  1. '..... just look at the activists ' [Lake]

    I hate the Illinois / Southern California Copleys. Hate them, hate them, hate them.

    But I will say this for the San Diego Union Tribune: Full and equal biographies and same sized color photographs for all candidates in local elections.

    Will our adversaries ever cease to amaze us?

    The Associated Press reported last month that Kratz sent 30 text messages to a 26-year-old domestic abuse victim while he prosecuted her ex-boyfriend on a strangulation charge.

    The 50-year-old Kratz called the woman a “hot nymph” and asked if she would enjoy secret contact with a married district attorney.

    The woman, Stephanie Van Groll, complained to police about the harassment and Kratz was removed from the case. Van Groll’s attorney, Michael Fox, didn’t immediately return a message on Monday.

    Several other women have come forward with accusations Kratz used his position to try to start relationships with them since the AP reported the text messages.

    The state Justice Department investigated Kratz but found the text messages were not illegal. The state Office of Lawyer Regulation closed the case against Kratz in March without a formal review. The office last month reopened the case, though, amid a barrage of criticism against Kratz following the AP’s stories.

    Gov. Jim Doyle began working to remove Kratz from office a little less than two weeks ago. Kratz’s attorney said last week he would resign before Friday.
