My, my. The Sun-Times has an excellent and lengthy piece today on how Cook County judges get on the Democratic ballot. And who's included but Judge Mary Rochford, who threw out the "Fix Wilson Yard" case the first time on a technicality, without even addressing a single legal argument?
"Epstein is followed by Judge Mary K. Rochford. Rochford is married to Mike Demetrio of Corboy & Demetrio. Epstein was married to Judge Joan Corboy before her untimely death. Could these be the two lawyers tied to the "same firm" Gorman mentioned?
Rochford last time around ended a 16-year drought of Democrats never winning election from the far north suburban 12th Subcircuit. She mentions another staple most of these candidates will use some version of: "I'm a life-long Democrat. My family are a life-long Democrats."
This is an article well worth reading. Excuse us, but we need to go use mouthwash now to rinse out the nasty taste the article left behind.
