Tyranical Judges Being Thrown Out In Several States
Around the country, judicial elections that were designed to be as apolitical as possible are suddenly as contentious as any another race.
(Besides in Iowa) According to the New York Times:
In Kansas, anti-abortion activists are seeking to recall a justice. In Illinois, business interests are campaigning against the chief justice after a case that removed a cap on malpractice liability, prompting him to run a television ad that opens with the declaration, "I am not a politician." And a conservative group called Clear the Bench Colorado is citing a host of decisions in seeking to oust the full slate of justices on the ballot there, urging voters, "Be a citizen, not a subject."
