Description

Chicago Lawyer investigates how legal ability, professional credentials and ethics play little if any role in Cook County's judicial election system. Loyal precinct captains almost always beat better-qualified lawyers. Attorneys change their names for ethnic ballot appeal, move into more winnable judicial districts, enter races as straw horses to syphon votes from other candidates of the same ethnicity or gender, or pull out of a race one year in exchange for party backing the next. (March 1, 1996)
