Mr. Brummett regrets .... Courtney Henry



There are other points, but the nut of John Brummett today:

I apologize to readers for having recommended Justice [Courtney] Henry’s election last year over John Fogleman. It was the second-worst endorsement I ever made, topped only by that of Mark Wilcox for secretary of state.

I did so only because Justice Henry was married into a prominent political family in Fayetteville for which I have great regard and respect. That she split the sheet with that family a few days after her election took away the only thing that commended her for the job.

The trouble is that these are eight-year terms.

He sees it as another argument for appointment of judges from bar-screened candidates. I'm not sure I'm with him on Senate confirmation of state judicial appointments.
