2018-4-29 - Press conference against the reconfirmation of Judge Jane Emons. 

FIRE THE CORRUPT and streamline our State!

My name is Lee Whitnum, and I am committed to cleaning up the Connecticut  judiciary and the State.  Connecticut is blotted with State employees - including bad judges who clog the system.  There currently exists no way to get rid of corrupt State employees - including bad judges.  Our judges are rubber-stamped in every eight years and so basically they have a job for life, regardless of behavior. 

Our judges have destroyed the lives of so many of our residents.  The corrupt people at the top number 300, but we are 3 million and it is time to take back our State.  As one of the 13 original colonies this State has failed to evolve.  I'm here to streamline Connecticut, fire the corrupt and bring us into the 21st Century.  Join me!

My simple 15 bill plan to empower the people to fire dishonest and corrupt judges and state employees who push the boundaries of "judicial discretion." Like you, I want fairness in the court system. Unfortunately, there are no checks and balances. My simple common-sense bills will empower the people and 'retire' those judges and state employees who have pushed their power too far.
