Familiarity Breeds Contempt

Of all the reasons not to run for public office, your child campaigning against you is the most convincing.  A lawyer running for judge in Oklahoma is having that problem.  Check out this ad and the aptly-named website http://donotvoteformydad.com/  The site was created by his daughter, who says — surprise — she never had a very good relationship with him. 

I wonder if the Supreme Court’s recent reshaping of campaign finance reform affects good old fashioned family spite.
