Attorney Michelle MacDonald is running for Supreme Court for the third time, this time against Justice Margaret Chutich. MacDonald was reinstated to practice in April, subject to completion of the professional responsibility exam and is on probation.
She is attempting to create a third political party called “Revolutionize Family Court” and provided a form on her web site to support forming the party. As of 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, June 5 the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State had not received a petition.
Her election web site states: “If anybody else wants to come with me, this moment will be the beginning of something real, and fun, and inspiring in this God forsaken business — and we will do it together!”
MacDonald also alleged that judges are authorized to take gifts of up to $150, without limit. “Did you know it is legal to bribe your judge?” her website asks. She also says that judges have created immunity to protect their incompetent, negligent, fraudulent or malicious conduct.
Court of Appeals Judge Lucinda Jesson also faces a challenge from Anthony L. Brown, who lists his campaign address at 413 Wacouta St., Suite 140, in St. Paul.
