Maybe that's because the arbitrary limit on democracy in question doesn't directly conflict with an election result where they live right now.
New Orleans voters gave the longest-serving judge in Louisiana the boost he needed late Tuesday, lifting Criminal District Court Judge Frank Marullo to a slim, 500-vote majority over a pair of challengers.
But statewide voters might have trumped that decision by handily rejecting a proposed constitutional amendment to erase a mandatory retirement age for state judges.
The 58 percent statewide vote leaves Marullo, 74, girding for another legal donnybrook after successfully fending off a challenge to his candidacy just two months ago.
This time he’ll be fighting for his right to add another six years to his four decades wearing a black robe. Any decision ultimately will be up to the Louisiana Supreme Court, the only body that can remove a judge from the bench.
