Like a “B” horror movie or a political party bereft of ideas and in serious decline, they keep coming back with the same cheesy plots.

Tony Messenger posted on the opponents of the Missouri Court Plan via Twitter this morning:

Better Courts for Missouri group announces they have filed petition hoping to get on the ballot to change how judges are chosen in Missouri. about 1 hour ago from TweetDeck

I replied:

@tonymess Calling “Better Courts for Missouri” a “group” just might be a misnomer: http://bit.ly/SI8nP and http://bit.ly/f6qXc  about 1 hour ago from web in reply to tonymess

Tony Messenger at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reaffirms the lack of transparency coming from Better Courts for Missouri at the end of his article:

Anti-Missouri Plan group plans ballot initiative for judge selection

By Tony Messenger

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

JEFFERSON CITY – Stymied by an unwilling Missouri Senate, opponents of the current method of choosing many judges in the state will head to the ballot and ask voters for help….

….Asked if this was simply part of the political pressure being put on the Senate to make changes, Harris said his group was “serious” about the petition process. He would not, however, tell reporters who was backing the process financially.
