She's no Democrat.

She is absolutely unfit to hold judicial office.

You can quote me on that.

Dr. Mary Johnson

Alas, given the rhetoric and imagery of other campaigns in recent weeks, invoking comparisons to the Nazis as the campaign season draws to a close seems almost tame and even predictable.

Without taking Rachel Hunter's "side" on any issue, I understand that you hate her and her rhetoric. You think she's not qualified for the job she's seeking. And all of that is fine. It's a free country. But "batshit crazy" takes the name-calling a bit too far in "civil" discourse.

You're also fairly obviously trying to provoke someone who will take the nasty slur as an invitation to defend her honor. Then the gang-bashing will begin.

It would be nice if he would not take the bait this time . . . and let this particular provovation swing in the wind for what it is.

The CA

"batshit crazy". I like that one, Ed. John, David Duke was no Republican either, but that's the banner he ran under.

I find it harder every day to believe that Hunter is actually employed by a law firm. That's gotta be good for clients.

The Dude

The Independent Weekly, the Triangle area's leading progressive Democrat publication, has endorsed incumbent Mark Martin. They had this to say about Rachel Lea Hunter:


"Hunter, who has just five years of experience as a lawyer and no experience on the bench, is after the lefties (despite the fact that she courted Republicans when she ran in 2004). She's called for the impeachment of President Bush, come out against the war in Iraq, and questioned whether oil companies are manipulating the price of gasoline. But the court is not in need of an ideologue, especially a confused one. Judges' races are nonpartisan for a reason. Intelligent candidates who understand the law and apply it fairly should prevail.

Fortunately, Mark Martin is running for re-election. He has garnered strong bipartisan support, in part because Hunter is so disdained but also because he has one of the sharpest legal minds on the bench. He's been a judge for 14 years, serving at the Superior Court and Court of Appeals levels. He has taught law students at UNC, N.C. Central and Duke. He writes thoughtful opinions that often break with his conservative colleagues and, observers say, doesn't bring pre-conceived notions to his decisions. We need more conservatives like Martin on the bench."


Connie Mack Jr

Rachel Lea Hunter comes across as batshit crazy and completely unsuited for a seat on the state's high court.* Ed

Wow Ed! You have really reach a new low for a jouralist as it appears that you might need some humanity therapy like some of the hate mongers you have here.

It appears that the little beast has come out in you. I think Brother Pat Robinson might have you down as a hot propect for the demon casting out religious rites.

ps...When can I expect a prayer for RLH tumor to go away. Forget the Get Well card, you are too much of a cheap skate to buy one anyway. Now don't you feel like a piece of feces.

So John! Are you still running for Party Chair of Wake County as it appears that you have adopted the new and amazing tactic of the religious right by purging all big tent conservative Democrats out of your diverse party. Is Heath Shuler on your hit list along with Larry Kissel? I hope you don't mind me quoting you as you requested John.

Hugs and Kisses

John Burns

I have not decided whether to run for anything. Keith Karlsson is the Chairman of the Wake County Party.

I have given money to Larry Kissel and wholeheartedly support him and Heath Shuler.

I do know when someone shows by her public statements and behavior that she is not fit for judicial office. Maybe she would surprise us and be a great judge. But if so, then your campaign has done extraordinary damage to her image, Connie.

(Preparing to see the above quote on your website, edited to: "... she would . . . be a great judge. . . . extraordinary."

Ed Cone

Connie, as I've written before, I wish Rachel the best in her struggle to regain her health, and I imagine that most readers would share that sincere sentiment.

But she can't avoid criticism while running for public office just because she's ill, especially when she seems to go out of her way to invite it.

The Dude

The Raleigh News and Observer has also endorsed Justice Mark Martin for NC Supreme Court.

Mark D. Martin, 43, of Raleigh was the youngest justice in the Supreme Court's history when he took the oath in January of 1999. He's still younger than all but one candidate for the high court, but his distinguished track record tends to silence the doubters. Martin held court in 28 counties as a Superior Court judge, served four years on the appeals court and has participated in 600 opinions on the high court. He has degrees from Western Carolina University and the University of Virginia and UNC law schools.

