Outsider to our beloved Commonwealth suggests that judicial elections should end here in PA. The shock!

And not just any outsider.

Everyone who knows about the court in Pennsylvania knows that the money the law firms give to sponsor a judge’s candidacy is an investment in getting future favorable opinions from the judge. The bigger and more established you are as a lawyer or firm in Pennsylvania, the more likely it is you win—and get to shroud it all in talent or merit! The merit that money buys, right?!

Why does Pennsylvania always have to be a laughing stock state, where observers from outside of it can clearly see the flaws. People here get themselves worked up over very simple changes. Appellate judges (at least) should be appointed by the Governor with consent of the state Senate.
