The right- wing of the Republican party has set about politicizing the judicial system.No where is this more evident than the race for superior court judge.One candidate,Kathy Schrader has been endorsed by two of our most radical local legislators Buzz Brockway and David Casas. In addition, the anti- choice organization Georgia Right to Life organization has endorsed her.To me, the race judges has taken on a ideological slant that should make every citizen uneasy.This also happens to be one of the objectives of several national right-wing organizations funded by the Koch brothers.
