I agree. Pearson has extremely limited experience. Additionally, by marriage isn't Pearson connected to disbarred ex-judge Taylor? Not to be forgotten, it's been said they are active in the same church from which Taylor stole money during the infamous "Ten Commandments" heist?

Who is running?

What is said when NOT running for office is as important as what is said during scripted interviews during a campaign. When Taylor locked himself in the Judge's chambers as the TBI were closing in, Pearson was called by a victim's family. The victim's family had received several frantic phone calls from employees in the courthouse as well as a worried, close relative of Pearson's, who were all terrified over the panic which Taylor's actions had caused in their workplace and in the courtroom. Even though the assistant DA, Pearson knew, and was aware of all of the state's allegations against Taylor, as well as the victim's lawsuits' which had been filed, Mr. Pearson emphatically stated that he believed all this body of information was 'allegations'. He clearly stated that until Mr. Taylor was convicted and proven guilty, he would not believe the allegations and complaints were true because he knew Mr. Taylor to be "the most stable, upright, hard-working and professional person he works with".

Remember this when you vote for Circuit Court Judge. We need qualified, seasoned judges to serve US as citizens....not people who will choose to turn a blind eye against victims of criminals due to their own personal perceptions, church affiliations or alliances.

You will be happy to know that this information is very much incorrect as Alex never supported ANY claim of Jay Taylor's innocence. Pearson never "emphatically stated" that the allegations were merely allegations, and he never, ever, ever said that "he would not believe the allegations were true." Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Mr. Pearson was the first person to ask Judge Taylor to recuse himself from hearing cases when the investigation against Taylor started.

Hate to burst your bubble but Linda Woolsey and her attorney husband Roger Woolsey are elbow deep in the poop when it comes to favors for relatives and friends. She is neither qualified nor trust worthy and she has unilaterally destroyed families.
