San Diego Union Tribune “Conflict seen in race for judge’s post”

San Diego Union Tribune Conflict seen in race for judge’s post  February 26, 2014,  by Sharon Noonan Kramer
 
“Regarding the Feb. 24 Union Tribune Watchdog article by Greg Moran, ‘Judge candidate feels heat to quit,’ the gist is that a local legal advocacy group was pressured by local judges to drop its endorsement — which it did, of one of its members, Carla Keehn, for Superior Court judge. It was implied that Ms. Keehn should drop from the race [or get off their board of directors]. This would leave sitting judge, Lisa Schall, unopposed.
 
Not in the article, DA Bonnie Dumanis is also a group member. It raised funds for her re-election. According to Schall’s website, Dumanis endorses Schall’s re-election, as does San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith and ‘all 127 judges of the San Diego Superior Court.’
 
Would Dumanis prosecute her fundraisers and judges for election tampering on behalf of a judge she endorses? Citizens have a right to vote without elections being fixed.” 
 
Today’s Damn Questions go to San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis via an email sent to Assistant District Attorneys Sherry Thompson and James Koerber.  Ms. Thompson and Mr. Koerber, if you would be so kind to please forward to DA Dumanis. Thank you.
 
The Damn Questions:
 
1. In 2013, did Tom Homann LGBT Law Association (THLA) endorse Carla Keehn for any Superior Court seat  — OR — In 2014, did THLA rewrite Policy #2 while lying to conceal their prior multi-seat endorsement of Keehn? 
 
2. Is this ADDITIONAL RACKETEERING (see RICO docs by CCFC) by a Judicial Council member; a Gov. Brown judicial appointee; and an alleged “non-profit” civil rights group that is a fundraiser for Dumanis, so that people can’t vote corrupt judge Lisa Schall out of office?

Just answer the Damn Questions, Please!  Thank you!
