Pope Bernard Law?

In a rare break in the silence surrounding Papal Conclaves, an Italian Cardinal has released a diary about the event. If you are a Catholic, there is a lot of interesting information to be had. I'm not, so this is the one thing that really stuck out to me:
Finally, the diary includes a few surprises, including a vote in the final ballot for Cardinal Bernard Law, forced to resign as Boston archbishop because of the church sex abuse scandal.
I'm sure this was some sort of a protest vote, but are you kidding me? This is who an individual chose to vote for? A man who presided over a huge pedophilia scandal. I can't make up my mind about whether it was in bad taste, stupid, or both.
