Letters from Shirley


Over at, I comment on the fundraising efforts by septuagenarian State Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson.

But no claim of bi-partisan support is going to protect Abrahamson from the likely onslaught of third-party advertisements, just as any Abrahamson opponent can expect third-party attacks as well. As liberal judicial philosophy becomes increasingly outcome-based rather than on the specific intent of the law and the state constitution, interest groups have an increased incentive to attempt influencing the outcomes of judicial elections.
