Romney Criticized for Appointment of Judges

An article in the Washington Post criticized Romney for handling of judicial nominations

An article by Jerry Markon and Alice Crites that appeared May 30 in the Washington Post, criticized presidential candidate Romney for his handling of judicial appointments.

After revamping the process by which nominees were selected for consideration by the Governor’s Council, Romney sought to take over the process presenting several nominees from within his own cabinet, according to the article.

Although the article correctly criticized the actions of former governor Romney, it also implies that these problems vanished with Governor Deval Patrick.

Unfortunately Patrick, adopted his predecessors flawed processes rather than review and improve them.

Patrick should take the time to review this flawed process and create a process that is open, transparent and accountable, as it was initially intended.
