Articulate Pro-Lifer Speaks Out on “Selection vs. Election ” of Idaho Supreme Court Justices

June 22nd, 2007 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life executive director David Ripley, whose wisdom is frequently read on this blog, has penned a guest editorial in today’s Idaho Statesman, illuminating the real motivation behind liberals’ (and especially Dan Popkey’s) cries to appoint rather than elect our state supreme court.

Ripley observes that even Popkey can’t find fault with the three supreme court justices who were elected by the citizens of the state. Popkey’s only possible motivation for promoting appointment over election is that the latter process gives us justices who are far too conservative .

You’ll appreciate Ripley’s references to the state constitution as he points out the justices retiring mid-term are probably violating their oaths of office. You know – the oaths they swore to uphold the state constitution.

Take a minute to read the full editorial.
