|Info||Padden was a lawyer from Spokane who served as an elector for the Republicans in Washington state. Gerald Ford had lost the election, and Padden rubbed salt in the wound by voting for Ronald Reagan. Oddly enough, Padden's protest was not against Ford but against Jimmy Carter, who he said "consistenly refused to do anything to protect the most basic civil right of all, the right to life itself." He voted for Reagan because he felt that he had the proper pro-life position. |
Padden remained active in politics. He has since been a state legislator in Washington and currently is a district court judge in Spokane.
