Judges hide their political party affiliations from voters when running for election in WA State Supreme Court Justice positions. I know they're not supposed to be partisan, but much of their work is done from their beliefs. Is there any way the voters can find out their hidden party affiliations?
According to ballotpedia.org only Supreme Court Position 8 is contested in 2108 WA, the choices being either:
Steven Gonzalez (Incumbent)
Gonzalez was appointed by Democratic Governor Chris Gregoire in November 2011 to a term that commenced in 2012. He was elected to
the court in 2012 for a term that began in January 2013 and expires
on January 13, 2019. -- BP
Gonzalez was appointed by a Democrat, and is endorsed by the major papers as well as liberal papers and WA's Democrats. Presumably he'd have to be a liberal.
Choi seems to be an eccentric and outspoken conspiracy theorist who champions the appointment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, (but his favorite Justice is Clarence Thomas), appears to be a 9-11 "Truther", and sometimes misses a few typos (i.e. "never not"):
Nathan Choi will be a Rule of Law Judge and never not take a quarter of a Millon Dollars from individuals or entities with Elite Globalist ties.
