South Dakota Judicial Accountability Movement - II

Nina Totenberg has a piece on National Public Radio's Morning Edition today on the South Dakota initiative known as "Jail for Judges" that we covered earlier. (Nov. 15, 2005) At the time, I called the initiative "one of the worst reform ideas ever."

It seems I'm not entirely alone. Among the sources cited by Totenberg, one is a blogger, DakotaWarCollege, who has exposed some of the nuttier ideas behind the proponents of the Jail-for-Judges initiative.

While the Jail-for-Judges initiative seems to be headed for defeat, recent polls show the initiative failing by a little more than ten points. From where I sit, that's still a little too close for comfort, especially on an initiative that is so far outside of the mainstream.
