Description

A Chicago Sun-Times investigation of the Illinois Supreme Court Justice Charles Freeman reveals that he uses his "power to appoint trial court judges to reward his buddies, donors to his campaigns, political allies, even a friend-of-a-friend's ex-wife." Upon further investigation of Illinois law, the Sun-Times learned that Supreme Court justices appoint trial justices -- voters think they are electing them, but they actually start out as appointees.
