  1. Dave Gervais is a political hack!

    Just because he was an appointment by the establishment does not mean he is qualified for the job.

    When appointments are made they are for political favors and take the people’s choice away.

  2. David Gervais is a very good man with a long history of service and civility.

    AND he is certainly not a political hack!I wonder how “Stand4truth” knows David.

  3. Jeez – Most of the ultra conservatives here haven’t liked a judge since Samuel in the old testament.

  4. I’m guessing their discussing a lawsuit against K Mart, to accept Radio Shack Rewards Points.

  5. What is “commonsense”? Is that somehow related to “secondamendment”? Meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwww…

  6. I don’t know anything about Gervais.

    But most of the judges in McHenry —especially the older ones are political hacks.

    The Fake News ran a crazy tribute to Judge Prather recently.

    But it never mentioned her tons of reversals by higher courts.

    What she did in the Gauger case was a sin.

  7. Patrick Kenneally doesn’t miss an opportunity for a free meal and drinks while shuffling around in his loafers.

    In my opinion he should be Director of the FBI*.

    * Fat…Bald…Ignorant

  8. Whjat’s all that white stuff on Lauf’s nose? And why is Germaine scowling at her in that photo? Weird.

  9. White stuff on Lauf’s nose.

    Yeah, it’s there but what is it?

    Gervaise does look askance over her appearance tho.

  10. Jump to the 4th foto from the top.

    That “large” lady in the green hooded muumuu stold all the crab sliders left in that vessel.

    Made me mad.

    I told her to put at least half back.

    She said she was judge’s wife and ‘didn’t have to put anything back.

    I asked her who she was. She said “Guess!”

    I asked for some of my money back.

  11. Willibrandt rained on Mary Nader’s parade when the backtracked from retiring and ran for circuit judge..

    She was black guarding Demetri for all she was worth.

    Until Willbrandt pulled the rug out from under her.

    She also ate so many Easter peeps, she ‘couldn’t make it’ to work in 2017.

    That’s one reason why Germaine says he’ll be on time.

    So many loafers in the McHenry Co. courthouse, starting with the poor judges.

  12. Somehow I missed this big event, But Joe Gottemoller was there to stink it up, so I’m kinda glad I missed it.

    Look at all the brown nosers.