His opponent, Rachel Lea Hunter, 44, of Cary is so lacking in experience for this job that she attempted to use the nickname "Madame Justice" on the official ballot. She spent 12 years of her legal career as a law clerk in Pennsylvania, before being admitted to the North Carolina Bar four years ago. Fortunately, the state elections board denied Hunter the opportunity to mislead voters. Martin is the real justice and should remain so."

Connie Mack Jr

Hi Don and John! Thought you Republican fruitloops might like to see how many hate-mails Don has sent in the last 24 hours to the RLH info center with some brilliant comments about his concern with humanity... Does obession ring a bell with you addicted fools?

I get it now....you just can't come to terms with your sexuality can you Connie? You

And why do you want to know about my marriage? I would focus on your own if

Connie, as I've written before, I wish Rachel the best in her struggle to regain her health, and I imagine that most readers would share that sincere sentiment.

But she can't avoid criticism while running for public office just because she's ill, especially when she seems to go out of her way to invite it.* Ed

Really Ed! So calling somebody bitz shit makes you a person of concern for RLH health. I do hop e when you are on the death bed that nobody leaps into your ICU bed and whipers died bitch, that is not personal because it is politics. I think you are much sicker than I thought Ed like some of your friends here. Maybe all of this blogging business has corrputed your moral values in politics.

The Dude

The Greensboro News and Record has also endorsed Justice Mark Martin for NC Supreme Court:

October 20, 2006
Martin merits election in critical judicial race
Excerpts from the Greensboro News & Record Endorsement

"N.C. Supreme Court Justice Mark D. Martin is one of the state's finest jurists, but he gets much less publicity than his election opponent.

Maybe that's OK. Rachel Lea Hunter stands out for the wrong reasons.

Her antics have attracted attention since she filed for office last winter and asked the State Board of Elections to include on the ballot her self-bestowed nickname, "Madame Justice" -- even though she's never been a judge of any kind. The board refused. She's clashed with the media, leaders of both political parties and the legal establishment ever since. In response to criticism of her behavior, she's quoted P.T. Barnum: "There's no such thing as bad publicity as long as they spell your name right."

"Bad publicity," though, isn't recommended for someone who wants to sit on the state's highest court. This is a serious position that requires experience, understanding of the law, a sense of dignity and -- it should go without saying -- good judgment. Hunter, a Cary attorney with an undistinguished practice, falls short.

Martin, in contrast, brings the right qualities to the bench. He's earned praise for the eight years he's already served on the Supreme Court, such as this statement by all five living former chief justices, including Greensboro's Henry E. Frye and James G. Exum Jr.: "He is an experienced jurist who writes excellent judicial opinions, examines legal issues carefully and methodically, and upholds high standards of judicial excellence."

Before his first election in 1998, Martin served as a Superior Court judge in Pitt County and on the N.C. Court of Appeals. He's also taught at the Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill and N.C. Central law schools.

Like most members of North Carolina's appellate judiciary, Martin doesn't mix politics with court business. He doesn't espouse an ideological agenda or commit himself to positions on hot-button issues. Rather, he's a key part of the seven-member Supreme Court's centrist majority. Critics of judges who "legislate from the bench" find little evidence of that happening in North Carolina. Martin's dedication to the rule of law and judicial restraint is one reason why.

It's more important in this judicial race than in any other on this year's ballot for voters to make the right decision and re-elect Mark Martin. If Rachel Hunter were to win, the publicity she might attract in the next eight years probably wouldn't improve the image of the state's top court."


Connie Mack Jr


I have not decided whether to run for anything. Keith Karlsson is the Chairman of the Wake County Party.* John

Good for you John, smart move. Your Chairman has requested that I give another 4 grand to the local party to get the vote out this week. As a loyal Democrat I will do so like all of the other requests from your diverse party and candiates.

I have given money to Larry Kissel and wholeheartedly support him and Heath Shuler.* John

Give more until it hurts John. hock the kids if you have to, or your kids will have very short future in a Republican society and government.

