Judge without a cause

In today’s Gazette, Spike Maynard flounders around justifying his charade with Don Blankenship.

But the real issue is the closing statement in the article:

“my record of fighting to keep the economy strong, keep insurance rates low, keep doctors in the state, and keep our families and communities safe.”

That’s not his job. His job is to rule on cases objectively and without promoting any causes. He’s supposed to uphold the State Constitution, not his personal beliefs.

And that’s the problem with the WV Supreme Court of Appeals. Benjamin was elected thanks to Blankenship’s promoting him as a solution to a “cause.” People dislike McGraw because he has a “cause.” When are we gonna get some judges on the court?
