State Sen. Obama on Juv Justice

In 1999 Barack Obama dodged a vote on a state bill that would let some juveniles be tried as adults, voting “present” (neither for nor against). Apparently he voted “present” about 130 times during his stint as Illinois State Senator. This telling tidbit was culled from the New York Times via Corrections Sentencing, which, by the way, gave Juvienation a couple of very generous plugs this week. (Thanks!)
