Can Judges Be Bought?

Good question. Parade Magazine wrote an article on this topic today.

Take the famous WV case before the US Supreme Court now, how could the judge who received over $3,000,000 in campaign contributions possibly be impartial when hearing this case involving his major campaign contributor?

Money talks. It defies common sense to think that this judge would not have been influenced in his decision making by $3,000,000.

Even if there is not actual bias, there is the appearance of a conflict of interests. That should be enough for a judge to recuse himself.
