Roe on Judicial Elections: `It’s a Political Process’

From Prime Buzz: (excerpted)

Jeff Roe, the Missouri political consultant, laid it on the line today at a Washington conference on judicial elections.

“Modern-day politics has arrived in the judicial branch,” Roe said in an interview with Prime Buzz. “They (judges) run as partisans. That means the modern-day campaign has arrived at the judicial branch.”

The session, sponsored by the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania and FactCheck.org, was titled “Mudslinging in Judicial Campaigns: Beginning to Look a Lot Like Congress.”

Roe, who heads Axiom Strategies of Kansas City, was called to the conference because of his work on a 2006 campaign to oust former Cole County Circuit Judge Tom Brown. Voters booted him from office after the a campaign by a group that said it opposed judicial activism.