I do know when someone shows by her public statements and behavior that she is not fit for judicial office. Maybe she would surprise us and be a great judge. But if so, then your campaign has done extraordinary damage to her image, Connie. * John

She will be one great judge John. Why do you think the whole political est is knocking themselves silly about this race?

(Preparing to see the above quote on your website, edited to: "... she would . . . be a great judge. . . . extraordinary."* John Burns

Be Specic John! Don't be like the mainstream media and jerk a quote around like Ed does!

I am busy, get out there and knock on doors or hawk the phon e John. Do something besides trying to pile on like some cheap religious conservative freaks.

Ed Cone

Mary,

I don't hate her, or have personal feelings of any kind toward her. And I'm not trying to provoke a reaction. In fact, I've ignored the campaign of late, in hopes that it would just disappear. The Goebbals thing, unfortunately, is too much to ignore.

She has run a grotesque campaign, and has shown herself uniquely unqualified for a spot on the state supreme court.

John Burns

Stop fibbing Ed! You know dang well who Don is. And besides, everytime you start something. It lights up the RLH site as usual with these kind of comments by other blogging forums in the state. Keep it up Ed. I told you to ignore the campaign. I am now considering you as a politicial consultant with a excellent future for oppostion research.

I'm going to be honest....I don't dislike her views.

While I don't understand the whole "madam justice" thing, I think someone like her could be good for our state. What with all the Jim Blacks and likeminded criminals in office now. We've tried voting in the same old people to change things for the better, but all we seem to get is the same old thing.

Why not shake things up? Why not try something different? 'The same old' hase proven ineffective.

We gripe about misspending and corruption yet we keep the same type of people in office.

I was convinced that this woman would be a complete nutcase when I originally went to her site, but after reading some of her posts, I sort of thought the same thing as Hothead . . . how much worse could "Madame Justice" do than the folks currently there? Sure, she's probably a little odd, but maybe that's what we need instead of the same ol' same ol'.

Actually, I don't know who Frantz is, but I do know that The CA is a Greensboro attorney named Sam Spagnola.

The Charlotte Observer has also endorsed Justice Mark Martin for NC Supreme Court:

Martin vs. Hunter

Voters take note: The race between Associate Justice Mark Martin and challenger Rachael Lea Hunter is no race. Mark Martin is the obvious choice. Here's why.

Justice Martin is an experienced jurist, with 14 years on the bench, including Superior Court, Court of Appeals and seven years on the Supreme Court. He is a diligent judge and has won respect for his knowledge of the law.

Ms. Hunter, an attorney in private practice from Cary, isn't a suitable candidate for the high court. She lacks the legal grounding and demeanor a judge must have. She ran afoul of the state Board of Elections by trying to use the nickname "Madame Justice" on the ballot. She referred to a black congressional candidate as a "good slave." She tried to hoodwink voters into thinking former UNC basketball coach Dean Smith had endorsed her when he had not. Her erratic behavior makes it important to re-elect Mark Martin.


Gate

We have seen some crazy stuff in our lives. We have done some crazy stuff in our lives. But nothing like that. That is some crazy (deleted.) Dang, she went beyond calling him a nazi to comparing him to one specifically. She could have at least kept it generic.

The CA

Hey, actually I am really Don Vito Corleone.

Dr. Mary Johnson

Ed, you've demonstrated that you can ignore quite a bit.

And even if you could not ignore this, you could've made your point without calling the woman "batshit crazy".

Consider this. First, Rachel has been ill. Second, whatever you may think of her rhetoric & tactics, you lower youself to the same level you say you abhor when you poke your fun and provoke her husband and call her names.

Given my own experience with the fine, upstanding "honorable" members of the current NC Bar (comparisons to "the Beast" are actually not far off), I'm not so sure they couldn't use a good shaking up.

This thread has deteriorated as I predicted it would. It's a shame.

Ed Cone

It is a shame that Connie has done what Connie does, as we all knew he would.

That's one reason I've ignored this campaign as much as I could.

This time, I felt they had crossed a line. I knew they wanted me to feel that way, and that they seek attention of any kind. With a week to go, I was willing to do it once more.

Fortunately, this will be over soon.

I crossed out the batshit crazy part, you are right, no need to go there.

