filings because it won’t turn over the form, the judge said.

Note that I’m not going to pretend that AG Harris isn’t selectively trying to enforce the law in order to get her progressive hands on a leakable list of conservative and libertarian donors. Unlike her, I’m not inclined to treat the American voting public as idiots. Bad reputations, once acquired, have a habit of sticking, folks. Something to keep in mind…
