Fla. Demo justices too partisan 121500 - The Augusta Chronicle

I was watching TV's People's Court and one of the litigants owned an Italian restaurant. He asked Judge Wapner if he liked Italian food.

The judge would not say. He wanted to appear to be unbiased and not possibly influenced by favors and gifts from someone.

If one can be perceived as possibly being influenced by something that petty, how much more can the justices of the Florida Supreme Court be perceived as influenced by the fact that their verdict could put a man in office that is of their political persuasion.

All seven of them have Democratic ties. We have absolutely no assurance that it was an unbiased ruling. The rules, laws and methods of elections that were in place prior to an election should not be changed after the election ...

Gerald Roberts, Augusta
