How about adding a line about barring governors from accepting campaign contributions from nominees for judgeships?
Because if newly appointed Fulton Superior Court Judge Marvin Arrington hadn't donated $10,000 to Gov. Roy Barnes just before the state's judicial nominating commission began interviewing prospective judges, there wouldn't be so many ethical questions about what is already a head-scratchingly strange choice.
Of course, asserting that a $10,000 contribution to a $10 million campaign is enough to buy a judicial position doesn't add up either. As Atlanta politico David Franklin notes: "The idea that Marvin bought [the position] is laughable."
Clearly, though, the $10,000 creates the appearance of wrongdoing while obscuring the real question, which is what did Arrington promise to convince Barnes to appoint him -- a man with so much ethical baggage and waning political strength?
That would be very nice.
