Judicial Criteria & Judge Twyla Gray

When you voted for judges in the primary election, what criteria did you use? This spring, the Oklahoma County Bar Association asked over 4,700 local attorneys to rate the judicial candidates on honesty, intelligence, legal ability and expertise, unbiasedness (sic), temperament, courtesy, diligence and dedication. Voters returned Twyla Gray despite her poor score. I wonder if her refusal to accept campaign donations from attorneys mattered to voters. Congratulations on your re-election, Judge Gray. (I’d link you to the excellent story by Scott Cooper in The Oklahoma Gazette but they don’t seem have it on their website; go figure.)

    Thinking of today's uneducated voters makes me think that if it were possible for someone like George Washington or Abraham Lincoln (presuming of course there were no heaver, but I know there is) and they saw the likes of what the voters did in reelecting this woman, they would not even want to come back and deal with the likes of such.
