PA Unions Looking to Buy Supreme Court Seats

PA Unions Want To Own the Supreme Court

Just follow the money.  PA Unions Looking to Buy Supreme Court Seats . This graphic shows the desperation and lfting strength of the PA unions in politics.  They have an inordinate pile of money to purchase the seats they think most important.  They are well on track to accomplishing this in the PA Supreme Court races if you do not study the candidates.  Might make more sense to pick from the candidates with the least money in this case.  This is from this story at Politics PA.

If this is how we are going to handle judicial races, it is time we make them run every four years.
