Jan Brewer Finally Gets It Right

The governor of Arizona, Jan Brewer became a household name for a few days when she signed into law Arizona’s anti-immigration bill. I believe that was a very bad bill with very bad consequences for America. Yesterday she signed into law another unfortunate bill that makes it harder for unmarried people to adopt children who need to find a home. However, she also vetoed two bills that were sent up to her desk by the Tea Party.

She vetoed a bill that would give Arizona’s Secretary of State the power to decide whether a presidential candidate was born in the U.S.A. She described this restriction as a “bridge too far.”  She also vetoed the bill that would allow guns to be carried onto college campuses.  Kudos to her for finally drawing a line in the sand against the extremism of the Tea Party.
