I'm skeptical of any politician that spends $100,000+ to convince a few counties in Southern Illinois that he's an "honest and good man."

I really hate that fat kid in that one ad that talks about Renshaw being a smart and honest man, what does a kid know about politics? Ok I don't really hate the fat kid but it's damn annoying.

I find it offensive that he plasters Christian symbols all over his political propaganda. Is he insinuating that the other candidates are atheists?

The people in Jefferson county have little good to say about the man. Has ran for several political positions there and has yet to win. Now he wants to be a judge with very limited courtroom experience. I think not. To be honest, I'm leary of all the candidates.

Isn't this the same guy that was caught misrepresenting his qualifications when he ran for State's Attorney in Jefferson County? Or was it when he ran for State's Attorney in Hardin County? Or was it when he ran for City Council? It's too confusing to remember.

Get used to it he's gonna win! He has ran a proactive campaign. Franklin County democrat leaders cannot get their act together. They have 3 candidates who will divide the vote and let Renshaw, the guy with the money, win. Then Franklin County has Dirnbeck who has represented every doper shit head in the area. He recently got caught fixing the bar association poll to make himself the only qualified candidate. Really? No there's a trustworthy guy who merits a lifetime cushy job as a judge, not!

Well, it seems that we can also choose to elect a founder of a child advocacy agency CASA or......well......a candidate backed by Jorome Gholson (Renshaw). Yikes!!!

How did he fix the bar association poll? That would be nearly impossible to do unless he stole the ballots.

What, how you fix a bar poll is like this. First of all only about 30-35 % of the attorneys participate. A few of your "friend" lawyers give a certain candidate a perfect rating of 100. Those same lawyers give the other candidates a big fat zero and presto only one candidate is deemed worthy of the job. I'm pretty sure Parrish, Swofford, Renshaw, and Newcombe are the victims of this little "insider" deal. This is nothing more than a huge joke, a popularity contest at best, controlled by about a third of the lawyers. Do some research for yourself. I don't know for sure who staged this one but it was discussed at a recent candidate forum at the Benton Elks and candidate Dirnbeck did not refute the accusation. This is common practice among lawyers trying to get their best buds on the bench. This is the reason that 70 % of the lawyers chose not to participate, more times than not somebody gets sandbagged.

I never trusted those judicial polls. Lawyers afraid to put their name behind who they endorse. Come on, if the attorneys are for someone then I will be against that person. Kind of like letting the fox guard the hen house.

It's funny you say that because when one of the corrupt Benton police officers you like to trash here throws your arse in jail, you'll be peeing your pants and listening to everything your lawyer says. Your lawyer will tell you, however, that he'll take your case before the judge, but he will also tell you that he wished you had also listened to him when was advising you when were selecting your judge.

The irony there is lost on only the ignorant.

Kent Renshaw will make a GREAT JUDGE for ALL of Southern Illinois Circuit Court....Yes he is VERY HONEST!!!! One of the founders for CASA is also running for Judge TJ Parrish......Both are GREAT Candidate's for Circuit Judge, both have lots of courtroom experience and also helped not only Jefferson County but other counties too!!! They would be better than some of the people that are in the Franklin County office now (that is strickly MY OPINION).

I DIDN'T vote for him just because of his ads. They are TOO cheesy. Especially the ad with the chunky kid--like he knows what it takes to do a good job. Too many "endorsements" also. Trying TOO hard. Something just isn't right about that man.

LOL! He's a public defender. He is appointed to them by the courts.

Well, money can buy a judgeship! Didn't think there were that many sheep in southern Illinois that would get caught up in all the hype and commercials and not check out the candidates. I was wrong. So there you have it. Throw enough cash into signs, ads and commercials and you can obtain an elected office too, qualified or not. In that case, not.

As of this morning Dirnbeck was leading by 61 votes in the updated results, this isn't over yet.
