“A legal panel in Illinois is weighing whether a judge can return to the bench after being declared legally insane two years ago.”
Well, sure, why not? She’s been pulling down her pre-insane $182K salary since she went bonkers presiding over traffic court in Markham, so why discriminate now that she claims she is on her meds and rehabilitated?
On the other hand, since she is an elected official, the only way to give her the heave-ho is by impeachment, and since she is both black and a woman, this would be highly problematic, to say the least.
On the third hand, don’t we all know judges who we thought should be ruled legally insane, yet continue to sit on the bench and collect their pensions?
On the fourth hand, this will come down to how the Democrat Party decides to handle this wacko—will they put her name on the ballot again?
I’m guessing they will—Lane Evans was elected over and over even though he had deteriorated so severely he could not put a coherent sentence together. Mental difficulties are no difficulty for the Illinois Democrat Party—the party of the mentally challenged!
