    The problem with judicial conduct commissions is that they are nothing more than a rubber stamp, white-wash entities. Look at the Moreland Commission to expose governmental corruption. When it became apparent that the courts were the biggest corruption problem in New York State, Governor (Il Duce) Cuomo shut down the commission because too many of his cronies were exposed, and it was getting to close to the corruption coming out of his administration. By appointing another judge to the commission, is like the fox guarding the hen-house. Judicial commissions should have a majority of interested private, non-attorney, non-judge citizens make up the commission. Therefore, judicial commissions would be fair.
