Today, at the Missouri Ethics Commission, the folks for preserving Missouri’s non-partisan court plan are taking no chances:

C121294 10/26/2012 MISSOURIANS FOR FAIR AND IMPARTIAL COURTS COMMITTEE The Missouri Bar 326 Monroe P.O. Box 119 Jefferson City MO 65102 10/24/2012 $300,000.00

[emphasis added]

A “yes” vote on Amendment 3 is a first step in the process of gutting the Missouri Court Plan and taking us all down the road to partisan judicial elections for appellate courts and the state Supreme Court. That kind of campaign contribution environment would not be modest and circumspect now, would it?
