Jan Schill, the daughter of a judicial candidate in Oklahoma, really doesn't want her father to be a judge. So much so that she took out a
full-page ad telling people not to vote for him. And started a blog
is live! The site, and its accompanying newspaper ad ("DO NOT VOTE FOR MY DAD...
HE WOULD NOT BE A GOOD JUDGE!") are the products of a campaign started by Oklahoma judicial candidate John Mantooth's daughter, Jan Schill, and her
husband Andrew Schill. [Click here to see a larger

So far, the website consists of links to cases where Mantooth was sued, as well as a really gross story about worm-filled
After a delightful lunch, I unwrapped the chocolates in anticipation of a quick dessert before returning to work. Also offering a chocolate to one of
my friends, I took a quick bite. However, upon recognizing an unfamiliar and unpleasant taste I yelled in shock for my friend to stop. My deepest
momentary fear was realized when a survey of the remaining chocolate revealed the remains of the numerous worms and weevils that had long ago devoured
the aged chocolate.
The following day would find a slightly enraged voicemail from John Mantooth who had discovered that I was under the erroneous assumptions that the
gift was for me. He wanted to clarify that the rusted golden basket, pocket knife, stale potpourri and worm-ridden chocolates were not for me, but
were in fact for my wife, his second daughter, for Christmas! He did not want her to think she was forgotten! The slight humor I had originally felt
quickly turned to anger and a renewed sadness for the years of such indifference my wife had endured.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Wow, this guy sure does have a lot more stacked up in front than most. This just may be one election to keep an eye on, for surely he won't win the
election, although we've seen politicians get elected with much larger hurdles, such as former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry.
This should be a good lesson: Don't piss off the women in your life, whether it be an ex-wife, sister, daughter or friend, as they will find a way to
"get back" at you.

We are shocked both by the extent and the nature of the media coverage this story has generated. And we completely agree with Mr. Mantooth that
the voters should look at his experience and record when deciding how to cast their vote for District Judge. It is our sincere hope that you will

I would definitely say that this is one troubled relationship that doesn't look like it will mend anytime soon, though the love of a father for his
daughter should be able to forgive even something like this.
