The Partisan and the Judge: Does Judge Fuller have a background
that should have disqualified him?
..............................................................................................................
The Partisan and the Judge
Scott Horton of Harper's

Fuller’s principal qualification for his position was his record of
political engagement (campaign manager for Terry Everett, member
of the Alabama Republican Executive Committee, etc.). His
appointment is a testament to the remarkable success of Karl Rove’s
long-term political strategy.

The process of judicial appointments has always been a political
process, and inescapably so. But never in our history has the
partisan aspect of the struggle been so apparent and so damaging
to our democracy.

The question is whether Fuller is Karl Rove’s kind of judge: a man
who sees a case involving a political adversary in the courtroom as
the opportunity for the continuation of politics by other means.
