Judge Janet Lewis ruled, in response to a Democrat complaint, that signs in polling places explaining that voting for Mark Foley for Congress would result in a vote for a replacment GOP candidate, Joe Negron, were not permissible under Florida law.
Ed Morrissey at Captain's Quarters gets this one exactly right. Yes, it's unfortunate that voters do not receive an explanation as to how their votes will count, but in treating the issue of replacement candidates in the Florida Statutes, it was the legislature's job to craft an allowance for that type of signage.
Judge Lewis' ruling is consistent with the type of judicial restraint that conservatives should applaud.
Cap'n Ed also points out that party workers are likely to effectively spread the word that a Foley vote counts for Negron, so in any event the decision had no momentous impact on the election. If the election is very close this may be the difference, but those are the breaks.
