Courts - "Ray Charles could see that signature was doctored"

According to this AP story, Pennsylvania state Sen. Jane Orie, R-Allegheny, 49 "and her sister, Janine Orie, 56, are charged with conspiring to use the senator's staff to do campaign work for a third sister, Joan Orie Melvin, who was elected to the state Supreme Court."

The trial was halted today while the jury was deliberating, amidst charges of altered documents. The Ray Charles quote is an exclamation from the judge in the trial. See all three of the stories linked in this entry by Pa. attorney Howard Bashman in his How Appealing blog.
