This seems to be an on going problem for being with power. They always try to get the freebe's. If we think our Judges and Lawyers are above the law you are wrong. I know of several Judges and Lawyers that drink and drive. Judges who drink before sentencing people. Is this the American way? Even our police officer are corrupt. I believe that when I took criminal justice classes this was called the meat eaters or the grass eaters. I guess it depends on how much you can get before you get caught. I believe Judge Coffey should be repamanded in a serious way. What makes him above the law?

Coffey is on the ballot in november. He's had his run as a judge and since he doesn't like the rules let him have to start paying for his basketball and concert tickets. I wish people would use the power and vote him out! The judicial review committee won't do anything to him. VOTE NO on COFFEY

he's not related bt they have been friends for years. Coffey was the one who stopped the learning community law from going through but he did it wrong and then left town. OWH reported he and Mayor Fahey and 2 other lawyers went to Ireland to golf . some other judge had to come in and fix it. The constitutional lawyer was quoted in the paper that Coffey didn't do it right.

coffey needs to be voted out. see
