In an attempt to further gerrymander elections for our Court of Appeals, SB 667 has suddenly appeared.
Candidates registered with political parties that reflect at least five percent (5%) of statewide voter registration, according to the most recent statistical report published by the State Board of Elections, in alphabetical order by party beginning with the party whose nominee for Governor received the most votes in the most recent gubernatorial election and in alphabetical order within the party.
This will result in all Republican candidates for the position being listed ahead of any Democratic candidates. The list of candidates will be alphabetical by party. With the party of the winner of the last gubernatorial election listed first.
Can they try any harder to control our court system?
If Americans cannot trust their court system, nothing is left.
