California: report recommends removal of judge for campaign-finance violation

The Santa Maria Times reports: The trial attorney for the Commission on Judicial Performance believes Santa Barbara County Superior Court Judge Diana Hall should be removed from office.

The recommendation was made by Andrew Blum, examiner for the commission, in the opening brief he submitted Monday in response to the findings of a panel of judges appointed by the commission to conduct a disciplinary hearing for Hall in April. ...

The campaign-finance charge arose after Hall accepted a financial donation from a friend but reported it as her own money.

Blum said that Hall continued to sign false campaign statements under penalty of perjury even though she had ample time to consider her actions. -- Attorney recommends Hall's removal from bench
