"Mark Ciavarella, center, leaves the federal courthouse in Scranton, Pa. in February.

A Pennsylvania judge was sentenced to 28 years in prison in connection to a bribery scandal that roiled the state's juvenile justice system. Former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella Jr. was convicted of taking $1 million in bribes from developers of juvenile detention centers. The judge then presiding over cases that would send juveniles to those same centers. The case came to be known as "kids-for-cash."

I have said many times, the judiciary is the single greatest threat to our freedom. Until Congress ends the judicial activism which protects judges from accountability, nothing will change. Further, we need a DOJ section which works on nothing but judicial corruption. We need a very aggressive DOJ campaign against the judiciary.
