Easley Doubles the Number of Democrats on State Supreme Court

First the Guv appoints Democrat Sarah Parker to the Chief Justice seat on the state Supreme Court, to fill in for the retiring I. Beverly Lake. Then he appoints Democrat Pat Timmons-Goodson to Sarah Parker's associate justice seat, thus doubling with one appointment the number of Democrats on the state's high court. Plus Timmons-Goodson will be the first African-American woman ever to sit on the state's highest court.

Occasionally, the Guv comes through.
