Jay West Wants to "Pack the Court"

Your state Rep. Jay West (R - Anderson County) is pushing a bill (H.3446) to add two additional judges to the SC Supreme Court.

"Packing the court" was a dangerous idea when Joe Biden proposed it last fall, and its still dangerous now that Jay West is pushing it in Columbia.

Read more about it here.

Remember, we're one of only two states in America where legislators unilaterally appoint judges.

The results?

Not a single state legislator has gone to prison in the last 30 years, and unqualified people get appointed to the bench simply because they're connected to state legislators.

Legislators appoint themselves, their wives, their husbands, their cousins, their law firm employees, and their golf buddies.

Its also why no legislator has ever gone to prison in the last 30 years.

Call your state Rep. Jay West and demand he kill his own "court packing" bill.

Tell him to follow the United States Constitution when it comes to appointing judges. The Governor should nominate and the Senate should confirm appointees.

Here's his number: 864-379-1379

    I complained and Jay West was nice enough to call me back, there is no truth to the story of his supposed ‘packing the court’! Please check the reports that are upsetting or call your representative and see if it’s the truth or not! I was naive to believe what logically I should have known better of!
