Brownback appoints his chief counsel, Caleb Stegall, to the Kansas Court of Appeals

bahahahaha "independent scrutiny".

what world do you think you live in? There are no interview processes or appointments that are neutral, independent, or unbiased in politics. It's one side vetting their man or the other side vetting his.

Brownback appoints his chief counsel, Caleb Stegall, to the Kansas Court of Appeals

"In the recently concluded legislative session, Brownback and his conservative allies passed a law that gave Brownback the power to appoint judges to the court with Senate confirmation."

This makes it sound like Brownback changed the law. He didn't. Kansas is just the most recent state to adopt (with bipartisan support) the new Federal system of judges, where the Gov. nominates and the Senate passes/vetoes.

This appointment will get a lot of attention because it's the first appointment under this new system.

The comments here mostly ridiculous. Labels of "fascism" or "bought by the Koch brothers" are neither true nor helpful. You make the far right look good.
