Ziegler's many conflicts of interest

She's at it again!

Ziegler to hear case funded by election supporter.

I'm not sure why the attorney general hasn't asked her to recuse herself yet. Doesn't $2 million in donations from the company that's partially funding the defendent in this case count as a big, fat, super obvious conflict of interest? If not, what does count as a conflict of interest in this state?

I was ticked off that voters put Ziegler into her current position in the first place, what with all of the major conflict of interest issues that came up during the election. Heck, even she admitted to a violation of the state's judicial code, and all she gets is a slap on the wrist in the form of a reprimand. Have we given up entirely on holding public officials accountable? Because that's the message I'm receiving, and I don't like it one bit.
