Candidate misrepresents himself

Mike Colantuono, a candidate judge, represents himself as “The Prosecutor for Superior Court Judge.” He should be more specific about his “prosecutorial experience” as a city attorney. How many criminal jury trials has he tried? What type of “offenders” has he prosecuted? Does he have experience in a District Attorney’s Office?

He is pictured in a campaign literature in a judicial robe. He should have done his research and checked the California Judicial Conduct Handbook which states that a person who does not normally wear a robe should not use pictures of himself or herself in a robe in campaign literature.
