(New York Sun) -- You know the line about how a grand jury would indict a ham sandwich? Well, feature the hoagie that’s been handed up in Houston, where a runaway grand jury has just indicted two anti-abortion activists for going undercover against Planned Parenthood.
Supposedly the prosecutor was going to be investigating Planned Parenthood, but the grand jury ended up indicting the investigators. Now two young idealists could land in the big house for 20 years.
This for the felony of “tampering with governmental records,” as the New York Times put it, “probably connected to their alleged use of fake driver’s licenses to get into a Planned Parenthood office.”

The indicted duo is David Daleiden and an associate, Sandra Merritt. Mr. Daleiden is the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, a not-for-profit that dubs itself “a group of citizen journalists” reporting on medical ethics.
