Gene Johnson from the Associated Press reports:
Retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor spoke Monday at a Seattle University Law School conference. She told a sold-out audience that threats to judicial independence are rising exponentially as more and more money pours into judicial races around the country.
“It’s the flood of money coming into our courtrooms,” O’Connor said. “You haven’t suffered too much of this in Washington – but you will, if you don’t think about this and change it.”
These comments coming from a former Justice add weight to similar arguments I had already heard from John Grisham in a lively conversation he had with Bill Moyers
