Oh, what a warm, fuzzy feeling I got this morning (not!) when I read in the TU that Angela Corey and her family had traveled by bus to the other circuits to be sworn in at each one of them by her good buddy, and former State Attorney, Judge Lance Day. The word “smarmy” immediately came to my mind.
“It says this is all one community” said Judge Day.
I’m sorry to break the bad news to his Honor, but no….that’s not what it says. It takes more than a swearing in ceremony to make a community. What it really says is the “queen” has started her reign over some grim-faced SAO employees, who have now had her swearing in ceremony crammed down their throats.
But even over the waves of nausea emerged a worse feeling when I read in that same news article that the new Public Defender, Matt Shirk, had accompanied the new State Attorney on her road tour. Shirk was sworn in later in the afternoon and then went to his FOP-sponsored soiree.
What’s wrong with that picture?
