Consistent with The Leslie Brodie Report’s commitment to integrity and adherence to the highest level of ethical journalism, and in order to report on both sides of a controversy, Mr. Clint Parish — Yolo County Deputy District Attorney — is hereby being asked to opine whether Yolo County Presiding Judge Dave Rosenberg highly inappropriate role as spokesperson/political advocate of Yolo County Superior Court Judge Dan Maguire — may be in violation of California’s Cannon of Judicial Ethics
Specifically, in response to a recent controversy concerning a mailer sent by the Clint Parish’s campaign which sought to portray Judge Maguire as Arnold Schwarzenegger “bagman,” and being part of Schwarzenegger’s “inner circle” which recommended the release of convicted murderer Esteban Nunez, the son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez — a highly perturbed Judge Rosenberg launched an unprecedented attack on Parish. This, despite knowing full well that California Canons of Judicial Ethics permit a judicial officers to only “endorse” candidates for judicial office.
Specifically, and consistent with his new role, Judge Rosenberg resorted to sending a robocall out to many voters “to set the record straight” of what he called, “a nasty political hit piece” which “contains flat out lies and deceptions about a highly respected Judge here in Yolo County, Judge Dan Maguire.”
Judge Rosenberg also promised to retaliate against Parish and issued a thinly veiled threat against him. “This sort of phlegm tends to backfire. It flies back in the face of the expectorant,” Rosenberg stated.
Please observe that, rather than contacting Mr. Parish directly, the query is being delivered publicly, here and now.
