By paying them off....who ever has the most money wins the judge
Nothing that happens in California would surprise me. It's not just judges, In Clark County Washington a proposal to extend Portland Oregon's light rail into Clark County Washington has been defeated at the polls several times, but the local government has decided to do it anyway and when a petition drive to put it to a vote once again turned in more than enough signatures they promptly set out to disqualify them for some really ridiculous reasons like poor penmanship.
It wouldn't stand up.<br />
Sorry, you said election?