Nonsense. Nowhere in this thread has anyone yet to mention the words convicted felon or crackpot.

I voted today and I voted for Goebbels. Thanks for the info, Ed.

When you talk about the nasty mix of garbage and fecal matter that is Connie and his psychotic wife (We established a long time ago that Connie was beyond lunacy.), it is appropriate such a thread will deteriorate.

Frantz happens to be perhaps the most honest and best mechanic in Cary, NC. He also has an amazingly wonderful sense of humor and it seems Connie has decided to share that with all of us. That and what a crackpot of a campaign manager he is. I think Rachel would have been better off hiring a convicted felon to run her campaign.

Connie Mack Jr

Actually, I don't know who Frantz is, but I do know that The CA is a Greensboro attorney named Sam Spagnola.* Ed

Yes! So we notice after he has posted here 6000 thousand times what a creep you are about the law Ed.

Hey, actually I am really Don Vito Corleone.* CA aka Sam the full time federalist out of work lawyer on this site looking for clients

Good for you Sam. But I hate to tell you. Your acting career in the Godfather1 would be that of Sonny. You remember that part don't you Sam? Sonny was just a little slower than Vito the oldest of the Roma Tribe.

The Charlotte Observer has also endorsed Justice Mark Martin for NC Supreme Court:

Martin vs. Hunter

Voters take note: The race between Associate Justice Mark Martin and challenger Rachael Lea Hunter is no race. * Chief unknown editor and staff

No race is right! Getting a endorsement from the Charlotte Observer editorial editors is like getting a notice from the IRS that they have decided to open up a investigation of your 1980 tax returns to the present.

Wilimington Journal Supports Rachel

OUR VOICE, "ELECTION DAY 2006", WEEK OF OCTOBER 19-25, 2006

by EDITORIAL STAFF
The Wilmington Journal
Originally posted 10/19/2006

In just over two weeks, voters will go to the polls on Tuesday, November 7th for the all-important mid-term Congressional elections. The balance of power in both the House and the Senate is up for grabs, as voters determine whether the country should stay the course, or go forth in a new direction.

Here in North Carolina, there are several important local, county and statewide races voters will be asked to make choices in. This week, we'll focus on judicial candidates for the NC Supreme Court and the NC Court of Appeals.

These are non-partisan races, which means that you must vote for each judicial candidate separately from your other choices on the ballot. If you straight ticket vote (and we really hope that you do not), please make note that you still must vote for your judicial candidates separately.

On Election Day, polls open at 6:30 a.m., and close at 7:30 p.m. One Stop early voting begins today in New Hanover County, ending Nov. 4 at 1:00 p.m.

The state's two highest courts of law are where historic decisions of jurisprudence are made. This week, we proudly recommend several candidates for seats on the judiciary who have proven to be outstanding jurists who know the law, and fairly apply it with without fear or favor.
RACHEL LEA HUNTER FOR NC SUPREME COURT

She is certainly flamboyant, most definitely controversial. She called herself "Madame Justice," and proclaims her independence from the political machine, keeping her faith in the common sense of the people.

Attorney Rachel Lea Hunter is a "take-no-prisoners" fighter who believes the criminal justice system should serve the people.

A native of Monroeville, Pa., Hunter earned her law degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1988, graduating in the top third of her class. She served as a judicial law clerk until January 2001, when she joined a law firm in Durham, where she presently practices.

"We have a two-tiered system of justice in this country," Hunter told the NC Bar Association Convention last June. "There is one brand of justice for the rich and powerful (Dick Cheney and Patrick Kennedy are recent examples). There is another if you are poor or African American or a member of some other minority."

"A system of justice that favors the rich and powerful cannot long survive and we need to restore justice to all people so that they can once again have confidence in our courts."

Hunter is young, but she long experience in researching judicial opinions and issues, in addition to her noble commitment to making the judicial system work for all people, makes her a unique choice for the NC Supreme Court.

We wholeheartedly endorse Rachel Lea Hunter.

North Carolina progressive Democrats endorse Republican for NC Supreme Court over self proclaimed progressive Democrat Rachel Lea Hunter

In the most progressive county in the State of North Carolina, the Orange County Democratic Party endorses Justice Mark Martin for NC Supreme Court.

