Unexpected pay-raise fallout (judicial-style)

PA Chief Justice Ralph Cappy has taken some flak from columnists and others for his apparent disbelief that the public was upset with the recent state governmental pay-raises (see this). Now it looks like the karma has come back to bite him, as he may be in trouble for having lobbied the legislature on the issue.
Political activist Gene Stilp has requested that the state Judicial Conduct Board determine whether Cappy violated ethics rules in advocating for pay raises for the judiciary and in holding secret meetings with lawmakers toward that end.
And, of course, lawsuits concerning the matter may come before him. eesh.
