Friends, thanks for your support.  After ten years of being in political public life, I have retired from politics.  I ran for Congress, the Senate and for Governor.  I didn't catch on politically and that is okay.  It was good to fight for change.

I will still be fighting for my causes, Judicial Reform and the long overdue end of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.  

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.   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 get 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 establish systems to fire the corrupt and bring us into the 21st Century.  Join me!

My simple 20 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.

                        WRITE-IN CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR

                       LAMONT, GRIEBEL AND STEFANOWSKI

          Write in candidate for governor, Lee Whitnum, along with her lieutenant governor co-runner Jacey Wyatt, have no illusions of winning but have dedicated their write-in candidacy as a last ditch effort to garner the attention of the three front runners to Whitnum’s 20 bills to clean up the Connecticut Judiciary.

           “Jacey was gracious enough to put her name along with mine on the write-in form. I’m doing this as a last ditch effort to my former co-candidates: Ned Lamont, Bob Stefanowski and Oz Griebel," no one experiences the torture and injustice I've more...

Lee Whitnum has retired from politics.
