Front Page USA Today Story on Capterton v. Massey

The important article contains these statistics: "A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll this month found 89% of those surveyed believe the influence of campaign contributions on judges' rulings is a problem, and 52% deem it a 'major' problem. More than 90% of the 1,027 adults surveyed said judges should be removed from a case if it involves an individual or group that contributed to the judge's election campaign."

UPDATE: Bauer urges caution.
