Pennsylvania Amendment to Replace Judicial Elections

Malia Reddick writes the "proposed constitutional amendment would replace partisan elections with a commission-based gubernatorial appointment and senate confirmation process."  I encourage Malia to stick with that phrase "commission-based" rather the term "merit selection" which Prof. Michael Dimino calls "propagandistic".  For more about the problems with the term "merit selection," see this.
