What's being said

    This problem is part of the larger problem of judges being elected instead of being chosen by a professional committee.

    Anybody with enough money and a few years after law school can run for a judicial position and possibly win a seat. The public, and even many lawyers, have no idea who the candidates are for judicial office. Judicial office should be for those people who have the experience and qualifications to sit on the bench, not for the ones who can win a general election.

    In our form of government the judiciary is specifically excluded as a political branch of government. Allowing judges to be elected subverts the very foundation of our political system. Let‘s get back to intelligent, professionals picking our judges, and back to the system that rarely saw such a tarnished judiciary.
