Obviously voters pay little, if any, attention to the organized bar's recommendations. The old adage is not to " ...fix it if it ain't broke." It's time to fix it!

I've added the percentages from the retention races. It looks a "no" recommendation was worth about 14 percentage points.

Sad to say...but the minority communities will NEVER vote against one of their own, regardless how corrupt or incompetent an incumbant may be. Call it a variation of jury nullification.
