Update on Elderly Woman Jailed over Sewage Bill

In an earlier post in late December (See "Dirty Rotten Fascist Bastards" posted 12/23/2009) I reviewed the story of Darlene Pennline, an elderly widow jailed near me for failing to pay her sewage bill. A recent article in the Washington Observer Reporter relates that her case has been straightened out- sort of. Hopefully, Ms. Pennline will not only benefit from the help and compassion of strangers, she will also pursue a federal civil rights case to right this injustice.
