Philadelphia Traffic Court - the delicious irony

Great story in Philadelphia. 15 candidates for traffic court judge in the Democratic primary. Of those 15, 8 owe parking fines. Three of the eight actually owe over $1000 in fines. One of the other candidates has his car registered in another county. And four candidates don't even have a car registered in their names.

These are the people who may be ruling on traffic court matters in Philadelphia. Yet another reason for me never to run for judge - I'm apparently overqualified as I don't owe any fines.

And one successful candidate owes over $11000 in traffic fines and penalties, has an outstanding bench warrant for his arrest, and is prohibited from getting a driver's license until 2011. See this recent news story:
