  4. Panhandling in Pittsburgh: Bruce Kraus' proposed ordinance would be unconstitutionalRead the original story w/Photo

    2 hrs ago | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    The legal and moral logic for Pittsburgh City Council President Bruce Kraus' proposed panhandling ordinance is elusive. Perhaps in its specificity - prohibiting panhandling within 25 feet of the city's new multi-space parking meters - it is intended to meet U.S. Supreme Court guidelines on space limitations for anti-abortion protesters, or to meet court-upheld limits on adult movie house and book store proximity to schools or churches.

A recent court decision has put a spotlight on the ability of Native American tribes to use federal tax dollars to fund litigation to protect treaty rights essentially using tax dollars to sue taxpayers and it turns out the spigot is wide open.
