Richard Winger

On October 5, the U.S. Supreme Court heard Carney v Adams, 19-309. This is the case over Delaware’s Constitution, which says that no one is eligible to be a member of the three most important state courts unless that individual is a registered member of a party that has voter registration of at least 5%. This means that an independent, or a member of a minor party (qualified or not) can never qualify for a seat on the State Supreme Court, Superior Court, or Court of Chancery.   . . .

After hearing yet another response, Kavanaugh said, “Well, I guess there’s a mismatch, arguably, between the State’s interest and excluding independents altogether from being judges, because independents could certainly – wouldn’t you agree that independents could serve the purpose of achieving a balanced nonpartisan or bipartisan judiciary.”

It is my view that in a second Trump term we will have hundreds of resignations from Congress in 2021, and that meaningful electoral reform will be passed that leads to a proportional Congress in 2022 that makes evidence-based decisions in the public interest.  I and Dr. Cynthia McKinney continue to do what we can to get the White House to understand that their previous approach was crap because they failed to consult anyone that knows about this topic in depth — there are at least twelve, including Richard Winger — that should be part of the legislative drafting process.  My own contribution, co-authored with Dr. Cynthia McKinney and illustrated by Ben Garrison and Robert Acevedo, can be seend below.
