Madison County Circuit Court Judge, Don Weber, the only Madison County Republican judge, has found himself with little to do since the Democratic big boys in legal circles have been moving for substitute judges each time they find themselves in his courtroom. So far 35 cases have been yanked from Weber by Chief Judge Edward Ferguson.
Weber is on the November ballot to retain his position and by keeping cases from him, the democrats have made his having any kind of record to run on impossible. Ah, life in Madison County. The local democrats have not recovered from their guy's loss to Lloyd Karmeier (R) for the Illinois Supreme Court and are not going to sit idly by while even one lone republican holds court office here. It's a birthright, don't you know. Democrats in Madison County get every office.
