Party Leaders Are Once More Conniving To Deprive Voters Of A Choice For Judge

The Buffalo News weighs in on judicial elections. From the editorial:

“Voters have virtually no influence over the selection of judges. Leaders of the local Democratic and Republican parties decide between them who they want on the bench, often demand cash from the hopefuls, then crassly and openly agree to endorse the other party’s candidates. It’s a cynical ploy that any competent judge would invalidate as illegal collusion in business. In the business of New York politics, though, it’s just the way it is.”
