Another Bad Day At Office For Judge Jill Rangos Becomes Bad Day For Kathleen McCullough, Too

Kathleen McCullough drew the wrong judge for sentencing today.

First, the judge was a mediocre Republican (on a lopsidedly Democratic bench), imposing sentence on a relative of a Republican elected official whom the local Republican establishment is trying to destroy.

Second, the crimes for which Ms. McCullough was convicted were economic, and Judge Jill Rangos (right) reserves leniency for cases that result in the violent death of children (as part of her lifelong "dedication to alleviating difficult circumstances for children," according to the biography published by her family's foundation). Had this case involved a nine-year-old in a pool of blood, Ms. McCullough could have expected, from precedent, to hear a pronouncement of "time served" as she walked to the street.

Who the hell do you think you are? Do you even know Judge Rangos? I guess part of serving the public is putting up with this kind of character assassination.

Analyzing Judge Rangos' performance, with specific examples, may seem like a "hit job" to her supporters, but that is the cost of supporting the indefensible.

Which aspect of the Lanese decision did you like best? Wild guess: That the judge was willing to overlook the flee-to-Vietnam episode, and the dead nine-year-old, in order to vindicate an Upper St. Clair resident's gun rights.
