John Paar: Court cash

November 5, 2012 

Court cash

A massive inflow of cash for ads for one of the N.C. Supreme Court justices has come in from wealthy Republican donors to the myriad of funds made possible by the Republican U.S. Supreme Court justices in the disgraceful Citizens United decision. Voters should be asking themselves what these donors are expecting from this man, to justify such lavish donations, especially since N.C. Supreme Court positions are supposedly nonpartisan. Funding for judicial elections by such organizations should be prohibited.
