Well, this is the typical stuff you get in Lake County when Dem County Chairman Terry Link is at the helm. This particular race is for the 2nd Judicial Sub circuit, which by the way, was created through legislation promoted by Terry Link just so he could finagle a way to get more Democratic judges elected in Lake County.
The candidates in this race are current judge Valerie Ceckowski on the GOP ticket, and attorney David Weinstein for the Dems. You can see by the picture that Weinstein's minions have little class or respect for his opponent, or even just common decency. Put up your signs, folks, but have some basic respect for your opponent, huh?
I don't know much about Weinstein, having met him only on one occasion, which was when I dared to show up to a meeting of the Warren Township Democrats a few months ago (they said all were welcome, after all) to find out why Lauren Beth Gash thought Lake County was turning from "red to blue." At that meeting, I was rather appalled to hear Weinstein state publicly that the current associate judges he was appearing in front of had all of a sudden all become very nice to him, to which Weinstein attributed the notion that they all thought Weinstein was going to win the election and be their boss as a full circuit judge. I almost left at that point, as Weinstein's inflated puffing was kinda sucking all the air out of the room. Well, I wonder how the associate judges felt about Weinstein after that comment (which I made sure a bunch of judges heard about).
In any event, you can learn more about Judge Ceckowski's qualifications on her campaign website. She is the only candidate with judicial experience, and if you prefer experience over ego (as well as someone with some basic common decency), I would strongly consider voting for her, if you live in the 2nd Subcircuit.
By the way, check out this picture of David Weinstein. I think he bears an uncanny resemblance to "Zoltar", the mechanical fortune-teller. What do you think?
