Judge Charles Canady, who as a congressman helped prosecute then-President Clinton at his impeachment trial, was appointed Thursday to Florida's high court. As GC to Jeb Bush, Canady defended the then-governor's voucher program, which let children in failing public schools switch to private schools at taxpayer expense. The Supreme Court ruled it was unconstitutional. Canady made his non-activist leanings clear in his application by promising to be mindful of "the limited role of the judicial branch."
