O'Connor says judges shouldn't be elected
Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor said Wednesday she'd do away with electing judges and make prosecutors and defense lawyers interchangeable to improve the U.S. justice system. O'Connor, who has spent much of her retirement defending judicial independence, said judges who run in partisan elections risk being compromised by the campaign cash they must raise. "If I could wave a magic wand ... I would wave it to secure some kind of merit selection of judges across the country," O'Connor said.
