Blunt Gives Away Appointments to Big Donors; why not to destroy the Missouri Plan


Gov. Matt Blunt has shown an uncanny ability to give high level appointments to big donors. The best example is Rudy Farber - $50,0000 in donations - Missouri Highway & Transportation Commission. Now let's see, do we really want lawyers seeing who can donate the most to Matt Blunt to get an appointment to the Missouri Supreme Court? Its bad enough that Farber - a rich Republican hack - gets to decide who gets their road paved first. It is down right disgusting to think a rich political hack from either side (let's not forget, Missouri swings back and forth between R and D) would be deciding your case and granting pay backs.

The Missouri Plan is not perfect, but it does not reward campaign contributions. Gov. John Ashcroft was kept in office for 8 years and because the majority of Missourians liked him, he ended up getting to appoint the entire Missouri Supreme Court. Ashcroft never complained about the Missouri Plan of selecting neutral judges. Ashcroft never hired an attack dog like Jeff Roe to orchestrate an attack on the non-partisan court plan. Hard for me to say this, but Ashcroft played by the rules, i.e. the Missouri Constitution. His last appointment was Chip Robertson (Ashcroft's own chief of staff). Chip is no Democrat, but he supports the Missouri Plan.

Justice should be blind (and yes, Attorney General Ashcroft, she's also partially naked). Justice and judges should not be sold off to the highest donor as Gov. Blunt has done with the rest of our state government.

Who about how Blunt gave away fee offices to Todd Graves' wife, Congressman Sam Graves brother? Sometimes Blunt gives out favors in exhchange for favors, not just cash contributions.

Phil Cardarella said...

If the Boy Governor were free to treat the judiciary the same way he treated the fee offices, not only would the judgeships go (directly or indirectly)to big contributors, but he would create a bunch more judgeships to hand out -- just like he did the fee offices.

Check out KC Blue Blog to see how Blunt has given tax credits to a company in trouble after Blunt got $40,000 in political payoffs.

Pay to play is alive and well in Missouri. It would be sad to see a system designed to keep partisan politics destroyed by Matt Blunt.

Hey - Blunt could put dipshit Prof. Bill Eckhardt - the law professor who can't get his facts straight and who serves as the mouthpiece for the Federalist Society - on the Supreme Court. We could have a judge who can't do legal research. http://blogccp.blogspot.com/2007/07/umkc-law-professor-engaging-in.html

UMKC Law School should be ashamed.

Bill Eckhardt is not a dipshit and he does know how to do legal research. His participation in this campaign does not reflect well on him, but it is not the complete measure of him as a man.

Prof. Eckhardt has gotten in trouble at UMKC Law School for copying tests out of study guides. One year - either evidence or civ pro - the entire class got to take a pass/fail because of Eckhardt's plagarism (that was so well known his students all came walking into the class with the study guide in hand). Dipshit or not?

If Eckhardt knows how to do legal research, why would he pen a letter that has inaccuracies on how people are elected to the appeals commission? Dipshit or not?

Did you see that Mrs. John Ashcroft stuck her tongue out at Andy Card and Alberto Gonzales after they tried to twist Ashcroft's arm as he lay in a hospital bed. I like the Ashcroft family more and more.

Congrats to Judge Breckenridge. She has no been appointed to various judicial posts by the last 3 Republican governors - Bond, Ashcroft & Blunt. Why is it only Blunt that felt the need to insult the judicial system and extract extra promises to follow the consitution?

The Missouri Plan worked; a conservative, intelligent non- hack was appointed.

The devaluation of the fiesta Gold grows faster than we think of it. I hope it is reflects to the management department about the question of the fiesta money.
It is caused by the continuous influx of fiesta online gold market currencies. On the other hand, buy fiesta Gold is one of these questions. The fiesta online money is one of the causes.
