Abstract
Judges are the most prestigious members of the court system, but they are faced with challenges that reflect upon there ethics, and faithfulness to the people they serve. Often judges make careless misstates and forget that they are appointed or voted in by the public. Therefore some judges have been removed from the bench due to their behavior that includes, sexual allegations, taking cash, making racist and sexist comments, and lying to a grand jury just to name a few. Voters elect some judges, governors or the president of the United States appoints some and others are appointed through a merit selection. Judges are faced with elections and many judges must campaign to get reelected to maintain their seat. The process of electing a judge is demanding due to the process in which that judge must go through to occupy that seat. Becoming a judge is honorable and yet demanding.

As judges begin to increase spending for there campaigns, fairness decreases. In over 20 states judges have raised over 200 billion dollars. This amount has certainly increased over the years and has found to be in favor for those seeking a seat in the judges’ champers. While campaigning
