Controversy Reveals Constitutional Flaw

The controversy over the NJ Supreme Court reveals another flaw in the 1947 Constitution. Most states fill judicial posts through elections. The recent decision over a vacancy would never happen in Pennsylvania, New York, or the other states, which use a democratic process.

From 1845 to 1948 the NJ Governor served a single three-year term and could not have a second term. Nobody had to vote for another party’s candidate to dump a failure who bought the governorship. A one-year term for the Assembly and a three-year term for the Senate prevented the high taxes brought about by the 1947 Constitution.
