Whatever works

In this VLW post, a Virginia legislator is cited for the proposition that the Governor proposed taking money from the Virginia State Bar to fund judgeships because the Virginia State Bar complained about the lack of funding for judgeships.

There ought to be a constitutional amendment that says the legislators are thrown out and barred from public office if they don't pass a budget and fill all the judgeships, in every session. Having said that, it is hard to imagine that the VSB surplus could be spent on anything more important.
