The [Monday] Papers

"In 17 years on the board of the Jesse White Tumblers, attorney Robert Kuzas made some powerful allies in Chicago's black community," the Sun-Times reports.

"Now, those friends have helped Kuzas - who is white - secure a Cook County judgeship from a district created two decades ago to help get more African Americans elected to the bench from the West Side."

Well, that was two decades ago. A lot has changed since then. For example, I'm sure Kuzas is a longtime West Side resident who has done a lot of great work in the area and got his shot at the bench fair and square.

"Kuzas leased an apartment on the downtown edge of the district to run for a vacancy created last November with the sudden retirement of Judge LaQuietta J. Hardy-Campbell, who was one of the subcircuit's 10 judges, nine of them black. The timing of Hardy-Campbell's retirement left potential candidates just 19 days to collect the signatures of 1,000 registered voters to get on the March primary ballot."

Oh.

"Kuzas managed to do that with the help of a political army. And he got the endorsements of black political figures including Secretary of State Jesse White and White's protege, Ald. Walter Burnett (27th).

"Mable Taylor, an attorney who is black, also was seeking seat. But three Kuzas supporters challenged Taylor's petitions and got her knocked off the ballot, leaving Kuzas with no opponent in the Democratic primary."

Robert Kuzas, Jesse White and Walter Burnett, you are Today's Worst People In Chicago.

*

"He's also unopposed in next month's general election. That means he will become one of two white judges in the seventh subcircuit, which stretches west from the Chicago River downtown across the West Side to Berwyn, Cicero and River Forest. The other white judge - elected two years ago, also without opposition - is William Gamboney, who was the attorney for disgraced former police Cmdr. Jon Burge."

Oh for Christ's sake!

*

"Kuzas declined to comment on his judicial race, saying only, 'I've wanted to be a judge since law school.'"

And you found a way to do it. Congratulations.
