comment be expected from vs. be expected by

comment Is there a term for the phenomenon of adding more words to a sentence makes it less clear?
The writer may not be sure that all judicial races are non-partisan. I'm certainly not. To avoid hours or days of research, she simply writes a sentence she is sure is true - that these particular races are non-partisan.
