Tipping The Scales?
It seems unethical that the judges in this state are using state funds for their campaign for re-election.
New directory centers on Iowa judges
Marsha Ternus, with the budget crisis that closes down courthouses, is this a good use of taxpayer dollars?
Iowa Voters Judicial Directory
This directory contains biographies of each the 74 justices and judges on the ballot. These biographies include information about each judge's education, career, and professional and community activities. The directory also contains information about Iowa's judicial retention elections as well as considerations that voters may want to take into account when deciding whether to retain a justice or judge.
The directory helps(?) voters decide what makes a good judge and why they shouldn't be judged on the outcome of one case.
It wouldn't be acceptable for any elected official, from the Governor on down, to blatantly promote their retention on an official web site.
This shouldn't be allowed either and the scientific community is united in that fact.
