Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Convicted of Corruption

"A member of Pennsylvania's highest court was convicted Thursday of corrupting the election process in her campaigns to win a seat on the bench, triggering renewed calls to change the system of electing state judges," the AP reports.

Justice Joan Orie Melvin (R) "was just the second known Supreme Court justice to be convicted in nearly three centuries, and her conviction may soon set in motion political campaigns by would-be justices vying to replace her."
