The McHenry Judicial Ethics PAC, run by person or persons unknown, sent out another negative email about McHenry County Clerk Mary McClellan the day after Christmas.
Mary McClellan’s Fists of Rage
In 2016, Mary McClellan was sued by a former employee for assault, as reported by McHenry County Blog. The former employee, Maria Ramos Warnecke, alleged that Mary McClellan, in a fit of rage, thrusted her hands and arms towards Maria’s face and made her fear “imminent battery.”
The lawsuit claims that Maria was injured by Mary McClellan’s conduct and had suffered damages resulting from Mary’s actions.
Maria, the former employee, who was fired by Mary McClellan after the alleged incident, also sought $50,000 in damages.
Ultimately, the case was closed, and one might assume it was settled outside of court.
However, that does not mitigate the disturbing trend of improprieties from Mary McClellan.
Everyone gets angry from time to time.
However, it’s not acceptable to lose control of your anger to the point where someone is either scared or in fear of you.
This is especially troubling for someone who is running to be a judge.
On a daily basis, judges deal with frustrating circumstances. I
t’s their job to deal with individuals who are, most likely, frustrated because they are in court.
If an individual is short-tempered or is incapable of dealing with their emotions maturely, than that person does not have the judicial temperament necessary to preside over a courtroom.
If Mary McClellan can’t calmly and maturely deal with an employee, can she deal with individuals, on a daily basis, in a tense environment like a courtroom.

Instead of running for re-election for McHenry County Clerk, McClellan is on the ballot for judge and is running against three men.
