The Texas Tribune has a good interview with former Texas Supreme Court justice Harriet O’Neill. It’s always interesting to hear a former justice talk about the faults and strengths of the court system. She talks about some of the problems with taking campaign funds from the lawyers who practice before the Court and how Texas courts have changed over her years as a judge in the system.
It seems that every justice I hear from comments about the problems of campaign finance in Texas judicial elections. I wonder when Texans are going to figure out that they should share that concern.
