More thoughts on Lopez Torres

From today’s Daily News:
New York's notoriously rigged, boss-driven system for electing judges must go.

From today’s Legislative Gazette:
“Whoever the delegates appoint as the Supreme Court candidates is who will run in November,” said Chairman of the Senate judiciary committee, Sen. John DeFrancisco, R,I,C,WF-Syracuse. He said the process is unconstitutional because it prevents anyone but the convention-nominated candidate from running.

From Saturday’s Times Union:
It's difficult to fathom how the high court could fault Judge Gleeson's logic, or the patent disenfranchisement of New York voters by party leaders.
