Republican Judge takes a stand for Integrity

Republican Judge J. Douglas McCullough of North Carolina resigned early in protest of a corrupt state legislature. After the people of NC elected a Democratic Governor the Republican legislature has worked very hard to curb or eliminate his powers.
One of thier actions was to lower the Court membership so that the governor could not appoint new judges who would soon be forced to retire due to term limits.
This judge resigned early because he felt that was wrong and did not want his legacy to be just another notch in the parties corruption.
