Did the Blindfold Slip?

The Appeal is an interesting book which delineates the dangers of a justice system on the auction block.  It turns out, Dear Gentle Reader(s), that the book’s genesis has a basis of fact.

An editorial in today’s The New York Times tells us of a case to be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court involving a 50 million dollar award, a 3 million dollar campaign contribution, and a newly elected Kentucky State Supreme Court justice who refused to recuse himself and voted in favor to reverse the 50 million.  Guess who received the 3 million in campaign contributions.

Kentucky has given us Senator Mitch McConnell and now Justice Brent Benjamin.

My Old Kentucky Home” needs refurbishing.

Kentucky voters, Trust, but verify.
