Illustration for the feature story "Toxic Judicial Elections and How to Avoid Them" by Doug Smith
From the article: "The prospect of big, greedy corporations and bigoted, right-wing religionists seizing control of the state courts is plenty scary, like finding Karl Rove and Donald Wildmon on your doorstep. (Does anybody sell Rove and Wildmon masks for Halloween? People would hand over their daughters to avoid tricks from those two.) Add the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to the cause, and you have a true Axis of Evil."
The bottom half of the hands were covered by an ad. Maybe for the best - with the hands, my judge took on an Emperor Palpatine feel.
