    You would think Due Process would require a prosecutor to disclose to criminal defendants that he had done the presiding judge a tremendous favor by looking the other way at that judge’s possible ethics law violations. A judge would have been spared a possible prosecution and conviction, and all the embarrassment that would accompany it.
    You would think a criminal defendant and his or her legal counsel would want to know that so they could ask that judge to remove himself from the case, or if he refuses, file an affidavit of disqualification with the Ohio Supreme Court. Of course, criminal defendants and their legal counsel cannot ask for that if they do not know in the first place.

    The truth is politics has corrupted our legal system like nearly every other aspect of modern life. It has gotten so bad that judicial candidates for seats on the Ohio Supreme Court now will by law have their political affiliation next to their names on the ballot. In other words, their party membership matters more than anything else. No wonder a county prosecutor might not have the fortitude to do something potentially politically unpopular like initiate a criminal investigation of a sitting judge who is also a prominent member of his own political party. If so, then our legal system is every bit as rotten as our electoral system.
