Cruz hoping for Wisconsin repeat in Hoosier State
A conservative political scientist suspects Ted Cruz is hoping Indiana will be a replay of Wisconsin as Hoosier primary voters head to the polls today.
The push to unseat an Iowa Supreme Court justice continues. The state bar association has issued Judge David Wiggins a report card -- and it doesn't look good.
Because of a unanimous Iowa Supreme Court ruling, homosexual "marriage" became legal in the state on April 3, 2009. In 2010 retention election, three of the justices in that majority ruling were voted out, and now David Wiggins is on the ballot for a retention vote in November.
Bob Vander Plaats of Family Leader tells OneNewsNow the Iowa Bar Association puts out a score on the justices, and Wiggins has received a very low score. Wiggins is currently the focus of a campaign to vote him out office.
"In the 50 years of this scoring mechanism, Justice David Wiggins rates the lowest scoring Supreme Court judge in the history of the state of Iowa -- and not just by a few percentage points," he says.
"By just about double-digit percentage points, he was rated as the worst judge."
The Iowa Bar Association gave Wiggins a grade of 63 percent -- which amounts to a D-minus.
"It's our full belief that when a court shows a propensity to go outside of its constitutional parameters, to legislate from the bench, to execute from the bench and even to try and amend the constitution from the bench, all while breaking Iowa law and Iowa code, that shows a justice who has no regard for the people, no regard for the constitution and no regard for the law," Vander Plaats declares.
He believes an educated electorate will go to the polls next monty and vote Wiggins out of office.