Chapel Hill Town Council Member, Mark Kleinschmidt, endorses Justice Mark Martin for NC Supreme Court.

The CA

Connie, this website would not be the place for me to look for clients, and I am very much in business.

As far as Corleone's go, I'd rather be Sonny than Fredo.

Ed, you should have left the "batshit crazy" part in.

John Burns

Does anyone think he sees the irony in touting an endorsement from one of NC's African-American newspapers and then calling, even jokingly, for reinstitution of the poll tax?

Connie, this website would not be the place for me to look for clients, and I am very much in business.* Sam

I am sure you are Sam. But you must be bumdle of energy during the day to stay here and than rush to court and meet clients who have no idea you hang on a blogging site giving some jouralist hell about his politics.

As far as Corleone's go, I'd rather be Sonny than Fredo. * Sam

Either way Sam, you still end up dead like they did in the flick. Not really an example of finding role models in this day and time of republican chaos.

Ed, you should have left the "batshit crazy" part in.* Sam

"Rachel Lea Hunter comes across as batshit crazy" Ed

He sure did! He even drew a line though it to prove he really didn't mean it. I guess Ed is in to psychic mind reading as we all won't pretend to see it.

Does anyone think he sees the irony in touting an endorsement from one of NC's African-American newspapers and then calling, even jokingly, for reinstitution of the poll tax?* John Burns

Yeah! Sorted like calling Vernon a Uncle Tom and staying on the GOP plantation. John! You have no idea of the Afica-America culture, no matter how much you tout your white frat boy liberal democrat values.

I think Ed should apologize....right after Connie does...(cheap skate demon caster)* Me

Having Ed apologize for drawing a line though his statement is like Hilter saying the Polish Army started the War first. Which proves Ed bought into the Goebbles GOP myth.

You are right Me! I apologize for making that statement for calling Ed a Cheapskate. As to the demon part. That is between him and the Wake Forest football team and it's host of Baptist preachers who want to make him an example about his Carolina Blue Demon be cast into the Red Zone of Republican politics.

I donno...sorta like Connie's description too...

That is what it is all about me! Jefferson said a educated voter will always make the right choice if informed on the fruits of liberty.

I think what Jefferson MEANT to say was, "...if informed on the fruitcakes".

Fred Gregory

A lot of well informed comments from RLH crowd ( of one ).Not ! Problem is a large majority of the voters wou go into the booth and get down to the end of the ballot don't have any freaking idea about the opposing judicial candidates in these races,
thanks to our Democrat controlled General Assembly who made them non-partisan because Republicans were wining too many . Thus RLH may be unqualified and batshit crazy but she has got an even chance of being elected.
At least that's the way I see the odds.

Why did she stop at comparing him to Goebbels? If you are going to link a guy to a Nazi, you might as well go all out and compare him to Hitler.

I agree with Ed, this has got to be some of the craziest bat**** we have ever seen. Makes the attack ads we have created look like Christmas Cards.

In today's Rachel Hunter Press release. Congrats Ed. Once again you make it in to her Press Release.

GOP MARTIN SUPPORTER JOURNALIST
CALLS RACHEL BATSHIT CRAZY?


Oct 30, 2006

It's hard to say that Rachel Lea Hunter has sunk to a new low in her campaign for the state Supreme Court; after all, this is a woman who compared a black candidate to a slave on a plantation, lied about a major endorsement, and referred to her opponent and his backers as "the beast" and "mafia."

But in her latest campaign release, Hunter slithers further into the muck. She not only compares Justice Mark Martin to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, she runs a photo of Goebbels alongside a photo of Martin.

Remember, she's not just running for any office...Rachel Lea Hunter wants to be on the North Carolina Supreme Court.

Last time out, when she ran as a Republican, Rachel Lea Hunter merely seemed underqualified and undignified. This time, as a Democrat (albeit one disowned by party leadership), Rachel Lea Hunter comes across as BATSHIT CRAZY and completely unsuited for a seat on the state's high court.* Ed Cone.

