We really don’t need any more reasons to vote against Donald Trump. Our cup already runneth over. But here’s another one anyway. Trump announced today that, if elected president, Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett will be on his short list for potential U.S. Supreme Court nominees. Yikes!
Willett is the justice who wrote last week’s Texas Supreme Court decision that Texas’ bad school finance system was constitutional, taking the legislative majority off the hook to do the right thing for Texas school children. It was a lot of political hand-washing that will leave Texas schools under-funded.
Imagine what kind of damage Willett could do on the big Supreme Court. Maybe not as much damage as Trump would inflict on the country from the White House, but I think you get the idea.
