Minnesota high court yanks judicial candidate Michelle MacDonald's law license

ST. PAUL, Minn. The Minnesota Supreme Court on Wednesday indefinitely suspended the law license of frequent justice candidate Michelle MacDonald, affirming a referee's finding that she violated the state's rules of professional conduct by falsely impugning the integrity of a judge.

The high court also said MacDonald cannot petition for reinstatement for four months, calling it an appropriate penalty for repeating her misconduct by knowingly making false statements about the integrity of the same judge while still on probation in an earlier disciplinary case.

(snip)

MacDonald, a conservative family law specialist from West St. Paul, has run for a seat on the high court four times. She got 41% of the vote against Thissen and 44% against Chutich.

1. Good! She's a complete loon who's been trying to get on the state supreme court

for years. It's amazing that she got as many votes as she did. In this state judges are initially appointed by the governor for a six-year term, but after that they have to run for re-election. They don't run by party affiliation, and usually aren't even opposed and are almost never defeated even if they are. But this wack job has the support of the right-wing lunatic fringe, and I hope that indefinite suspension continues indefinitely so she can't run again.

4. She'll be appointed to the US Supreme Court..

sometime after August 19th, when the real inauguration takes place. You know, the one with the biggliest crowd ever, for the Supreme High Exalted Ruler who really and truly won the November election. Evidence to follow as soon as we see her emails and Hunter's hard drive.
