Wismer a good man

It is frightening that a man who has been found by a court to be a wife abuser felt he had so much power as a judge that he violated the order of protection against him now wants to try and regain the judgeship he was removed from for not only judicial misconduct but incompetence. Yet, that is what Phillip Woolbright is trying to do.
As a woman, it frightens me for all women and our families that a woman abuser who was found by a court commissioner to having committed domestic violence against his then wife would decide cases concerning abuse.
If you Google Phillip Woolbright, as I did, here is what can be found. After being elected judge of the Arrowhead Justice of the Peace Court in 2010, he was removed from office by the Arizona Supreme Court, his wife had a protection order filed against him, he violated the order by going to her home, claimed his children were kidnapped by her, suggested to a police officer that he would use his power as a judge to authorize a search warrant to search his wife’s house, was convicted of interfering with judicial proceedings, another judge was forced to make a judicial complaint against him for being incompetent in handling cases.
What you will also find equally concerning is he does not seem to have a realization that he has done anything wrong. Mr. Woolbright claims he’s the victim of a court system that is rotten, corrupt and the judges are lying about him. He denies committing domestic violence and breaking a protection order of the court. In short, everyone is out to “get him.”
We need for our families’ sake to re-elect incumbent Judge Craig Wismer who is a good man and has done a fine job.
