Deuteronomy 16:18b The judges shall judge the people with righteous judgment. 19 You shall not prevent justice; you shall not show partiality; neither shall you take a bribe; for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous. 20 Justice and only justice shall you follow.

KRYTOCRACY: A Government of Judges, Rule by the Arbitrary feelings of Unelected Judges. Activist judges that usurp the law and impose their will on the little people. The Judicial Code of Conduct says a federal judge “should not” make a contribution to a political candidate or organization.
Welcome to Obamaland. Cynthia Gray, an ethics expert with the American Judicature Society, said: “Federal judges are supposed to be as apolitical as possible, not to show any sort of indication that they would tip to one side or the other.” But the punishment for such a violation is pretty light. Gray said a complaint could be filed to the chief circuit court judge, who could then call Campbell and remind her of the judicial code.
Activist judges know which side their bread is buttered, so they are spreading their largess to the man that has no regard for rule of law. And if the law gets in his way ............
Much thanks to Randall for tracking judge donations and giving me leads.

IMPEACH JUDGE NAPOLEAN JONES WND April 16, 2004
SAN DIEGO – It is time for Congress to impeach U.S. District Judge Napoleon Jones. Judge Jones ruled on Wednesday that the Boy Scouts of America must leave their aquatics center on San Diego's Fiesta Island in which the Scouts have invested millions of dollars since 1987. Jones says that the Scouts are "an admittedly religious, albeit nonsectarian and discriminatory organization" and thus violate the constitutional "separation of church and state" by holding a public-private partnership with San Diego.
In a similar ruling last summer, Jones found "overwhelming and uncontradicted evidence" that the Boy Scouts violate the separation of church and state by having used San Diego's Balboa Park as a summer camp since 1915. After the City of San Diego recently capitulated to the American Civil Liberties Union in legal opposition to the Boy Scouts' use of Balboa Park, the Scouts face a third ruling by Judge Jones in which they will likely be formally evicted from the camp.

Judge Napolean Jones Jr. outlaws use of public land by Scouts Deseret News (Salt Lake City) April 24, 2004
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A federal judge outlawed the Boy Scouts' use of public land because a lease implies the city endorses the group's "inherently religious programs and practices." U.S. District Judge Napoleon Jones Jr. scuttled the Scouts' lease of a bay-side aquatics center at Fiesta Island. Last year he barred a similar lease to use a city park.
And this was reported yesterday at the WSJ law blog:
Federal Judge Caught Out Donating to Obama Campaign WSJ Law blog 10/24/08
A federal judge in Utah found herself in a tough spot recently. Tena Campbell, who was appointed to the bench by President Clinton in 1995, made a $100 contribution to Barack Obama’s campaign in August. The Judicial Code of Conduct says a federal judge “should not” make a contribution to a political candidate or organization.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Campbell, who listed her occupation as government lawyer, gave $100 on Aug. 28, bringing her total donations to the Obama campaign to $300. The Obama campaign verified the donations and plans to return the money.
Campbell, did not return calls from the AP seeking comment.
UPDATE: SCREEN SHOTS OF THE DONATIONS:
Obama's donation site deliberately has NO controls.
