Judge Cynthia Brim: Should Cook County Democrat Icon Consider Decaf?

Steve Rhodes 9 November 2012 No Comment

“Fresh from a narrow election night victory, Cook County Circuit Court Judge Cynthia Brim was in court early Wednesday – on the other side of the bench as her misdemeanor battery case plays out in court,” the Sun-Times reports.


“Brim won a little more the 60 percent of yes votes to win re-election despite a highly publicized tussle in March with a sheriff’s deputy at the downtown Daley Center court complex.”

“In that case she allegedly shoved an officer, threw a set of keys near a security checkpoint and was subsequently arrested. Nearly a dozen bar groups gave her a thumbs down in the run-up to the election.”

Brim is a mentally unstable disaster whose problems go far beyond tussling with a sheriff’s deputy.

“[Brim] is faulted for inconsistent rulings, hostility toward litigants and attorneys and inadequate knowledge of the law,” the Tribune editorial board wrote – in 2000.

But Democrats – including one of Governing’s public officials of the year – get the judges they want; our is not to wonder why.