*Awarding winning Liberal Journalist Of The Greensboro News and Record.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alas, given the rhetoric and imagery of other campaigns in recent weeks, invoking comparisons to the Nazis as the campaign season draws to a close seems almost tame and even predictable.

Without taking Rachel Hunter's "side" on any issue, I understand that you hate her and her rhetoric. You think she's not qualified for the job she's seeking. And all of that is fine. It's a free country. But "batshit crazy" takes the name-calling a bit too far in "civil" discourse.

You're also fairly obviously trying to provoke someone who will take the nasty slur as an invitation to defend her honor. Then the gang-bashing will begin.

It would be nice if he would not take the bait this time . . . and let this particular provovation swing in the wind for what it is."

ConnieFreakShow

Anyone notice that Connie claims the Wake Dems are hitting him up for another $4 thousand? Which begs the question: Why did they keep the first $4 thousand when they know this candidate is "batshit crazy"?

One would think that after the racist rhetoric, the freak show campaign, and the reference to Jerry Meek (chair of the NC Democratic Party) being Adolph Hitler they'd get rid of her cash just on the principle of the matter.

One would think, but one would be wrong.

Anonymous

It is sad that the candidate in question has basically said that anyone who critizes her is evil and calls them names only suited for the worst of villains. In my opinion, that is reason enough for her to be dismissed as a candidate, as one wonders how she would get along with other NC Supreme Court justices on a daily basis. Perhaps her intentions are not necessarily bad as she suffers from medical problems, but even her most ardent supporters surely cannot condone the type of behavior seen in her campaign.

"Keep it up Batshit republicans, You are driving more voters to polls for the RLH campaign."

Only in the Alternate Reality that the RLH campaign obviously exists.

Keep posting, Connie.

Don Frantz

This is Don Frantz. Thank You to those who informed me of this discussion.

What Connie posted above was an email conversation we had a few days back. I have asked to be removed from their email list numerous times - since I never asked to be on it in the first place - but they have refused to remove me, and continue to offend me with their vile remarks. Since turn about is fair play, I'll reply to an email ocassionally. What you see above is typical of the responses I get from Connie. He has called me pretty much every name in the book, and some I've never even heard of. I guess the name calling helps him deal with his many shotcomings? I don't know.

I do know he's single handidly responsible for ruining his wifes name, credibility, career, campaign, and reputation though. They seem to believe that any publicity is good publicity. In regards to Judicial elections however, PT Barnum was wrong.

I apologize those of you who wasted precious minutes of your lives by reading the above. I did not ask to be brought into this discussion and until now I have not participated. Although I am sure conspiracy Connie will argue otherwise.

Right Bubba! Do you really believe that reality is your political strong point on the net like your leader George Bush or maybe the therapy term " denial" is another weak point in the playbook of republican politics. I like you Bubba, but your obession of Ed is killing you and of course your world famous internet death threat toward me was a joke. Right?

Connie Mack Jr

I'll reply to an email ocassionally. * Addicted Don

Huh Donald! It appears that the number of 10 e-mails in less than 24 hours is not a issue with your obession of the RLH campaign along with your buddy Barbara. Have you consider more intense therapy as a political expert in local politics and world affairs as a career move in Republican Cary politics?

By the way! Is there any reason why you used the persona the CIA fixer on the net to stalk me?

Now get out there and change the oil in Justice Martin Republican Cadillac before the Oil runs out in Iraq and our American dead bodies.

Okay, in celebration of Rachel Crackpot's last run for public office I am going to call for a celebration, election night at Chili's in Cary starting at 7:00pm. Let's have some drinks and laugh at the demise of the the Crackpot. They've got TV's in the bar area, it'll be perfect. Rachel Crackpot is going to loose and loose badly on election day.* John Barbara prancing around on his international award winning Blog


Hi John! We know you are glue to this thread with your obession internet addiction issue about the RLH campaign. I will be dropping by your pre-victory party to collect your wager with my new instant cam from CVS to catch another facial expression of a loser. Is there any reason why you spell loose instead of lose or have start drinking cheap beer?

ps.... It might take a day for you to roll down this thread, but a addicted fool like you will do anything for attention.
