Ind. Courts - "Bartholomew Co. Prosecutor Bill Nash is campaigning against Superior Court 1 Judge Chris Monroe and supporting Monroe’s opponent in the Republican primary"

That is the lede to a $$ story by Chris Schilling in the Columbus Republic. More:

Nash, a Republican, has mailed personal letters to people he views as his supporters, attacking Monroe’s temperament, the efficiency with which he runs the court and his sentencing record in criminal cases. * * *

In a copy of a letter obtained by the newspaper, Nash wrote that he felt he had no other “realistic options” left for dealing with Monroe than mailing what he acknowledges is a “negative political campaign letter.” He noted that trial court judges are almost never removed from the bench for judicial misconduct unless they commit a crime.
