I always find it funny when judges who claim they only want to decide current law in an unbiased way can't help themselves from trying to bias others about laws to protect themselves. Not only that but they seem to infer that all our local judges are corrupt because the people elect them. I guess if that is true then any elected person is corrupted. Mayors, school board, city council, congress even the president.
They would prefer they stick to a system where they only have to sway a small hand full of people to get their job. The actual law and what the constitution clearly says? well that is secondary.
We keep trying to re invent the wheel. As has often been said, "the American election system is the worst system out there.....Other then all the others we have tried.
