A federal lawsuit attempting to overturn Texas judicial selection process apparently hinges on a single report issued by Texans For Public Justice. As the peoples lawyer, Attorney General John Cornyn is compelled to investigate the credibility of that report.
Contrary to the protests of TFPJ ( Watchdog Group Accuses Cornyn of Harassment , Houston Chronicle, Sept. 1, 2000 ), it is not piling on to ask an accuser to prove his or her accusations. If justice is for sale in our courts then TFPJ should be able to provide examples of baseless decisions lacking in sound legal reasoning. To date, they have not done so.
The TFPJ study Payola Justice does not contain a single piece of evidence that any of the current Texas Supreme Court justices at any time changed their vote or let their vote be influenced by campaign contributions. In 27 cases cited , big contributors lost their case before the high court.
If there is evidence of improper influence lets see it.
